An Interview with Discount Gift Cards
If Plastic Jungle discount gift cards had a voice, what kind of stories do you think they would tell?
Inspired by Marcel the Shell with Shoes On by Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, imagine what it would be like to interview Plastic Jungle gift cards…
How do gift cards end up at Plastic Jungle?
Many of us were first purchased at a specific store as a gift for a birthday, wedding, or special occasion. Others of us were bought from a gift card display at a grocery store, pharmacy, or discount retailer – like WalMart or Target. We were stored away into a gift card holder, gift card card, or small gift card box until we were eventually given away. While most of us received a smile when we were unwrapped, we never ended up being put to use. For months, we ended up living inside a warm pocket or a cute purse until one day we were shipped to Plastic Jungle.
What are your dreams?
We want to be used to our full potential. A few us were partially used and then sent to Plastic Jungle while others of us have been carrying around the same balance for months. We all just want to help someone make a purchase so that they can be happy.
How does it feel to be called “discount” gift cards?
Frankly, it is an honor. When we were all sold as regular gift cards, we were neglected and under-utilized. As a discount gift card we are all more likely to be bought and put to use. It’s great being a discount gift card because we get to help people make a purchase and we get to help them save money. It’s like we make them double-happy.
If you could meet anyone who would it be?
Oou! Hands down, we would all love to meet a coupon. Coupons are our envy because coupons were created to bring discounts to people. We bring discounts to people because our original owner could not find a purpose for us.
Do you want to say anything to our readers?
If you have unused gift cards hanging around your home or in your car, please sell them to Plastic Jungle so they can be given a second chance to live out their dream.
