I had really thought I was done with school shopping for my 16 year old. Wasn’t it just last month when I spent a fortune on new school clothes? But the very first day there was a chill in the air, I was hit with a barrage of texts to inform me of what she needed…IMMEDIATELY.

Our friends at Yahoo published an interesting post today that we want to share.
Young folks have found a new use for refillable gift cards. They are buying them for themselves.
A new report issued this week by analyst firm Mercator Advisory Group found a big jump in purchase of these “retailer-specific” cards among millennials.
“Nearly 3-in-5 young adult respondents indicated they bought them during the previous year, up from less than half of young adults who did so in the 2015 survey,” the report said.
The intermingling of these gift cards and apps seems to be behind the trend.
Increases in overall retail refillable gift card sales were particularly sharp in the 18- to 24-year-old age range, which saw an increase from 44% to 53%; and among those ages 25 to 34, which jumped from 48% to 57%. The rise is even more dramatic when a three-year trend is considered — among the 18- to 34-year-old set, the jump was from 39% to 57% from 2013 to 2016. During that same stretch, gift card sales actually dropped among those over age 65, and were nearly flat for 35- to 64-year-olds.
Why the increase among young people? Gift cards aren’t just for gifts anymore. Young folks are loading gift cards onto retailer apps, and using the money on themselves, said report author Karen Augustine. “Retailers are introducing more mobile-based apps and offers when using their loyalty and prepaid programs, which may be fueling this growth in retailer gift card purchases,” Augustine said. “Young adults continue to lead this mobile revolution and growing use of prepaid cards as a money management tool.”
As a leader in the retail gift card industry, eGifter sees this type of activity every day. Our customers buy our gift cards, earn points from our Insiders Rewards Club Program for discounts, and then use those cards to pay for their purchases in the store or online. It’s a genius way to stack savings!

As we’ve all experienced, computers, mobile phones, and tablets have changed entertainment forever.
And the way we use gift cards has transformed how consumers pay and interact with their music, games, movies, using eGift cards from companies like eGifter via a desktop or mobile device.
The variety of cards is wide and continues to grow. Parents can fund cards to keep an eye on spending and content. A business can use the gift cards to reward employees with incentives. And more traditionally, gifting is made easier by sending a personalized gift to a friend with a quick click.
The role of eGift Cards in the Entertainment category continues to evolve. Looking forward to see where it takes us in the next few years.
I hear this all the time from people—“I didn’t know you can add physical gift cards to the eGifter App!” Absolutely! It’s one of the major benefits of using an online gift card app like eGifter. Loading your cards completely lightens the load. No more worrying about a deck of new and used plastic cards when you hit the mall to go shopping. There’s also way less chance they will be lost or forgotten. Upload your loyalty cards too—you know the ones that hang on your keychain. The ones that you hope are attached when you need them most.
When it comes to gift cards and loyalty cards, I suggest lightening the load and saving a headache or two and putting all of your gift cards in the eGifter Mobile Wallet.
And…..the smart ones know exactly where to get the most reward points! As it turns out, this age group especially loves eGifter.

Electronic gift cards are easier and quicker to buy, deliver and redeem. Gift cards from eGifter provides the ability to add personalized messages, images and video making the customer experience perfect for this market segment. All of the gift cards can be stored on a mobile device—no more leaving the card on the kitchen table or in the drawer of the nightstand. And perhaps even more importantly, digital gift cards cannot be lost like a plastic card—a huge benefit in busy, often chaotic lives.
