Use the GiftYa website or mobile app to buy a GiftYa by entering the recipient's mobile phone number. It only takes minutes to choose a merchant, select an amount, personalize the GiftYa, and decide when you want the recipient to receive the GiftYa.
While you cannot cancel a GiftYa you purchased, if your recipient does not claim the GiftYa you sent by linking it to their debit card within 6 months of receiving it then the full balance will be returned to you as a credit to your GiftYa account. All credits exclude any processing charges, if applicable.
The GiftYa you purchased will be credited back to you in the form of a GiftYa credit if the recipient has not linked their debit card within 6 months of the delivery date. All credits exclude any processing charges, if applicable.
Click on the link in the text message you received and follow the instructions to link the debit card associated with your bank account. The next time you use your debit card at the specified merchant, you will receive a credit on your card for the amount you spent until your GiftYa amount is used in full. Please allow 1-5 business days for the credit to appear in your transaction history.
No. GiftYa works with a company named Plaid to connect your bank account information. Plaid has partnerships with most major financial institutions and powers popular apps such as Venmo. GiftYa does not receive or store your bank credentials or debit card number. We simply connect to Plaid to watch for the transaction at the merchant you received a GiftYa for so your account can be credited.
Simply log in to the GiftYa website or app, and go to the “My Account” section. Click on “Received GiftYas” to view all your GiftYas and the remaining balances. You can also contact Customer Support at (855) 534-5222 and we’ll be happy to look up your GiftYa balance.
If you do not claim your GiftYa by linking it to your debit card within 6 months of receiving it, the full balance will be returned to the giver as a credit to their GiftYa account. Once you have linked your debit card, you have 6 months to use the full GiftYa amount. If there is a remaining GiftYa balance after 6 months, your debit card will be unlinked and the remaining GiftYa balance will be credited to your GiftYa account.
To use GiftYa, you must be in the United States, and have a mobile device capable of accepting SMS messaging. You can create a GiftYa account right here at GiftYa.com, or you can download our app from the App Store or Play Store depending on your device, and create your profile.
