About BGGE Gift Certificates & Gift Rewards 
The perfect gift!
BGGE Gift Shop - Personalized Gift CertificatesGift Certificates really are the perfect gift!   They save you the time and stress of shopping for family, friends or business associates.  Gift certificates are the safe choice when giving to someone who you know to be picky or who seem to have everything, or for someone who you might not know very well.  Because they choose their own gift, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that the recipient will not be in the return aisle the next day.  

Gift certificates are also ideal when you need to buy a large number of gifts at once.  And they can be used effectively as rewards in your organization's incentive, service recognition, safety, customer loyalty, or fundraising program.   Contact us about our "Pick a Gift" reward program.

In general, merchants have the right to refuse a transaction.   For security purposes, you may be required to add a confirmed billing address, enter credit card or bank account information, etc. to your PayPal account before you can redeem your gift certificate.  

Our prices on our web site are rarely in error, but we retain the right to refuse a transaction pending verification of correct pricing.  We will inform you of any discrepancy we might encounter, and allow you the choice of purchase or refusal at the correct price.

 BGGE reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order at any point in the transaction for any reason, regardless if any invoice has been printed or listed.  Sales are not final until the order is received by the customer.

Do I need a PayPal account to redeem a gift certificate?

Yes.  Recipients must have a PayPal account or sign up for one at the time of redemption.  When a gift certificate is delivered, instructions are included on how to redeem it.  This safeguard is intended to protect all parties involved.

How will the value of my gift certificate be applied to my order?

If the amount of your order exceeds the value remaining on the gift certificate, you will be required to pay for the balance using PayPal.

If the amount of your order is less than the value remaining on the gift certificate, any unused value will remain on your gift certificate until spent.  BGGE Gift Certificates do not expire and no fees apply.

Can I redeem multiple gift certificates for a single purchase?

Yes, but each gift certificate must be denominated in the same currency - USD.
