Apple Store Gift Cards are issued and managed by Apple Distribution International and can be applied only to purchases in the United Kingdom from an Apple Retail Store, the Apple Online Store or by calling 0800 048 0408. Gift cards may not be redeemed at the iTunes Store, at Apple resellers, for cash (except as required by law) or for shipments outside the United Kingdom. Gift cards will remain active even if added to the Wallet app on your iOS device. Neither the issuer nor Apple is responsible for any lost or stolen gift cards or use without your permission. Keep them safe; they’re valuable and can be redeemed by whoever finds them. Gift cards are also not for resale. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Gift card terms and conditions are subject to change without notice and some items may not be available for purchase. Please visit apple.com/go/agc for current terms, conditions and limitations. Use of a gift card is governed by English law. To check the available balance on a gift card, call 0800 048 0408 or visit apple.com/go/gcb/uk.

Gift cards are credit card sized plastic cards that have a stored value of money pre-loaded on to them. There are two main types of gift card; single branded gift cards can be spent in only one chain of stores and multi retail gift cards can be spent in multiple participating stores. Some gift cards can also be redeemed online using a code printed on the card. Gift cards are a popular gift in the UK due to the ease of use and the choice they give to the user.
However, this isn't guaranteed to work as there's no set rule on whether the law covers gift cards. Also, Section 75 only applies to single items worth over £100, so you aren't covered if you bought multiple gift cards for smaller amounts, regardless of the total cost. See our Section 75 guide for more info (and be aware you may need the gift giver to claim for you as they're the one who paid).

If you have to return goods you have purchased online using gift vouchers, then in most instances we will credit your online shopping account. You may also return online orders to any John Lewis & Partners shop. If you have your receipt, we will refund you with cash, but if you don’t, your refund will be credited to a gift card. This doesn't affect your statutory rights.
The first giftcard using a payments infrastructure was introduced by Neiman Marcus in late 1994,[6] though Blockbuster Entertainment was the first company to do so at a wide scale,[7] test-marketing them in 1995 and launching them around the country the next year. In the beginning, the Blockbuster giftcard replaced gift certificates that were being counterfeited with recently introduced color copiers and color printers. Blockbuster's first giftcard transactions were processed by what was then Nabanco of Sunrise, Florida. Nabanco was the developer of the first third-party platform for the processing of giftcards using existing payment infrastructure.

Target is my life. No for real, I do not think I could survive without my weekly trips there. You will probably be creating a baby registry here anyways, but if that was not in your plans you should highly consider it because when you sign up you qualify for a Baby Welcome Kit. It’s a box you will go pick up from your local Target full of samples and up to $50 worth of coupons. Moms say they’ve received everything from wipes to breast pads in theirs.
Gift cards differ from gift certificates, in that the latter are usually sold as a paper document with an authorized signature by a restaurant, store, or other individual establishment as a voucher for a future service; there is no electronic authorization. A gift certificate may or may not have an expiration date and generally has no administrative fees.

Try the 'one up, one down' hack. This one is a lifesaver and perfect for cooler months. In breastfeeding parlance, 'one up, one down' is when you wear a strappy vest under a normal t-shirt, top or sweater. You can then pull up the top, and whip down the vest for easy access without exposing your tummy. No need for specialist nursing vests with clips – many people just buy cheap stretchy vests (I like Primark's) and pull the front down.
Gift vouchers (sometimes known as gift tokens) are printed paper gifts available in pre-determined values that can be spent in specific stores. They can be single brand gift vouchers or multi-retailer gift vouchers. Multi-retailer gift vouchers have the additional benefit of being redeemable in more than one store or brand. Gift vouchers and multi-retailer Gift vouchers can be used as full or part payment of items at the checkout of participating stores and are often used as an alternative to cash.

Call (888) 215-4327 to cancel. It is so worth it the hassle because good hardcover books are so difficult to find and babies absolutely love them. Here’s the link!
