Tip of the Week - Gift Cards

Posted in 'Tips' on January 27, 2010

If you are like most people, you would have received at least one gift card for Christmas. I love them. Especially because you can take them shopping during the sales and receive more bang for your buck.

The problem I find though, is that I spend part of the $ amount on the card and then put it back in my wallet and forget that it is there. 2 months later I will be shopping and find something in that store that I want to buy. I'll pull out the gift card and have absolutely no idea how much is on there. It's a lovely surprise if there is lots on there, but pretty disappointing if I find out there is only 28 cents left on there.

Recently I was in a shop and the sales assistant processed my gift card and then before handing it back to me, took a nikko pen and wrote the balance on the card for me. Next time I am shopping I will know exactly how much is left on the card.

I thought this was a great idea and will be doing that from now on! Try it and see....
