Several times over the past year for various reasons I have been unable to award gift cards to winners. The drawing I'm holding in January will be the last drawing as I'm planning on holding SimCity contests instead.
I've determined, however, I need a better way to award prizes than mailing them out. For understandable reasons, some parents aren't keen on some stranger on some unknown website mailing a gift card to their kid.
While it is an option I can use, most members here won't have Paypal accounts so this won't be an option to most members.
One thing I'm thinking of is offering online gift cards (e.g. Amazon.com) as an option.
If anyone has suggestions on how I can award prizes without needing to mail them out, or suggestions for online merchants that I can buy gift "cardd" from that I can simply PM to the winner, please post them here.
