Microsoft borrows Giftah design at E9

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009


Looks like the person who designed Microsoft’s stage for E3 2009 took a little bit of inspiration from their friends at Giftah. We don’t mind, but in the future please include our name with the design : )

Fresh From The Oven, Big Changes On Giftah

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Since the launch of Giftah we have received a great deal of feedback on the service itself and ideas of features we should offer to our users. We have taken this feedback very seriously and have gotten to work to implement these ideas! Two weeks later and this is what we were able to accomplish:

  • All gift card transactions are now handled by Giftah, the winning bidder is able to pay the seller of the gift card and the seller then withdraws the winning amount.
  • Gift cards on the site are now verified by Giftah and the amounts the seller states are then guaranteed to be correct. Look for the “Verified by Giftah” signature for cards that are guaranteed by Giftah!
  • We have changed the way you look for cards! All gift cards are organized into categories.  No longer will you have to wonder where the card to your favorite store is located.
  • We gave the homepage a brand new look! You are now able to see at a glance the gift cards you save the most money on, auctions that are just ending and auctions that have just begun.

We are very excited about these new changes and we hope they will change the way you use Giftah! We would like to also remind you that we have made a few changes to our Terms & AgreementPolicies and FAQ .

If you have any questions or would like to know more about these changes feel free to drop us a line by simply replying to this blog post or email us at [email protected]. We also love to hear about other ideas you may have to better enhance the site. Feel free to let us know by visiting our feedback center .

New Features For Giftah

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

Hi everyone, first and foremost I would like to welcome all the users to Giftah. Thank you for signing up, we hope you have a great experience using Giftah. Since we have been live for less then two weeks we have been adding many new features. In this post I will go over some of the new functions that have been added to the site.

Add a new Store

Its impossible for us to find and add every single store to our site, that’s why we have now made it possible for users to add stores. If you can not find the store your gift card came from on our drop down list, just click the link next to it to add a store. Once you have filled out the brief form the store should be added to the list in no time.

View by country

The currency a gift card is sold in also designates which country it can be used in, to make it easier to find gift cards for sale in your country we added the ‘view by country’ drop down menu. To use this function just click on the buy button to view a list of all cards currently available and select you country from the drop down menu in the upper left hand corner of the page. Currently Giftah supports buying and selling gift cards in the United States and Canada.

More new features are on the way

We are always improving Giftah, whether its adding additional functions or making it easier to use. If you have an idea you would like to see implemented or have any problems please visit our feedback page and let us know what you would like to see on Giftah.
