What is a gift card

A gift card (also called gift token or gift certificate) is a prepaid card. It stores a certain amount of money on the card and is issued by a banking institution or a retailer. It is used as an alternative to cash purchases for a specific store or a specific nature of business

A gift card is quite similar to the basic structure of a debit card but they both differ greatly in the functionality.Even the ability to swipe both up at Visa terminals often gets people confused. While they might sound same due to the fact that cash can be loaded onto them, they actually are quite different technically

A debit card works as a rechargeable card that can be loaded with funds every time you run out. You can use them at any Visa terminal and can purchase any item that you want to. However gift cards do not offer this privilege. With a gift card, it is possible that it might only work at a specific outlet, or a specific business, or for specific purchases. In addition, gift-cards are intended for one time usage and hence possess no recharge option. Also, these cards cannot be redeemed for cash purposes

There are a number of different gift card options available in the market. They can serve as a help for obtaining discount. They can also be gifted to your loved ones where making a gift selection is becoming difficult. Read out the different types of cards you can gain access to
