Redeeming a Gift Card

NOTE: A separate bank account is necessary to store and manage Gift Card funds from the Gift Card purchase. This separate bank account is needed until it has been redeemed and the money can be transferred to the main escrow account to be spent.

 

Step 1: After you have purchased a gift card, the recipient is sent an email or text message with the Sender’s Name, Gift Card Value, and 16-digit Gift Card ID Number.
