FriendGiftr: America's Favorite Gift Cards

23 June 2010

Three friends will be celebrating their birthdays on the second week of September this year. Because that is also the week of my own natal day, I won't have the time to buy them perishable gifts (i.e. birthday cake). I am the happiest person when I learned about FriendGiftr.

Friendgiftr was founded in October 2008 by Rob Carpenter as the first e-commerce 2.0 company to commercialize social media and mobile phones by introducing real, purchasable brand name company products to multiple social networking sites and smart phones.

Their first product, the largest collection of the top virtual and physical retail and restaurant gift cards online, are available for purchase on, Facebook, MySpace, iGoogle, Bebo, and Ning. They will also be expanding onto iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Palm, Nokia, and other mobile platforms soon. Simply put, Friendgiftr lets you shop pretty much anywhere through the world's first ever virtual network of linked commercial applications.

Users are now able to buy and send real digital and/or physical gift cards to friends, family, and associates for the holidays, birthdays, other special occasions, or anytime. Buyers can select from over 120 of their favorite retail and restaurant gift cards to buy $10, $20, $25, $35, $50, $75, and $100 gift cards. But what’s really special about Friendgiftr is that end receivers are empowered to get what they really want –they can exchange the gift card given to them from their friends or family for any of the 120 merchants Friendgiftr offers for no additional cost and without the buyer knowing. They can also split the gift card across multiple merchants, enabling the ultimate user choice and control.

By the way, just in case you want to say Hi! to the staff, their office is located on Hollywood & Vine in the beautiful Taft Building, the former home of Charlie Chaplin, Will Rogers, and the Academy Awards.
