Gift Cards FAQ
Purchasing Gift Cards
Gift Cards are purchased just like any other item in our store. You can pay for them using the stores standard payment method(s). Once purchased the value of the Gift Card will be added to your own personal Gift Card Account. If you have funds in your Gift Card Account, you will notice that the amount now shows in the Shopping Cart box, and also provides a link to a page where you can send the Gift Card to some one via email.
How to send Gift Cards
To send a Gift Card you need to go to our Send Gift Card Page. You can find the link to this page in the Shopping Cart Box in the right hand column of each page. When you send a Gift Card, you need to specify the following.
The name of the person you are sending the Gift Card to. The email address of the person you are sending the Gift Card to. The amount you want to send. (Note you don't have to send the full amount that is in your Gift Card Account.) A short message which will appear in the email. Please ensure that you have entered all of the information correctly, although you will be given the opportunity to change this as much as you want before the email is actually sent.
Buying with Gift Cards
If you have funds in your Gift Card Account, you can use those funds to purchase other items in our store. At the checkout stage, an extra box will appear. Enter the amount to apply from the funds in your Gift Card Account. Please note, you will still have to select another payment method if there is not enough in your Gift Card Account to cover the cost of your purchase. If you have more funds in your Gift Card Account than the total cost of your purchase the balance will be left in your Gift Card Account for the future.
Redeeming Gift Cards
If you receive a Gift Card by email it will contain details of who sent you the Gift Card, along with possibly a short message from them. The email will also contain the Gift Card Redemption Code. It is probably a good idea to print out this email for future reference. You can now redeem the Gift Card in two ways.
1. By clicking on the link contained within the email for this express purpose. This will take you to the store's Redeem Gift Card page. You will then be requested to create an account, before the Gift Card is validated and placed in your Gift Card Account ready for you to spend it on whatever you want.
2. During the checkout process, on the same page that you select a payment method there will be a box to enter a Redemption Code. Enter the Redemption Code here, and click the Redeem button. The code will be validated and the amount added to your Gift Card Account. You can then use the amount to purchase any item from our store
