There are a couple things to think about before placing your order:
What stores or restaurants do you frequent often?
You may want to consider ordering a plastic gift card first so you can easily
re-load them in the future.
Groceries. If you regularly shop at Cub Foods, you would want to order a plastic gift card of any denomination. Then going forward, you can reload money on to the card as you need it in $10 increments.
Gas. If you have teenage drivers, you may want to purchase a plastic gift card that can be reloaded like SuperAmerica. As your teen uses the card, you can reload money instantly.
Restaurants: Check the restaurants that you frequent often. Some offer re-loadable gift cards, some have ScripNow (electronic gift cards) and some only offer plastic gift cards. Some restaurant gift cards are usable at a variety of restaurants which allows for flexibility of use.
Remember that re-loadable gift cards can be purchased at the lowest denomination and re-loaded later in your desired increments.
Are you planning a project? Consider purchasing a gift card from Home Depot. Menards, Lowes, etc... to use towards items you need for the project.
Are you going on a vacation? Airlines, Hotels, and Car rentals are on the list of businesses you can use with Scrips
What are some upcoming events where you know you'll be making a purchase?
