Quick Tip Tuesday: Gift Card Balance

Gift cards front

Gift cards are the number one gift given for birthdays and Christmas. If you don’t use the gift card all at one time, how do you keep track of the balance? For example, I have been given gift cards that are used like credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and American Express gift cards). With those types of cards, if you don’t know the balance, the card will be declined if the cashier attempts to charge over the amount on the card. To keep track:

1) Write the balance on the back of the card immediately after you use it,


2) Fold the receipt around the card.

Next time you use it, you’ll know exactly what’s available! Happy shopping!
