It’s coming closer, kids . . .
Yup, it’s the time of the year for all of us to be panicking about gift-giving. Some people, it’s easy; Joseph has an XBox and wants guitar lessons. Simple. Maggie wants clothes. Also not hard. But some people, it gets trickier. And a good option for people who are tricky to shop for is a gift card of some kind. Everyone has gift cards these days, including folks like Dell:
This year, Americans are starting their holiday shopping earlier than ever. According to a recent National Retail Federation survey, nearly half of Americans report they began shopping for the holidays before Halloween and plan to spend even more than last year. Additionally, consumers lives are have gone increasingly digital and mobile – this could truly be the first, all-out mobile and digital holiday shopping season as shoppers use their mobile devices and new mobile payments tools such as Passbook.
Reflecting this trend, major retail and restaurant brands across the country like Dell are teaming up this month with digital gifting company CashStar to offer special “Give One, Get One” eGift Card deals for those shoppers looking to get a head start on the holidays. For a limited time, for every $400 spent in Dell eGift Cards, consumers receive an extra $75 eGift Card. eGift Cards have become one of the most popular gift choices for the holidays.
