Gift card schemes

Gift card schemes

You can ask family, friends or neighbours to help with your shopping. Gift card schemes are a way for others to pay for shopping online or in store for you. Depending on the scheme, the gift card can be posted or emailed to you or the person you have chosen to help you. You will need to have the email address for the person who is helping you if you want the e-gift card to be sent directly to them.
