New holiday encourages spending

Local News

NATIONAL (WCIA) — It’s not a “Hallmark holiday” but it is a retail revival of sorts. A new holiday, National Use Your Gift Card Day, launches Saturday. It’s to remind consumers to use 2019’s most requested gift before they end up misplaced, forgotten or lost.

Consumers were projected to spend $27.5 billion on gift cards. Retailers and restaurants around the country joined forces with UseYourGiftCard.com to remind consumers of incentives and offer deals to use their cards. Annually, $3 billion in gift cards is left unused.
