What Is A Gift Card?

A gift card is prepaid debit card with a preloaded specific amount for the purchase of items.

Here is How a Gift Card Works

Since gift-cards are prepaid debit cards loaded with funds for future purchases, the two types of gift cards, the open-loop and the closed-loop cards can be used online and in person.

Here are the differences between Open and Closed Loop Gift Cards

Open-loop gift-cards can be used at many merchants, like regular debit cards while closed-loop ones are good at just one retailer.

Please note that closed-loop gift cards are usually not reloadable.

For many gift cards, there is a stipulated minimum and maximum initial loading amount, the usual minimum is $10 and a common maximum is $500.

In some situations, they can be used to pay for a portion of purchase with cash, debit, or credit used to balance the expense.

As a precaution to mitigate the risk of losses, many gift-cards can also be registered online — a strategy that allows the remaining balance to be tracked and frozen if a card is lost.
