Target Sells Virtual Cards In-Store, Introduces New Card Designs
November 6, 2012
Target Brands Inc. will sell virtual cards in-store by having QR code on its displays to enable customers send digital cards. It also has introduced new physical cards that include features such as lights, sound, and motion.
A gift card with a snowman plays the tune "Joy to the World." Another features a bear wearing a light-up Christmas sweater. And there's a reindeer-shaped gift card that comes with a magnet stylus to help users navigate the antler maze.
