When Postal Service Offers Gift Ideas
Customers who are too busy to shop this holiday season — or those who simply waited until the last minute — can send Holiday Greeting Cards and American Express Gift Cards to their family and friends.
There is still time to find the perfect greeting card, add an American Express Gift Card and mail it. With the help of a local Post Office, last-minute holiday shopping lists can be checked off with one convenient stop, suggests the U.S. Postal Service.
This year, the Postal Service is offering 28 individual holiday greeting card designs, 12 holiday boxed greeting card designs and one stationery design — all for sending holiday greetings, letting loved ones know you care or recognizing someone’s special efforts. The greetings cards are available in select Post Offices.[ Also Read: How to Send Free Holiday eGreetings ]
Customers can add a gift card for an extra touch. American Express Gift Cards are sold in 5,000 Post Offices and available in $25 and $50 denominations, or any value between $25 and $100.
Customers can buy up to $500 in American Express Gift Cards per day and funds are available four hours after purchase. Industry standard purchase charges apply.
“For last minute shoppers, we are highlighting the postal products and services that make holidays less stressful, less hectic — and yes, simpler — for our customers,” said Kelly Sigmon, vice president, Channel Access.
“What could be easier than picking up a greeting card, enclosing an American Express Gift card, mailing it off and you’re done,” she said. “You’ve still got time.”
