Everyone agrees, gift cards are a great gift. Recipients loves them because they can get what they really want, and givers loves them because it takes the guess work out of gift giving. It’s all around a good gift idea — especially for the most difficult people to shop for.
What could possibly make giving a gift card even easier? Western Union Gift and Gift Card.
At Western Union Gift and Gift Card the gift giver can select a card, include a personalized message, load a gift card with $5-$100** and have it mailed directly to the recipient online in a matter of minutes (well the purchase takes a matter of minutes, the mailing takes as long as first class mail takes). How easy is that! I love that the gift card arrives tucked into a card as if you went out to the store and bought everything yourself. Want to add another personal touch? The gift giver can even leave a message (for free) for the recipient to hear when they receive the card and call to activate it.
So what does all of this convenience cost? Just $5. Since that includes the card and the postage, even for frugal me, that’s a deal. Wanna make it an even better deal? Through September 1, 2012 use the coupon code WUGIFTPROMO7 at checkout to save 25% off the $5 fee. (Limit one (1) coupon per transaction. No cash redemption value.

When the recipient receives the Western Union gift card, it can be activated online or by phone and then used anywhere debit MasterCard is accepted. So who will be the recipient of the first Western Union Gift and Gift Card you send?
