Spending eGifter Points™
Q: Can I spend the points I earn on a purchase -- for the same purchase?
A: Yes, that's the beauty of Instant Points! At checkout for most "Buy for Myself" gift cards, you'll see the points earned on *this* purchase and you can apply them by sliding the toggle switch to the right. The total cost of your checkout will display, reflecting the discount with points applied.
Q: What is the relationship between Points and Dollars?
A: 100 Points is equivalent to $1.00 USD.
Q: How can I view and spend my earned Points?
A: From a logged-in state at eGifter.com, your available Points are always visible in your Account. As points accumulate, you'll be able to apply them to your gift card purchase at Checkout.
Also, Points cannot be combined with an eGifter Choice balance to pay for a gift card at Checkout.
Q: Do Points expire?
A: Points expire 12 months after they are earned. Additionally, eGifter reserves the right to cancel or disable accounts and expire unredeemed Points in those accounts.
