…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.

…It’s Things Thursday: Something?


Are you the type of person that likes surprises?

Then you’re probably the type of person that would like the SomethingStore, a website that sends you “something, an item selected randomly among many things from our inventory, for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it”.

What could this something be?

    It may be something you need, something you want or something you desire. (Though it also may be total crap.)

    Yours may be a cool gadget, rare book, table game, handmade necklace, reverse clock, box of gourmet chocolates, set of shiny shower curtains, popular video game, big-box retailer gift card, the latest version of a software, a set of kitchen knives, a pair of designer jeans, garden tool, kitchen appliance, unique home decor item, electronic equipment, magazine subscription, office supply item, or…

    Your something will most likely be brand new, though it may also be refurbished or antique.

So SomethingStore can send you anything?

Well, besides “items or services that are illegal to trade in United States”, yes!

Sound good?

Then discover your something is today.

…The Facebook Page is growing?


Last week I announced the launch of the DidntYouHear.com Facebook Page, and since then, 25 people have already signed up to be fans, which is fantastic, so a big thanks to everyone who joined!

I also announced that I would be picking out one fan at random and giving them a $10 Amazon Gift Card, so thanks to the magic of Excel’s =rand() function, Alice Chang has been selected. Congratulations!

If you haven’t already done so, then check out the Facebook Page and click “Become a Fan”. I’ll be doing exclusive content and contests there just for the Facebook Fans, as well as adding games and more to interact with on the page, so it should be fun.

See you there!

…It’s TGI Friday: Facebook?


DidntYouHear.com is now on Facebook!

In an effort to find new, fun, and creative ways to promote the site, I’ve created a Facebook Page for DidntYouHear.com, and I’d love for you to check it out.

On the page, you’ll find a Facebook version of each post, along with a Discussion Board, a Wall, and a Graffiti area.

Though I’m not entirely sure what this page will become, I figure that it’s a great place for DYH readers to interact, and it can evolve into its own little community in time.

To get things started, I’m going to be doing a special giveaway to anyone who becomes a “Fan” of the page.

To enter, just click “Become a Fan” in the top right of the page, and then next Friday (March 7) I’ll select a random winner from among the fans, and award that person a $10 Amazon Gift Card (or something of equal value if Amazon isn’t exactly your thing).

I’m also looking for feedback, so feel free to contact me directly, or comment either on this post, or on the page with features that you’d like to see, general comments, or anything else that you can think of.

See you there!
