We all have that friend/sister/aunt who is impossible to shop for. You know, the one you give a random candle, an "on the way to their holiday party" bottle of wine, or a hastily purchased cookbook. Some people are impossible to shop for. But, just in time for the holiday's IPSY has made it super easy to treat anyone in your life who is beauty or skincare obsessed with minimal effort. Who doesn't want to be the perfect gift giver?
Here are all the details:
IPSY has finally(!) launched gift cards for the holiday season. That’s right—you asked, we listened, and now you can send joy and beauty with an IPSY gift card for one month, two months, or more. Turns out, the best things do come in small packages.
Read on for all you need to know about IPSY gift cards and how to score yours for the holidays.
How can I send an IPSY gift card?
OK, so you’ve got just the person in mind to send an IPSY gift card this year. Here’s how you do it. First, visit IPSY.com/Gifting to purchase a gift card. You’ll choose a gift amount in increments of $20, $50, and $100. If you’d like a higher amount, you can send additional gift cards to increase the total combined value. Then, enter your recipient’s name and email address, and add a personalized message to send with the gift card. Once you place your order, it will be emailed to your recipient shortly after with instructions for redeeming it. You’ll also receive an email confirmation so you know it’s been sent. That’s it!
Plus, for a limited time, when you send an IPSY gift card, you’ll receive a $3 Add-Ons credit for the following month! Add-Ons credit will automatically apply to your account up until the 25th. After the 25th, the credit will apply to the following month.
How do I redeem an IPSY gift card?
If you’re the lucky recipient of an IPSY gift card or you’d like to help someone redeem theirs, here’s how. In the email you received with your gift card, click the “REDEEM MY GIFT” button, and follow the instructions to make your purchase(s). It’s important to note that gift cards must be redeemed for purchases, not cash. Want to wait to start shopping? No problem. Your gift card balance never expires, and it will be applied to your membership and future IPSY purchases until it runs out. After that, we’ll use your payment method on file.
