5 Reasons Gift Cards Make Great Gifts

Giving Gift Cards is an easy way to pick out the perfect present & earn Cash Back with Rakuten.ca!

The holidays. A time to celebrate. A time to be thankful. A time to give gifts. But how do you find the perfect gift for that special someone, or your colleague, or… the mail-woman? Sometimes, the answer is as simple as  giving gift cards.

But why does gifting these cause such stress to the gifters? It’s actually the perfect present if you think about it. And we have. Here are our top 5 reasons gift cards should not be overlooked this season.

Earn Cash Back on Gift Cards

For starters, earn Cash Back when you order gift cards from Rakuten.ca. We offer gift cards from over 70 stores, all with various Cash Back offers. Really, it’s a win-win for everyone.

There’s Something for Everyone

Spa-goers? Check out WaySpa. Cinephiles? Cineplex has you covered. Traveller? Around the world with Air Canada. Restaurants, grocery stores, clothing, and so much more. And what do you get the person who has everything? A gift card, of course! So go ahead, give the gift of shopping. They’ll be really glad you did.

It’s Easy

Have you ever stressed over getting someone the perfect gift? Not spending too much, not spending too little all the while ensuring they LOVE what you gave them? Well, why not let THEM choose the perfect gift for themselves while staying within budget. It’s that easy. Gift cards make everyone happy because it saves the gifter from spending hours fretting over what to get, and lets the giftee off the hook because they don’t have to worry about offending anyone if they return the present. #BeenThereDoneThat

No Returns, No Hassles

With gift cards, there’s no need for gift receipts, keeping the tags, making sure they have 14 or 30 days to return the present. There’s also no stress on the receiver’s part because they won’t offend anyone if they don’t like the socks you got them. #ThanksGrandma

Did We Mention Cash Back?

No seriously, have you ever gotten a discount on gift cards? NO! But we offer Cash Back. That means money in your wallet (well, technically it’s a cheque or Paypal payment you get later). Get anywhere from 1.5% to 7.5% back when you order a gift card online. So let’s do the math…

No matter what gift card you’re looking at, you’re still earning money back when you normally wouldn’t have earned Cash Back. Let’s say your budget is $100 and you want to give them the gift of words, Coles* offers 5% Cash Back. That means, you’re giving $100 but you’re only spending $95. Thanks to the 5% Cash Back, you can get yourself a little latte love & sit back and enjoy your spare time!

With several stores available and different denominations available for each store, you’re sure to find the perfect present for everyone at the Rakuten Gift Card Shop. Giving Gift Cards are an easy way to save some stress this holiday season!
