And with that in mind, we wanted to take the opportunity to emphasize the value of using a gift card registry and thereby supplement the money-saving tips already provided through our recent Best Credit Cards for Recent Graduates and Best Cities for Summer Travel reports. Here are 6 reasons why doing so is great for grads, the newly betrothed, and their wallets!
- The gift giver’s budget won’t be wasted on shipping costs – it’ll all go to you!
- There’s no need to fuss with the details; just pick your favorite stores
- You won’t have to worry about multiple registries either
- You can pool gift cards to buy big-ticket items
- Gift cards can easily be sold for cash
- Gift cards can be bought at a discount
