    What ever you do, don’t buy a Visa gift card. Most of them have monthly fees as long as there is a balance. I didn’t use a 100 gift card for about 6 months after activating it. They were charging me $5 per month for a service fee. If I wouldn’t have used that, eventually it would have whittled away to nothing. In the end I only was able to use $70 of the $100 that my friend gave me. There’s something wrong with that.

    Yea!! I wish there wasn’t such a stigma about giving cash. Theres really nothing wrong with it. It doesn’t expire or go bad, and they take it literally everywhere. I had to go out on a limb this xmas– in order to give my girlfriend an ear piercing, (that she’s really wanted) I had to risk putting cash in a little paper folded up the size of a gift card with a little note written on it. This way she could use it everywhere and get what she really wanted. It was hit or miss…results were good tho 🙂

    CASH ROCKS! I’d rather get cash than a gift card anyday. I give cash, except to people like my mother, who will buy things for other people with it. Her, I give gift cards to. But I know her well, and I can totally rock her gift card world!

    Cash rocks but gift cards are good too especially when you get them from the stores you go to.

    I like getting giftcards, but I dont like giving them. I think it is okay to give gift cards to people you aren’t close to, but still deserve a gift.

    By the way, don’t get a giftcard to any local mom & pop stores. They are shitty and they don’t work most of the time.

    I’m not opposed to giving gift cards, but you have to be very careful to make sure the card has been activated properly. Last year there were a couple of people we gave gift cards to, and when they tried to use it, they were told there was no money on it! And you have to be careful to be sure the person actually loves to shop at the particular store you’re getting the gift card from.

    i usually get gift cards for people i dont know what else to get for them, as you get older its much harder to search for those people and gift cards are quick and easy way to get them what they want!

    It’s had to choice good gift. Gift card is good choice, but not the best. I’m going to write article in my blog about Christbas gifts ideas.

    A gift card is an ok gift if you really have no idea what to get someone. But it does seem impersonal, might as well just give them money so they can choose where they want to go and what they want to get. I've never given a gift card, I just try and get what I think the person will want.
