PORTLAND, Maine, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, CashStar, the world's leading digital gifting and incentives company, is helping shoppers get a jump on holiday shopping with special offers for personalized eGift Cards from top retailers for a limited time.
According to the National Retail Federation, online holiday sales are expected to increase by 12 percent in 2012, reaching $92-96 billion. eGift Cards are expected to account for a larger portion of this spending than ever before, with more and more consumers making these purchases on their mobile devices because of the ease of sending, instant delivery, and fun personalization options only available with eGift Cards. Reflecting eGift Cards' growth in popularity, CashStar has experienced nearly a 50 percent increase in the number of holiday eGift Card deals over last year.
Shoppers, either at their computers or on-the-go using their mobile devices, can go to their favorite retailer's site to access holiday eGift Card promotions. Consumers can easily personalize their eGift Cards with a custom message and optionally add a photo or video, and set the day the gift should be delivered. There is no shipping time, no shipping cost, and no fee to purchase, unlike plastic cards, making gifting an eco-friendly breeze this holiday season.
