Remember the excitement of getting a graduation or birthday card as a teenager? The anticipation of a crisp twenty or possibly fifty dollar bill folded up inside. That perfect treat yourself gift from a family member. But who sends cash anymore?
Safer than sending cash, most gift card companies like MasterCard have a customer service department to help in case the card is stolen or lost. Hang on to that activation receipt. However, if you want to be extra cautious, write down the gift card and customer service number. Most gift card companies can cancel the card and issue a new one! I am not sure about you but that makes me feel a lot better about sending them off in greeting cards!
Speaking of gift cards.. right now Staples has another deal but this time with MasterCard purchase. When you buy $300 in MasterCard Gift Cards, get a $20 Staples Gift Card. For those who want to earn extra rewards through their credit card, use it at checkout (check with your individual credit card company for details on available rewards programs).
Hurry, offer ends April 29th! Check the Staples site for a store near you and to get more details.
