Your loved one is also much more likely to have their phone on them than a gift card if you are sending on e for a birthday or celebration to a younger relative, You can count on kids and college students to always have their phones on them, but can you really count on them to have a gift card you send them. 

Not to mention their digital format makes GiftYa perfect anytime you want to send a gift card with a large sum to a loved one in CITY *wink wink*. With a GiftYa there’s no writing multiple balances all over a card and hoping you can keep it organized. You also don’t have to worry about the card being lost or stolen with a GiftYa. You can keep track of them all digitally. So you don’t even have to deliver them in person to know they got there in time. There’s no relying on the Postal Service and hoping they don’t lose it or delay it before your loved ones' big day or celebration. And I’m sure you’ve noticed more and more restaurants going with digital menus and options. Don’t be embarrassed at a modern 21st Century establishment by handing over a clunky plastic gift card when you can upgrade to a sleek digital format today.
