If you or your friends have ever shopped at grocery places like Safeway, you will definitely know of its Safeway Gift Cards or have even received one of it. If you like the idea of Gift Cards, you will definitely start to like the concept behind GiftRocket.
Why Gift Cards Can Help Each Other To Save Money
Personally I like the idea behind Gift Cards, which are similar to Gift Vouchers as well. And it is a good way to use this as a form of gifting, without having to feel the awkwardness of giving cash directly.
It is also a good way for each other to save money because your gift card can help the receiving party to buy things that they need without having to pay out of their own pockets. Similarly, for you, you get to gift based on your personal budget and without having to be subjected to paying extra. For example, if you know that your friend is interested in an item that’s like $29 but your budget is like $20… so instead of paying the full $29 for your friend, you can provide a gift card of $20 as a surprise and your friend can jolly well top up the rest to buy what he/she needs.
How GiftRocket Can Help You With Your Idea Of Giving Away Gift Cards
If you are one of those who need to relax and pamper with a bit of holiday towards the end of the year but keen to save a bit of money especially from hotels – have you checked out AirBNB, an online resource for you to check out apartments to rent?
A New Concept Of Saving While Enjoying
I personally like the new concept behind AirBNB because they help most people to save (especially on expensive hotel charges or hotel meals) while still being able to enjoy the holiday.
And there are quite a number of benefits should this concept become popular as well as a norm:
1. You get to make real friends while overseas. Most of the time if you are staying in a hotel, you get to make friends with the Hotel Staffs (and it’s more of business relationship) whereas staying in an rented apartment (especially if the owner is staying there as well) – you get to create a better friendship. Should you decide to go back to the same country to re-create the same memories, you know who you can go to when you are there.
2. You get to save more of everything. The best thing about going on a holiday is the ability to enjoy lots more activities but without having to spend so much. If you are a sociable person and can make friends with anybody, especially the owner of the rented apartment, you can really get more things done and save more money. Once you know how the locals live their daily lifestyle without having to spend so much, this is one good benefit that you need to have.
