I know, it looks like this whole year has been turned into holiday season and that too under the gun of Covid-19, and I know that we’re far from finding a cure for coronavirus and thousands of new patients are reported every day, but we have to make this better.
And nothing makes holidays more real than the end of lockdown and restoration of economic activities. Now is the time to show your loved ones that you care for them. And you do so with sending them gift cards.
In this post, I’m going to talk about top 5 gift cards that you can post to your loved ones to show them how much you love them. Lest we forget, there is nothing better than gifts to save friendships, bring dying relationships to life, and payback to the parents for all the love and care they showed for us.
Let us get to it after I answer the “what”. So, what is Razo Gold?
It is a virtual gift card for video game junkies. This company has partnered with many game companies and apps. The number is 2,500+. You can use this card with any of Razor Gold partners, in case you’re interested in games and entertainment apps, and purchase in-game items and unlock cool stuff that you’d otherwise have to pay for.
The best thing about Razor Gold is that there are on and off promotions and loyalty rewards for those who use this card regularly. So, this brings us back to the question of “why”. Why Razor Gold is better than many other gaming and apps cards? Well, first of all, Razor Gold is better because it offers you a bigger bang for your bucks. It is a gaming card that is neutral across all gaming and entertainment app platforms. And other than their frequent promotions and rewards, what you would love Razor Gold for is their amazing customer service.
And yes, there is an expiry date on every bonus and offer that you get, but you can always take a look at the expiry date in your transaction history and make the most out of every promotion before it expires. As far as buying this card goes, you do not have to go to their website to get it. There are over a million online and offline points where you can get the card and you reload it anytime with a wide array of digital payment options including Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Alipay and Yandex Money etc.
These cards can be gifted to anyone/acquired for one’s self in three different ways. You can either get them/send them over to someone as eGift (virtual cards), or you can print them at home with customized messaging and any of the available themes or you can get them/send via direct mail. Howsoever you do it, do know that it is a virtual deal. The money that you load the card with, turns into an Amazon account if you want so. With that account and the money, your loved ones can buy anything from Amazon.
Another way to use the card is to pick an item from Amazon, proceed to the checkout and then instead of paying via credit card, make the payment from the balance on your gift card.
You can buy Google’s gift cards anywhere in the USA from Walmart, Walgreens, BestBuy, Target, and online venues like Amazon *cough* *cough* PayPal Digital Gifts, Kroger, Target and Gyft, etc. Now, here comes the bigger question: how/where to use these cards? Since it is a Google Play product, you can use this card to shop a lot of digital products such as music, TV shows, movies, apps and magazines, and games, etc.
For your loved ones, you can get Google Play music subscription that will let them have access to millions of songs that they like. The best thing about Google Play is synchronization across all screens; in simple words, you access all the content that you buy using this card on different devices that use Android, iOS, Chromecast and web etc. The best thing: you do not need to wait or have a credit card by your side to redeem the card. You can do it anytime – within a matter of seconds.
Now, if you want to know why you would prefer this card to others, this solely depends on your/your loved ones’ shopping choice. There are certain benefits of using this gift card. For example, this is one of the most affordable gift cards for the kind of value that it offers to you. Since Google is an IT company, it brings to use its IT savvy to keep your transactions safe. They do this via a 256 bit SSL end to end encryption for each of the transaction to keep buyer’s personal/payment information safe.
The biggest benefit is how quickly everything is. It takes seconds to buy one and redeem one. You receive your card via email after they scan it. This happens within minutes of purchase and as soon as you receive the information via email you can use it.
The denominations are $20, $30, $50 and $100 for physical cards and $5, $10, $25. $50 and $100 for online cards. Irrespective of whether you go for the physical card or the online version of it, you would have to use the balance on buying digital products. You can click the link above and go to the Steam digital gift card page to find out the vendors in your area who sell the physical cards. The online cards can be acquired from their website.
You can buy any amount that you afford, and your near and dear ones would be able to use the card on Apple and iTunes store. There are many things – digital definitely – that can be bought with this card. For example, you can buy any songs, albums, apps, videos and games, etc. that you fancy and that is available on the iTunes store.
This was my conclusive list of the top 5 gift cards for holidays 2020. However, this does not mean that there are no other cards that can be seriously considered because of the joy they bring to one’s life. I’d recommend having a look at other cards too – such as Starbucks, Walmart, Victoria’s Secret, Target, Best Buy, Chipotle, Sephora and Fandango, etc.
Buy whichever you want to buy, but do not forget to share love, happiness, and joy with those who matter. There is nothing better than a digital gift card in this quarantine season. Let them know that you love them and you think of them – in the best way possible.
