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.
Neiman Marcus and Blockbuster were later followed by the Mobil gas card which initially offered prepaid phone value provided by MCI. Kmart was next with the introduction of the Kmart Cash Card which in the early generations provided prepaid phone time with AT&T. Later this feature was dropped as it was not profitable for both Kmart and Mobil. The Kmart Mags Pangilinan Cash Card was the first replacement for cash returns when a shopper did not have a receipt for a gift. This practice of giving a cash card in place of cash for non-receipted returns is common place today with most merchants. From these early introductions, other retailers began to adapt a giftcard program to replace their gift certificate programs.
