Giving these gift cards via text is something we have done a number of times. The kids we sent them too really enjoyed them. Adults too! During COVID-19, our friends had virtual Zoom parties and this was a fun way to send a gift to the parents phone for their child to enjoy. The animation is fun and enjoyable for the person receiving the gift card. The child can search for a gift for themselves on Amazon and wait with anticipation for the gift to arrive. The card is delivered in seconds to the recipient. The only thing is that a text needs to be sent to tell the recipient to be on the lookout for a text from Amazon so they don’t think it is a stranger texting them. We have sent them to adult friends and with out the text some people did not pay attention. We really love this option for gift giving.
