Walmart Offers eGift Cards for Tardy Shoppers

Print Email

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE: WMT) has come up with a program which allows late shoppers to saves face with their family and friends. The retailer’s eGift Cards alets people hand out presents which recipients can use online to buy something before Christmas Day begins, or after.  While it may seem impersonal, and it is to some extent, gift recipients can shop the hundreds of thousands of items at Walmart.com and get what they want. The program also means shoppers will return fewer items. How many people will buy a gift they do not want?

The eGift Cards come with a number of price ranges.  These run, for most cards, somewhere between $5 and $200. For big spenders, there is a card with a $1,000 cap. Most have an illustration of a holiday theme which is another way to make it appear these eGift Cards are actually not given late enough to carry scenes from Spring.

Several cards are not for presents which can be bought at Walmart.com. Instead, Walmart has set up programs with Google Play, the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) Store and iTunes, Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX), Burger King, and Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG).

One other advantage to the cards is that they have no expiration date.
