    Hey @lynda - I've printed Indigo gift cards and exchanged in-store without any issue.

  • Lynda Jackson about 1 year ago

    if I buy Indigo egiftcards can I take that into a store to purchase a plastic gift card? sometime people would prefer giving a coloured gift card in an envelope vs. an ecard.

  • JP - FlipGive HQ about 1 year ago

    Yes, it does (for now), Judy.

    Does Walmart shopping have to be online shopping?
