Below are our guidelines for gift card order shipping:

•No gift card orders go regular mail

•1-3 cards can go certified unless UPS is requested- Cost = $5.00 (based on weight)

•UPS is the standard $12.00 charge

•UPS Overnight is $25.00

How would I purchase a large amount of gift cards?

Any amount of cards can be purchased at store level, however, because of the time it takes to activate cards at store level, customers may find it more convenient to place larger orders through the corporate headquarters. Also, for orders of $1,000 or more, a corporate discount of 6% will apply, if purchased from the corporate headquarters.

Please note: The 6% discount will be applied to orders of $1,000 or more and will be available for businesses purchasing for sales incentives and associate rewards/gifts only. Our gift cards will not be sold for personal use or for resale.
