8 things you need to know about electronic gift cards before investing in one

The season of gifting is upon us, and as much as we’d all like to believe, there are times when we just can’t seem to figure out what’s best for our loved ones. However, sometimes the best present is to give them the liberty to choose the gift of their choice. For times like these, an electronic gift card or e gift card helps you and your special ones narrow down the budget and effortlessly pick the gift of their choice. That said, there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to gifting a voucher or an e gift card. But worry not; we answer some of the most commonly asked questions around electronic gift cards.

Gifting an e gift card: What's there to know?

Gift cards are available both online on Croma.com and offline at a Croma store near you. All you have to do is enter the value of your choice and address it to the receiver. You can either choose to purchase a physical copy or email them if they’re located far away. Here are some other crucial details to know before you purchase one: 

What is a gift card used for?

A gift card or an e gift card, can be sent to your loved ones with the preferred price range for them to purchase the product from a Croma store. Based on the value and validity period, the receiver can choose to spend the voucher on a product of their choice.

What is the benefit of having a gift card?

Giving someone a gift card rules out the possibility of choosing the wrong gift and gives the receiver additional options of products to pick from for themselves. It also allows a flexible time frame for your loved ones and lets them purchase based on their comfort and need.

Additionally, receivers can add an extra amount in case they wish to invest in a gift larger than the e card amount.
