Do Gift Cards Make Sense When So Many Go Unused?
Apparently, according to the article from ‘Time – Business and Money‘ retailers love it when you buy gift cards ,because millions of them are not cashed in. Its what you call’Money For Nothing’.
Christmas time is probably a time which is the worst as how many get lost amongst the wrapping and get thrown out. Me personally – love them. As For some, it seems like a gift with not much thought or love attached and kinda gets disregarded.

Anyway it is a good article and well worth the read
