Pennies2Win & Gift Cards – A Dynamic Duo!

Pennies2Win & Gift Cards – A Dynamic Duo!

 

As a great many of us experienced this past weekend, one of the best and most lucrative gifts under the tree continued to be gift cards.  Whether it was Hastings for the movie buff, or Macy’s for the clothes hound, gift cards were still there and in a huge variety.

 

One of the most amazing places to get gift cards is a website that won’t even make you pay as much as you would in the store.  Walmart, Lowes, Best Buy – at Pennies2Win.com the gift cards are right there on the screen and can be bid on by members.  In fact, a Walmart gift card can be gotten for a steal!  I seriously am not joking when I speak.  Two hundred free dollars on a gift card can be purchased on Pennies2Win.com for as low as one penny.  At Pennies2Win.com, there are no skyrocketing, ridiculous prices, you are already fully aware that the product is real and will be shipped no matter what, and – most of all – it is a WORRY-FREE and FUN shopping experience!  One of the phrases that should be up in lights for all to see is that, Pennies2Win.com allows users to purchase items at up to 99% off retail prices. Which is absolutely amazing when going for a gift card.

 

As we said before, gift cards are highly popular, and they rank as the most given gift by consumers in the United States.  They are the most-wanted gift by women, and the third-most wanted by men.  Gift cards have become increasingly popular simply because they relieve the buyer of selecting a specific gift that many times will simply be returned the day after Christmas.  Over eighty billion dollars was paid for gift cards this past year, and there seems to be no slow-down in sight.

 

For a little fun information, the first gift card actually came from the world of movie-buffs.  Blockbuster Entertainment made a gift card in 1994; it was made to replace gift certificates that were being counterfeited with the introduction of color copiers and color printers.  When this became all the rage, Blockbuster was immediately followed by a card issued by Neiman Marcus, and the Mobil Oil gas card, which also initially offered prepaid phone value provided by MCI.  Kmart was the next with its introduction of the ‘Kmart Cash Card’ which also provided prepaid phone time with AT&T. From these very early introductions, numerous retailers began to adopt their own ‘gift card’ programs, and it became a huge phenomenon.

 

Design now plays a large part in gift cards – color, gift cards that sing, play music – this industry has become bigger and more creative by the month.  They can also be custom tailored to meet specific needs.  Charity Gift Cards are a new item which now allow the buyers to make a charitable donation, and the gift recipient chooses a charity that will receive that donation.

 

As technology moves forward, virtual gift cards are now being delivered via e-mail to their recipient, the benefits being that they cannot be lost and that the consumer does not have to drive to the actual store in order to use their card.  Two of the top-sellers of gift cards – Target and Starbucks – have even launched mobile gift cards.

 

There have been many who say that gift cards are not a good gift, seeing as that a quarter of gift card recipients still haven’t spent their entire gift card from last year, but each and every year they come back bigger and stronger with a larger majority of people wanting this particular gift.

 

Each and every day these gift cards sell like hotcakes on Pennies2Win.com, and people are beyond excited to be able to bid pennies on the dollar and receive gift cards from some of the best stores, restaurants, and more through this website.  Penny auctions, oddly enough, are as historical and legendary as gift cards themselves – so the teaming up of the two really works well.

 

People are joining Pennies2Win.com more and more every day, as they read up and learn that this is not just another penny auction site.  This is a place where the members feel as if they are really getting their money’s worth – and they are.  The products that can be bid on range from gift cards all the way up to the latest and greatest technology on the market, and these bidders are walking away with these high-priced items for barely nothing.  So for all the people out there who are simply drooling to get that mega-expensive iPod, or camera, or need to have that latest appliance more than anything else in the world, here is exactly how you begin!
