An Electronic Gift Cards Primer
Posted by Jared Flood on
Looking for a special gift for the knitter in your life? Or maybe you are the knitter and want to add something special to your holiday wish list? Brooklyn Tweed offers electronic gift cards that can be used for anything in the Brooklyn Tweed webstore. From yarn to printed books to digital patterns, shade cards, knitting kits, and more, our electronic gift cards can be used as the recipient wishes and do not expire. Here’s a quick how-to on how to purchase an electronic gift card through the Brooklyn Tweed webstore. (Knitters who wish to receive such a gift might consider forwarding this post to their favorite people, hint hint.) Please note: Electronic gift cards are sent immediately to the recipient after purchase, so consider the timing of your purchase if you wish the gift to be made at a particular time. Also, it is very important that the recipient’s email address be entered in the appropriate box on the checkout form, in order for the recipient to be able to use the gift card. Ready to purchase an electronic gift card? Let’s go! Gift cards are available in pre-set amounts ranging from $25 to $200. From the electronic gift card page, select your purchase amount and then click “Add to Cart.” The following page will allow you to update your cart, continue shopping, or proceed to checkout. When you are ready to check out, select “Proceed to Checkout.” If you yourself are already registered with an account through www.brooklyntweed.com, select “Returning customer? Click here to login” and enter your Brooklyn Tweed username/email address and password to log into your Brooklyn Tweed account. Don’t have a Brooklyn Tweed account? No worries, just enter your billing details as requested and then enter an account password (passwords should be a minimum seven characters with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols; an account is created so that we can look up your order details in the future if needed). Once you have either logged in to your existing Brooklyn Tweed account or entered your billing information and new password, you will see the following box: Assuming you are purchasing the electronic gift card for someone else, select “Gift Coupon to Someone Else,” enter the recipient’s email address, and include any message you wish to appear in the email that will be sent to the recipient announcing the gift card. (If you select “Send Coupon to Me,” the gift card will become associated with your email address, not that of the intended recipient, and the recipient will need to contact our Customer Service department to straighten out the email address associated with the coupon code. This can be avoided by entering the recipient’s email address from the start.) Once you have entered your payment information and completed your purchase, you will receive a receipt by email and the recipient will receive an email announcing your gift along with a unique coupon code for store credit to the Brooklyn Tweed webstore. (Again, electronic gift cards are sent immediately to the recipient after purchase, so consider the timing of your purchase if you wish the gift to be made at a particular time.) This credit will never expire and can be split over multiple orders. Ta-da -- that’s it! Thank you for your electronic gift card purchase -- we hope the process was easy and that your intended giftee will be delighted to receive a credit to the Brooklyn Tweed webstore. Questions?
