Frequently Asked Questions
I just received a GiftYa, how do I use it?
Click on the link in the text or email message you received and follow the instructions to connect your Visa, Mastercard or bank account.* The next time you use your connected card to make a purchase at the selected merchant, your account is automatically credited the gift amount you spend until the GiftYa is used in full. Please allow 3 business days for the credit to appear in your transaction history.*Can also be used like an eGift card for some merchants.
Is a GiftYa the same thing as a gift card?
Connecting a GiftYa to your Visa, Mastercard or bank account lets you automatically get credited the gift amount when you make a purchase - there’s nothing else to remember! We also offer other options like using your gift as an eGift just like you would use a plastic gift card.
How can I check my GiftYa balance?
Simply log in to the GiftYa website or app, and go to the My Account section. Click on My GiftYas to view all your GiftYas and the remaining balances.
What if I do not receive a credit after making a purchase?
Make sure the Visa, Mastercard or debit card connected to your GiftYa is active. If your card has expired, the credit will not be released. After you make a purchase, please allow 3 business days for the GiftYa credit balance to appear on your transaction history. A bank or credit union transaction usually takes 3 business days to complete via the Automated Clearing House network (ACH) used by banks to transfer funds. Please note that transfers may take longer to complete if over a weekend or holiday. If it has been more than 3 business days, please sign in for personalized help on getting your credit.
