For some reason this struck me as a little “cheap“, and I’m not referring to the price.
Wal-Mart.com is currently selling a Gift Card with that value of $249.24 (the price of a Nintendo Wii) - in hopes that parents will buy the gift card to give to their children for the Holidays.
“Merry Christmas little Joey, technically we bought you a Nintendo Wii… but you just have to find one for yourself - it’s like 2 gifts in one! A Wii and a scavenger hunt!”
Personally, I think that any kid would be let down to get this… I mean they would get what it stood for. Correct me if I’m wrong, but does any kid really want to open up a gift card on Christmas morning?
Alright, let’s say a kid gets the Wii gift card for $250, pretty much the choice is wait for the Wii … or get a new bike and a whole buggy load full of toys? If I was a kid, the choice would be a no brainier.
What do you guys think of this?
EDIT: Of course Wal-Mart isn’t just selling this gift card for children, I’m sure there are plenty of adults out there that would love to get this as a gift. I guess just call me old fashioned… but if I’m dropping $250 on a gift - I want to be getting the physical item, not just a place holder.
