Apple iPad Gift Cards

This Is One Gift Card I Wouldn't Mind Receiving

Generally, I'm not a gift card fan. Charitable donations aside, purchasing one always seems like a cop out, and when I receive one, I have to remind myself to use it before the value starts depreciating. (Seriously, how fair is that?) But, in the spirit of the holiday season, Apple is offering gift cards for the iPad. The cards themselves look the same; it's just the envelope they come in that calls out its intended use.

While unwrapping an iPad gift card may not carry the same amount of excitement as unwrapping an actual iPad, it's a great alternative for people who are traveling with gifts, or simply don't want the responsibility that comes with toting an expensive and sought-after piece of tech. (Remember that time one iPad buyer lost his finger in an iPad theft?) Find out more about the cards when you read more.

The cards are also notable because they provide a new way for people to purchase the device, which was initially only available via credit or debit card — even cash wasn't good enough. You can pick up an Apple iPad gift card at any Apple Store.

Side note: did you know you can load an Apple gift card with up to $5,000? That would be one serious Christmas gift.

Regarding gift cards depreciating...thanks to new laws that went into effect this year, gift cards are not allowed to expire in less than five years and they can't start depreciating from non-use fees until after a year of non-use. The best thing about the new laws is that fees and expiration must be clearly stated on the card--so just read the back of the card before you buy to be sure.
