“I don’t drink, so this wouldn’t do it for me, but I would love to receive an eGift
from one of the other 10 stores,
that are now signed up with eGift Social.
In this day and age, when families and friends are scattered across the country,
eGifting makes perfect sense to me.
It’s a little more personal that just sending cash,
and the recipient can use their
gift at their convenience:-)”

What is First Data’s eGift Social Solution?
eGift Social is a new eGifting technology offered by First Data that provides consumers the ability to quickly and easily send an “item-level gift” (e.g. ice cream, a cup of coffee, sandwich or movie ticket) to a friend or family member. These items move gift giving from “special occasions” to everyday occurrences, helping consumers interact with and show appreciation for friends and family
by giving affordable yet meaningful gifts.
How does eGift Social work?
Consumers access the First Data eGift Social application through the retailer’s Facebook page or web site and select one or multiple friends to send gifts to either by adding them from Facebook or entering their e-mail address. The sender selects which product they would like their friend to receive, adds a personal message, and proceeds through the secure checkout process.
The recipient receives a Facebook message, e-mail or both, with an alert that they have received a gift, the account number and redemption instructions. Visiting any participating retailer location, the recipient redeems the eGift item of their choice by using the account number at the point of sale. Consumers can access the site using either a c
