1 Gift Checks Online Press Kit Five Great Reasons to Consider Gift Checks Let s face it there s only so many ways to give someone a gift, and those options haven t changed much in decades. But Gift Checks are indeed something new, and with the benefits they provide to both the sender and the recipient, we are confident they will be a popular choice this holiday season and beyond. Why? 1. Saving Time Perhaps there was a time when going to the mall for holiday shopping was fun. But these days it s a frantic, chaotic experience marred by crowds and long lines and less than helpful store personnel. Plus, we re all working longer hours than ever before who has the time? With Gift Checks Online, you visit our website at your convenience, choose a card and a check amount, write a brief message to the check recipient, and Gift Checks Online does the rest. And since a Gift Check is the same as cash, you know your recipient will be able to buy exactly what they want with your present. 2. That Personal Touch Sure, you could just write a check from your checkbook and send that to someone, but that can seem rather impersonal just like a gift card. They re nice and convenient, but everyone likes to feel special when they receive a gift, and gift cards and bank checks really don t have that effect. With a Gift Check you select a design that fits your recipient s personality. You can then add a personalized message, so he or she will know that you re thinking of them when you send it. It s a greeting card and a check all in one.

2 3. No Hidden Fees or Fine Print Gift Checks Online charges a one-time fee of $4.99, which covers the card, the check and the shipping. However, with gift cards there are hidden fees, and some gift cards begin to lose their value over time. Some are never used at all. With a Gift Check, if the recipient doesn t cash it for any reason, you receive a full refund. If you are not satisfied with the Gift Check for whatever reason even if your recipient cashed the check, we will refund your $4.99 fee. Our only goal is your satisfaction. 4. Last Minute? No Problem! Buy a Gift Check today, and it will probably go out today. If not, it will be sent the following day. Most Gift Checks arrive 1-2 days from the time of purchase. So if you need a last-minute gift idea that won t look last-minute, Gift Checks have got you covered. 5. Never Miss a Special Occasion You can register on our website, and enter a list of birthdays, anniversaries and other special events among your family and friends. Then, we ll send you reminders when one of these events is coming up, so you ll never miss a chance to remember someone you love.

3 A Q&A with Ron Zayas Founder, Gift Checks Online 1. Where did the idea for Gift Checks Online come from? Ron: I was looking for something around the house, and I opened up a drawer and found a gift card inside that I had forgotten I had. And by the time I found it, the store had gone out of business! Later that day I mentioned this to someone, and she said that happens to her all the time. We just never got around to going to the stores where those cards could be redeemed. That got me wondering how often this happened, and I found that 1 in 4 gift cards are never used. That s when I had the idea for a Gift Check. 2. How are Gift Checks better than gift cards? Ron: First, they re the same as cash. You can cash a Gift Check at any bank, and spend the money wherever you like on whatever you like. As we say in the company, everybody digs cash. Also, there are no hidden fees with a Gift Check, and they won t lose their value. There s also a more personalized feel to a Gift Check, because of the many different designs that the buyer can choose from, and the personal message that can be added inside. You really feel like you re getting a special gift from a friend or relative. 3. This will be a very new concept to people. How will they know a Gift Check is safe? Ron: That s a question they should be asking about gift cards! If you mail one you d better insure it, because if it s lost in the mail, you won t get a refund. That s why people often choose to send gift cards via Fed-Ex or a more secure shipping method, which is also more expensive. In contrast, lost or stolen Gift Checks are replaced at no cost. We mail it for you, and if there s a problem we replace it. And we ll even refund the $4.99 fee if someone is unsatisfied with the purchase. Also, it s important to understand that a Gift Check is a real check, just like the checks in your checking account. Underneath all those colorful designs is a genuine check that will be accepted by any bank for deposit or cashing. 4. Gift cards are a $100 billion industry. Why do you think people will embrace something different? Many reasons. First, as I said earlier, 1 in 4 gift cards are never used. So if you bought one of those, the only gift recipient turned out to be the company that sold it to you. Gift Checks never lose their full value, and there are no hidden fees for their use or their replacement. If the recipient of your Gift Check does not deposit or cash their check in 90 days, the amount of the check will be refunded to you. Here s another advantage. When you buy a gift card, a lot of times you ll also buy a greeting card and put the gift card inside. Then, you ll have to add postage and mail it.

4 That costs more and takes more time. A Gift Check is a card and a check in one. We mail it for you and guarantee it s arrival or we issue a replacement at no charge. 5. Why should people consider giving Gift Checks this holiday season? Because everybody is so busy now, and most of us simply do not have the time to go to ten different stores and to find the perfect gift for everyone on our shopping lists. And don t we always get those one or two presents, where we think, Why would someone give me that? A Gift Check is always a welcome present. And if you can get your holiday shopping done faster on Gift Checks Online, that will leave you with time left over for more important things like spending quality time with your friends and relatives. Isn t that what the holiday season should be about?

8 For Immediate Release Editorial Contact: Bridget DiRico , #800 Gift Checks Online Launches New company offers creative, convenient alternative To sending cash or gift cards ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., October 20, 2012 Gift Checks Online, a company that provides a new way to send cash through the mail in the form of a personalized Gift Check, has officially launched its website today, according to founder Ron Zayas. A Gift Check is a personalized greeting card and check in one package for $4.99, which includes shipping. This is a unique way of giving a gift that s the same as cash, without any hidden fees, Zayas said. Our motto is Everybody digs cash. The company was inspired by negative experiences connected to the use of gift cards. Industry surveys have shown that as many as 1 in 4 gift cards are never used. With some gift cards you are limited only to buying something at the place on the card, and those that can be used anywhere are more expensive to buy, Zayas explains. A Gift Check can be cashed at any bank and used anywhere, and it never loses its full value. The Gift Checks Online website offers a wide array of gift check designs to choose from, themed by holiday or event. Gift Checks purchased by 3pm are processed and mailed the same day. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for someone to send a personalized gift to a friend or family member, and to make it easy for the recipient to spend that gift however they choose, Zayas said. Since Gift Checks are the same as sending cash, we don t expect one-quarter of them to go unused, as with gift cards. But if a Gift Check is unused for any reason, we provide a full refund to the purchaser. The Gift Checks Online website is located at About Gift Checks Online Gift Checks Online is the originator of the Gift Check, which combines the convenience of a check with the personal sentiment of a greeting card. Gift checks are a unique new way to remember special occasions for family and friends, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and holidays, or just to remind someone you love that they are special.
