The thought that counts!
From the makers of Giftcards.com, gift sharing has been reinvented to be easier, more personalized, and more thoughtful than ever before! Introducing giftya, the gifting app that allows you to send a gift card in a new way. Gift card apps similar to giftya often involve buying gift cards that either don’t work or never get sent to the right email. We’ve ensured these annoying problems don’t happen (and never do again!).
With giftya, you simply connect your credit/debit card and send gift cards (a giftya) to your friends and family through text. Unlike email, which can lead to mistaken identity in delivery, phone numbers are very difficult to get wrong. Once you send someone a giftya, they can link it to their credit/debit card in seconds. Once someone purchases with the card they’ve linked, giftya credits their account until they’ve spent the total amount in their giftya virtual wallet.
The best part? With this method, a giftya is usable at ANY business. Now, gift cards aren’t just acceptable at major chains; you can send giftcards for Starbucks or to the small cafe down the road. It’s even more widely accepted than a visa gift card!
It’s the thought that counts. Before, people only bought gift cards for holidays, birthdays, or other special occasions. Now, you can send a giftya for as little as $5. Know someone going for a job interview, send them a $5 giftya for a cup of coffee with a personalized Good Luck message. It can be used as a simple gift for graduation. Congratulate that new grad with a quick giftya for [something clever].
Giftya does more than just make your e gift card experience easier. It also makes it more meaningful. When you send someone a giftya, you can make it a personalized photo gift by including a photo significant to the two of you. Or, send a video with a personalized message that shows how much you care.
HOW IT WORKS:
• Sending a giftya
Choose from almost any merchant, anywhere, select the amount you want to give, personalize your giftya with a photo or video and send it to your recipient’s phone within seconds.
• Receiving a giftya
Link the giftya you received to your credit or debit card in seconds, make a purchase as you normally would and your account is credited the amount you spend until the giftya is used in full.
FEATURES:• Thoughtful gift experience
Giftya uses the technology that’s part of our everyday lives to send meaningful, personalized gifts in the moment.
• No more unused gift cards
$1 billion in gift cards go unused every year. Giftya fixes that by linking the gift to the recipient’s credit or debit card so the gift can’t be lost and doesn’t go unused.

Ratings and Reviews
You just have to try it once and you’ll be hooked. It’s so simple. I was guided through a few easy steps and quickly ready to gift my friends. I knew my daughter was having a crazy day and sent her a GiftYa for a coffee at her coffee shop. How cool? An instant gift right when she needed it. All she had to do was swipe her card - credit applied quickly - coffee enjoyed!
Do not use.
The worst app ever. I had received my bday gift for a restaurant in the area and when friend and I went over, the staff at the restaurant wasn’t able to get it to scan, so we followed the app instructions and linked this gift card to a master card. I happened to leave my wallet in the car so we thought not a biggie let’s use her card, ya think?! So the linking was successful and we paid the bill, the balance on the gift card showed $0, we thought okay not bad, tipped our waiter to compensate for all the hustle she did trying to get this thing to work.
Few days later my friend informed me the charge did not go through, I go back to the account it shows my original gift balance, but now there is no option to link your cc account to the card, they had removed but forgot to update that in their FAQ as it is still there under the e gift card. So I engage with the customer service and send pictures or screen shots of when money was spent as we had issues with it and I happened to take the pic at that time showing 0 balance, and I sent the pic of what it look like as of today. The customer service is constantly telling me the money is there and that is not what it should be. The money was already spent and not trying to use it again or spend it again. The worst. Not again. Advising strongly against using this business.
Give my mom back her money
My mom thought she was sending me an e gift card not understanding how this company operates… so I get a text with a link that doesn’t work. Now I have no gift card and my mom has 50 bucks less.
Why on earth would anyone think that sending someone a “gift” that requires the person receiving the gift to link their personal bank account info in order to use it is some kind of miracle app is beyond me.
I hope my mom can get her money back. And I hope these companies can be a little more transparent online so people understand what’s happening with their money.
Companies like this are just legitimized scams.
