Last Minute Christmas Shopping

Posted by: Jaime Faulkner on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at 12:00:00 am

Are all of your gifts bought and wrapped? If so, Iím impressed!

Generally speaking, I am shopping all the way up to Christmas day. Sometimes itís because I canít decide what to buy and sometimes itís simply because I havenít made enough time to shop. Either way, there have been times Iíve found myself in a bind. Itís Christmas Eve and I finally decide what I want to give, but I canít purchase it before the store closes. So what am I to do?

This year, I started shopping a couple of weeks ago and throughout one of my purchases, I had an experience I couldnít resist sharing with you. Did you know you could use your UChoose Loyalty Reward points for gift cards? Did you know you could get some of those gift cards the same day? Let me share with you about my recent Christmas shopping experience.

I was using my lunch hour to complete some online Christmas shopping.  It just so happened that I could get four different gifts for people on Amazon.com. Once I confirmed my soon to be gifts, I proceeded to checkout.  As I arrived on the page asking for my debit or credit card number, I realized I could get a gift card with my UChoose Loyalty Rewards. It only occurred to me while I was checking out because a day earlier, my coworker said you can get UChoose Loyalty Reward gift cards emailed to you rather than wait the 7-10 days for a plastic gift card to come in the mail.

So I hopped over to the UChoose Loyalty Reward website to purchase a gift card with my points. I found the Amazon gift card, selected the amount I wanted, chose how I would prefer to receive it (mail or email) and added it to my cart.  (Side note: I found in most cases, it was cheaper, less points that is, to choose the email option than the plastic option.) After I confirmed my purchase, I went over to my email and lo and behold, there it was!  I used the gift card immediately and was able to complete my Amazon purchase.

As Christmas is only five days away, I thought you needed to know about this convenience. If youíre anything like me, still sorting out who to buy for and what to get, keep in mind UChoose Loyalty Reward gift cards. You could order it and receive it in less than 15 minutes.
