DALLAS, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wouldn't it be nice to ease the holiday gifting frenzy for friends and family? To help take the hassle out of shopping, Red Mango, the 2011 #1 Zagat-rated frozen yogurt and smoothie chain in America, today announced the new Red Mango eGift Card to make it "virtually" easy. According to the National Retail Federation's 2012 Holiday Consumer Spending Survey, six in ten people would most like to receive a gift card as a gift this holiday season. With that growing trend combined with today's mobile world, Red Mango came up with the top five benefits of "eGifting" this year.
- Shop from the comfort of a mobile device or computer eliminating long check-out lines.
- Deliver it directly into someone's email immediately or schedule it for a specific day and time.
- No shipping costs or wrapping needed – saving time and money.
- Include a personalized message up to 200 characters.
- Easy and convenient especially for busy, last-minute gift givers.
"People use their phones and computers for almost everything these days so a virtual gift card is the perfect option for gift giving," said Dan Kim, Founder and Chief Concept Officer of Red Mango, Inc. "The new Red Mango eGift Card is a great gift idea for those who enjoy treating themselves to something healthy and delicious throughout the year."
The Red Mango eGift Card not only eliminates the need to pack the wallet with yet another plastic card, it's also easy to track simply by registering it online. It can be used to purchase Red Mango products such as delicious frozen yogurt and fresh fruit smoothies…just open it up on a mobile device at check-out. The eGift Cards can be purchased in any denomination starting from $5 to $100 on the Red Mango website at http://giftredmango.com. As part of the company's holiday Share the Love campaign, when someone purchases at least $25 in Red Mango gift cards, they will receive a free complimentary card for themselves, up to $5 in value.
Also, in the spirit of the holidays, Red Mango announces seasonal flavors including frozen yogurt in Spiced Brown Sugar, Cinnamon Apple Pie (also available as a Dream Shake), and in certain locations Winter Peppermint.
