Western Unions New Personalized Gift Cards

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Western Union for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the most popular gifts that I think that is universal for anyone anywhere is the gift card. My family always asks before the holidays, especially for the kids, “what do you want this year?” We always have to tell them, “we will think about it.” So what many of them do is just get a gift card and tell us to just go and get what we want.

This is great for me and my kids. We can use it for whatever we need or want, and the kids can use it for their wants, while not having to worry about losing their cash or cashing a check. It is also great for those students off at college who need help from time to time and to just congratulate them for good grades!

Western Union has created the Western Union gift card and greeting card to make the gift of giving a gift card easier and more personal. Not only can they be purchased online at WUGift.com, but they can be loaded with any amount ranging from $5 to $100. Then they can be sent to the recipient making it easy since our family is all over the country. And to make it even more personalized, a personal message can be recorded to play when the card is activated over the phone.

And giftcards are not just for birthdays and holidays. They can be given for a variety of occasions like anniversaries, congratulations, thank-you’s and more. Thinking about it, this would be a great idea for that special one to get that pedicure or message! Wink wink, honey!

Western Union is currently running a promotion for 25% off the $5 fee which is valid through 9/1/12 when purchased at wugift.com. Enter the special promotion code “WUGIFTPROMO7” when buying your card for that discount.

The gift card can be used wherever debit MasterCard is accepted making it easy to shop online or in store! And it is easy to activate and checking the balance online making the Western Union gift card convenient. Shipping is FREE via first class shipping and if you call 1-866-953-6490, you can record a FREE personal voice message to be played upon activation.

Just make sure to use the card at least every 12 months or there is a $2.50 inactivity fee. The gift card is only available in the 48 contiguous states and excludes AZ, PO Boxes, U.S. military bases and correctional facilities.
