If you are racking your brain trying to think of the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, let your sweetheart pick it out using the best gift card yet – the Tango Card! If you haven’t heard of The Tango Card, it’s a versatile gift card where the recipient can select from top-name brands, donate to charity, or even redeem for cash – making it the perfect gift.
Tango Cards work with premiere retailers such as Amazon, SpaFinder, Starbucks, Pottery Barn, and Gap and allows recipients to receive the balance in cash or donate it to non-profits. Habitat for Humanity and the National Park Foundation are just a couple of the nonprofits that Tango Card works with. So for example, imagine you have a $50 Tango Card – you can go spend $30 at Amazon.com, then donate $10 to the USO and then get $10 on a Starbucks card.
I also love that Tango Card makes it easy to manage gift cards on the go thanks to their free mobile app. The app allows recipients to gift card balances in one place and use gift cards from your mobile in-store or online. This is especially useful because in the case of a misplaced card, your Tango Card balances will always be accessible through the app. Tango also provides email alerts to remind you to use your cards so they don’t gather dust like the physical gift cards you’ve probably got in your kitchen junk drawer.
For critics who say that gift cards are impersonal, Tango Card offers a couple of different ways to make them personal for the recipient:
- Create a Tiny Prints personalized greeting card and have a Tango Card printed right inside!
- With ‘What I Got’ (WIG), gift recipients can take a photo of what they bought with their gift card, and then share it directly with the gift giver
