Giftcards (caption: GiftRocket Review)When it comes to choosing the right gift for that special someone who has everything, choices are limited. This can also turn a process that should be fun into one of frustration. GiftRocket presents a unique solution to the age-old problem of those that are hard to buy for: a service that allows users to send gift cards for local stores or cash-based greetings. We’ll take a deeper look at GiftRocket and what makes it so special.

Receiving a GiftRocket Gift Card

Good news – you are on the receiving end of this innovative gift! But what do you do with it? Getting a GiftRocket gift card offers the flexibility of cash without the risk of physical currency. You will receive a notice that you have been sent a GiftRocket and you must redeem it on the GiftRocket website. You will be given three redemption options:

  1. Amazon Gift Card
  2. Bank Transfer
  3. PayPal Transfer

No matter which option you select, the result of GiftRocket gift giving is the same —  the recipient receives cash and the sender gets the choice to “disguise” a cash gift as a new local experience or a gift card to a favorite local store of your choosing.

Why Send a GiftRocket Gift Card?

While many might think GiftRocket customers have some idea of the business or even the exact store that they wish to send a gift card from, some users simply have no idea. This is especially true when buying for a more casual acquaintance. So GiftRocket provides a generic and universal gift card option.

GiftRocket offers a less wasteful gift option as many gift cards go unused because the recipients do not care for the store. And because a majority of “regular” gift cards do not allow for users to get cash back when the card has a minimal balance remaining, GiftRocket ensures no money is wasted.

GiftRocket is also a better choice because it is more secure. Using GiftRocket ensures that a gift recipient your gift is deposited directly into a useful account for you (bank, Paypal, Amazon), while physical gift cards are often misplaced and cash sent via mail can be stolen.

In conclusion, Gift Rocket provides an easy gift giving experience that can be customized for anyone on your gift list.
