I love, love, love gift cards. 

I love to give them.  They are so nice when you want to get a gift for someone, but you just don’t know what they want.  It’s hard to shop for people!  Gift cards are a way to give them a gift that they want.  Some people look at them as a cop out, but not me.  And you can get gift cards to just about anywhere now! 

I love to get them too.  Cash I just end up spending.  It’s hard to keep it separate.  And when I get gift cards for restaurants and movie theaters, that guarantees me a date night, especially when money is tight and we wouldn’t be able to go out otherwise. 

Do you like gift cards?  Why or why not?

I do like gift cards as long as it's at a store or place I want to shop at (or eat at). I got a gift card for a store off of Foot Hill Blvd. almost near the zoo area and it was a huge inconvenience to go there. Then I couldn't find anything I wanted to use up all the money and I still have a little left on the card which means another trip out there someday.
But yes, a guaranteed date night is always appreciated.

I love them, too, both to give and receive. I'm the same way with cash, it often ends up buying the kids shoes or something practical. Gift cards have to be used at a specific place for something fun!
