Gift Certificate FAQ

Purchasing Gift Certificates

Gift Certificates are purchased just like any other item in our store. You can pay for them using the store's standard payment methods. Once purchased the value of the Gift Certificate will be added to your own personal Gift Certificate Account. If you have funds in your Gift Certificate 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 Certificate to some one via email.
 

How to Send Gift Certificates

After you have purchased a gift certificate, you can give the gift certificate as a gift in one of two ways. You can email the gift certificate directly to the recipient or you can print a gift certificate to wrap and give to the recipient.

To email the gift certificate to the recipient:
Click on the Send Gift Certificate button and fill out the form with the recipient's name, email address, amount, and optional message. Be sure to double check the email address for accuracy. Once you click on the Send button, you will have an opportunity to review the information entered. Once you click on the Confirm button, the gift certificate will be emailed to the recipient.

To print a gift certificate to wrap and give to the recipient:
Click on the Send Gift Certificate button and fill out the form with YOUR name, YOUR email address, and amount. Be sure to double check your email address for accuracy. Once you click on the Send button, you will have an opportunity to review the information entered. Once you click on the Confirm button, the gift certificate will be emailed to YOU. In this email you will find a Redemption Code that you can then enter on a printable gift certificate. Download a printable gift certificate here, print this and fill in the fields. Be sure you write down the redemption code correctly on the form. Wrap, give, and enjoy the smile on the recipient"s face when they open it.
 

Buying with Gift Certificates

If you have funds in your Gift Certificate 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 Certificate Account. Please note, you will still have to select another payment method if there is not enough in your Gift Certificate Account to cover the cost of your purchase. If you have more funds in your Gift Certificate Account than the total cost of your purchase the balance will be left in your Gift Certificate Account for the future.
 

Redeeming Gift Certificates

To redeem a Gift Certificate, type in the redemption code and the amount that you would like to use during checkout.  Gift Certificates can only be used for purchases made on The Stamps of Life website and not in person or on club memberships.
