Texas Startup Aims to Optimize Gift Giving

Have you ever forgotten to buy a birthday or Christmas gift? You’re on your way to the party, late, and don’t have anything to offer in return for the food and friendship. Don’t worry, from now on CardNow has you covered. Gift cards are a great way to give presents to even the pickiest of people. And with the increase in online shopping during the pandemic, the Texas startup aims to make digital gift giving easy, accessible, and efficient.

With CardNow you can purchase a box of inactive, unloaded gift cards to over 50 brands and restaurants, including Amazon, American Eagle, and even Doordash. The cards can be loaded and activated on-demand through the CardNow mobile app. No more waiting in line to purchase and load a card. CardNow’s innovative gift card system is not only useful for individuals, but for companies as well. Companies often use gift cards as employee incentives, contest prizes, gifts to loyal customers, or as apologies for mistakes. With CardNow, companies can have gift cards on hand for any reason. Never find yourself in a pickle for a present ever again.
