Design Your Own Card With A Visa® Debit Gift Card

The GiftCards.com™ Visa® Debit Gift Card is a prepaid debit gift card that can be used anywhere Visa® Debit Cards are accepted. The cool thing about this card is that you can design your own card or you can choose from one of the many unique designs they provide. The card works similar to a prepaid card in that each time you use your gift card, the purchase amount is automatically deducted from your balance. You have to keep track of your own balance and you can do so through their website. Gift Card verse Prepaid Card First, it needs to be clear that this is not a prepaid credit card, although it looks like one and in some cases works similar to one. The cards provided by GiftCards.com are prepaid gift cards which are different from prepaid credit cards. The main difference is that the cards can not be reloaded like traditional prepaid cards. There is a fixed amount that is loaded to the card by the purchaser and once the amount on the card is used then the card can not be used again. However, the company does provide reloadable cards to their corporate clients. Another difference with this gift card is that there is an expiration date. You have to use the card before it expires or you lose out on the funds. In the event your gift card is lost or stolen, you should call the company immediately at 1-877-944-3822. They will try to deactivate the lost or stolen card and reissue you another one. Designing Your Card The coolest thing about this card is that you can design your own card. You can add your own picture, logo, design, or whatever you want to the front of the card. You can also create multiple cards using the image of your choice. If you can not come up with your own image then you can choose from one of the hundreds unique predesigned cards they offer. Using The Card The card can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa Debt Cards.
