Postage and Packing and Activation Options from TheGiftCardCentre

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm (excludes Bank Holidays when we are closed)

Please note our postage charges include a fee for the credit card, handling, stationary, and the postage. Hopefully more cost effective than going to a store and parking and petrol!

When you checkout, you will be given a choice of your postage options:

Option One and Two: First Class - £2.95 or - 2nd class - £1.95

This is only advisable for your pack of Gift Cards that have a value of below £75 in the pack. This means that if the pack gets lost in the post, you are not insured for a new pack. We will endeavour to assist with lost Gift Cards, but if your card has been used, we will not be able to replace your Gift Card.

If you choose 1st class or Recorded and your total order is for £75 or over, your Gift Gard/s will not be activated. You then need to contact us to activate your Gift Card/s. This can then add an extra two working days before you can use your Gift Card according to some gift card brands but most are live same working day.  Activate by emailing us at [email protected] 

Option Three: Recorded Delivery - £3.95 
Although not insured, at least this is trackable postage. We cannot however replace your card if it has been delivered and a signature received, or if it gets lost in the post and is used.  Pack will need activating if the value is £75 or over [email protected] as per above.

Option Four: Royal Mail Special Delivery - £9.95
Fully insured. If missing, we will replace your pack within five working days. We will not replace your pack if Royal Mail say that it has been delivered and can prove this. This option is not guaranteed next day - but it is usual for your pack to arrive next day, if ordered before 1pm on a weekday. We cannot guarantee this however.  Pack will require activating if £500 or over.  If under £500, it should come live, but some cards may not be live until 48 working hours after delivery.

Please note - we dispatch Monday to Fridays - all orders and activation requests need to be received by 1pm each weekday.  Due to Covid, Royal Mail are warning of packs taking significantly longer to arrive in some areas, so please order early!
