Give the gift of choice
Looking for a way to give money that is more convenient and safer than giving cash? At the same time, more widely accepted and versatile than 'store' gift cards and vouchers?
MasterCard has the answer for you: prepaid gift cards.
Prepaid gift cards offer you an easier way to give a monetary gift. Whereas a gift voucher or traditional gift card is often tied to a particular retailer or shopping centre, a MasterCard or Maestro prepaid gift card can be used at millions of retail locations worldwide! Plus, the person you give the card to can use it to buy a gift of his or her choice.
Most of the MasterCard or Maestro prepaid gift cards you will see are instantly available, but they can be loaded with money only once. The advantage of this is that the person buying the card doesn't need to have a bank account or present any identification documents at the time of purchase.
