WHICH GIFT CARD HAS THE HIGHEST RATE: One of the best gifts that technology has given the world is gift cards. Before now, the only payment methods we knew were cash, cheque, or credit/debit cards. These means of payments had their shortcomings, and gift cards resolved most of them.

Gift cards are an alternative means of payment. They are debit cards that have been preloaded with funds and are issued by retail stores to their customers based on orders. Gift cards can also serve as a gift to our friends and loved ones. If your relatives abroad sent you a gift card for Christmas, then they have done well.
