Holiday Gift Guide: Visa Gift Card Holiday Guide + $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!


With Christmas just around the corner I have been out doing a lot of Christmas shopping. We have a lot of people to shop for, but I most definitely don't want to go into debt to buy gifts. So my husband and I each year will set up a budget and stick to it. This year we have been thinking about maybe buying some Visa gift cards but I have always been tentative about buying them because I'm just not sure how that works. Fortunately, this year Visa has come up with a Holiday Gift Card Guide website which contains a number of helpful resources such as:

-Tips for giving and receiving a Visa Gift Card
-Holiday Budgeting Insights
-A fun, interactive quiz that asks "What kind of holiday shopper are you?"

 
This website answers all of my questions and definitely makes me feel more comfortable giving and receiving Visa Gift Cards. I loved the tips and I especially loved the "What kind of holiday shopper are you?"quiz. I took the quiz and I am a Gift Giving Guru! Here is what is says about the kind of holiday shopper I am:

Well done, Guru! You have mastered the holiday shopping season. Every year you make your shopping list, check it twice, and have everything wrapped ahead of time.

Holiday Gift Giving Tips for Gurus:

We know you take a lot of pride in giving the perfect gift, so you should know that getting the people on your list exactly what they want might be easier than you think! According to the 2011 Visa Gift Giving Survey, 78 percent of survey respondents said they would rather receive a Visa Gift card over a gift card for a specific store or restaurant this holiday season.
Visa Gift Cards would make great gifts this year and according to the 2011 Visa Gift Giving Survey, 78 percent of survey respondents said they would rather a Visa Gift card over a gift card for a specific place. I agree, I would definitely love a Visa Gift Card for Christmas. So if you are thinking about purchasing a Visa Gift Card, be sure to check out the Visa Gift Card Holiday Guide.
