Facebook has introduced a new type of gift card for people to purchase for their friends. The ‘Facebook Card‘, which will roll out gradually across the U.S., is a physical card that enables users to buy gifts from Jamba Juice, Olive Garden, Sephora, and Target stores.
The card, which features ‘Facebook’ on the front instead of a store name, is reusable and supports multiple gift balances. To buy it, simply select a gift from the Gift Cards & Digital category and choose the value you want to spend.
After you complete your purchase, your friend will be instantly notified and will receive the Facebook Card in the mail a few days later. They can then use the card at the retailer you’ve selected for the amount you’ve gifted.
The next time they get a Facebook Card gift, it will instantly be added to the existing card, with each balance dedicated to the retailer associated with the gift. Gift balances can be viewed in your Facebook account settings from a computer or mobile device and Facebook will send out real-time notifications to let you know when your balances change.
