Prize Promotion from BofA: Win an iPad

giveaways!#gno featured

Now that we’re in the thick of holiday planning, where do you stand with your holiday shopping? Do you have some last minute shopping that you need to take care of before the holidays hit?

When in a holiday shopping bind, what’s your go to gift? Many people decide to simply buy gift cards. But why give a gift card when cash is more flexible, is less likely to get thrown away with wrapping paper and doesn’t expire? Especially now that with the advance of technology, it’s even easier to securely gift someone money. For instance, Bank of America lets you send money to another person using only their email address or mobile phone number.

Or, if you feel you absolutely must send a physical token of your appreciation, go ahead and send a check in the mail. The recipient can easily use Bank of America’s mobile app to deposit the check on their schedule.

Be sure to mark your calendar and join us on Tuesday, December 18 as we chat with Bank of America about last minute holiday shopping!
