Paper Gift Cards can be used both online and in physical retail locations.
An Electronic Gift Card is a virtual gift card. These are great if you do not want to wait to receive your gift card via mail. When you purchase an Electronic Gift Card, the gift card number and pin (if applicable) will be placed in your GiftCardRescue.com account (under Order History). You will receive an email when the gift card number and pin have been delivered into your account. You will then have to log into your GiftCardRescue.com account to retrieve your card information.
It takes up to 2 business days for the card information to be delivered into your account and may take longer for first time buyers and buyers with large orders. Electronic Gift Cards can only be used online, not in physical retail locations.
Note: We cannot accept returns for electronic gift cards.
