155,551 Gift Cards on Colnect

Gift cards catalog on Colnect now shows over 155,551 gift cards. A big thank you to everyone who contributed. Special thanks to the coordinator of this category, Claude Martin [Claude], for taking such good care of it.



A gift card is a prepaid card which is commonly used for purchasing things from specific shops. In 1994 Blockbuster Entertainment issued the first gift card in Florida. Over years popularity skyrocketed and in 2006, gifts cards were second-most given gifts, most wanted gifts by women, and third-most wanted by men in the US. On Colnect there are already more than 5,000 different companies listed which have issued gift cards over the years.



Gift cards are very similar to prepaid debit cards. What is the difference between them? Unlike a prepaid debit card, gift card is not identified with a name but rather with a specific number or code so it can used by anyone. Usually the value of a gift card is kept in the database of a store and is connected to its code.
