…Gift Cards get high tech?

Target Best Buy Gift Cards

This year, gift cards go beyond just plastic as companies add features to lure you into buying the profit-filled gifts.

New card ideas include Target, which has added a small digital camera to their card, and Best Buy, which chose to go with a speaker that can connect to any MP3 player and play music through the included mini headphone jack.

While the Target card makes sense, because you can use it to capture holiday memories, send thank you pics to the gift giver, and even use it as a camera stand-in on your way to buying a real digital camera of your choice, the Best Buy one seems a little strange, since I can’t imagine the tiny speaker sounding any good as it attempts to keep up with the enthusiastic gift recipient.

Either way though, it’s an interesting idea, and it will be interesting to see what gets attached to a gift card next.

…Price Protectr wants to save you money?

Price Protectr

Many stores (Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Office Max, Sears, Target to name a few) have a policy where you can receive cash back if they lower their price within 30 days of your purchase, but most customers have no idea. Price Portectr want to change that by making it easy to keep track of changing prices and potential savings. When you buy something online, simply enter the URL of the item into their site, and they’ll email you if the price drops within 30 days. It’s a great way to get a little extra cash back, and it’s free, so you’ve got nothing to loose (except 30 days of worrying weather or not you got the best deal).
