According to the Washington Post, the Postal Service will test sales of gift cards in May at 2,000 retail outlets.
Instead of branded gift cards, the pre-paid cards would be general use cards from American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa, according to papers filed Wednesday with thePostal Regulatory Commission.
If it works, the cards would expand to another 3,000 offices later in the year.
The cards would be sold in either fixed amounts or variable amounts up to $100.
So, what do you think? Would your customers buy these kinds of cards? Is this a good idea?
