Physical gift cards can be used by children and adults alike.
However, what we have online is mostly virtual/digital gift codes, often referred to as gift cards.
Some gift codes can actually be printed out and taken to the store and applied to purchases.
Others are mostly utilized online. Most famous is walmart and amazon.
I purchase products often at both Walmart and amazon. I am going to make those purchases
anyway whether I have a gift code or not. I am certainly not the only one as shopping online
is very BIG business and each year it increases.
It may save people not only time but also money.
There are several items I frequently buy online that saves me time and money.
I don't need to leave my house to buy dog food, toilet paper, and other daily necessities. I
save money on some of those products because they are cheaper online. I make money
on some of those products because I go through one or more cash back programs.
There's nothing wrong with getting cash and no one says there is. There's also nothing
wrong with getting gift cards/codes and I don't why anyone would say there is.
I've received over $40,000 in cash back since I have been online. Call me a child if
you want, I happen to know what I am doing.
