888GiftCard.com provides a fun cultural twist on the everyday practice of sending a gift card.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 25, 2017
txtMovies, a leader in delivering digital gift cards as a form of customer, volunteer and donor appreciation, announced today the official launch of 888GiftCard.com.
The new website enables users to send gift cards in the amount of $8.88. Chris Ung, cofounder of 888GiftCard.com explains “the number “eight” in Chinese culture is said to be lucky because
it sounds like the word that means “to make a fortune”.
Many Asian people like to be associated with as many eights as possible and believe such an association can bring them good fortune. For example, it is well documented that the opening ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing occurred on August 8 (8/8/08) at 8 minutes past 8pm local time boding well for a successful event.
By sending a gift card in an $8.88 denomination, users are sending a wish of good luck in addition to a gift card. “Receiving a gift card with a special meaning is very unique,” said Chris Ung, txtMovies cofounder, “we’re thrilled to provide a cultural twist on the everyday practice of sending a gift card.”
Launched earlier month, website visitors can send individual gift cards and a custom message from the http://www.888GiftCard.com website in less than 2 minutes using any major credit card. Gift recipients receive an email containing the senders custom message and instructions on how to redeem their gift card.
