So, the crazy holiday shopping frenzy season is going to be upon us yet again, and this time around, you might want to be on the lookout for great deals so that you can stretch that hard earned dollar better. Microsoft could help you out in this particular department, having launched an app which would enable people to purchase digital gift cards directly from the Windows Phone Store, now how about that? Do bear in mind that these are digital gift cards, and they are not to be confused with the physical gift cards.
It’s the time of year when attention turns to buying gifts. Black Friday is now out of the way, but there’s still Cyber Monday for you to stock up on low-cost presents for yourself and others. There are plenty of electronic devices vying for attention as companies try to tempt you into parting with your cash, but if you’re the indecisive type, there’s always the trusty fall-back of the gift card. Keen to give you as many ways as possible to throw your money in its direction, Microsoft has launched Digital Gift Cards for Windows Phone. This is an app that does very much what you would expect, making it possible to buy and share gift cards from the comfort of your Windows Phone. But Microsoft isn’t stupid. The gift cards themselves are not limited to Windows Phone purchases — they can be used to buy apps, games, movies and music from Xbox and Windows stores.
