The concept is AWESOME. But we have bought for clients during the holidays for at least 3 years. Email the card to each client as they are all over the country. The ones that get them and use them, love them. Unfortunately that ends up being about 35%...not sure where they go, SPAM would be my guess. So... Tis Best basically becomes the recipient of my holiday gifts. May try mailing the cards this year...which adds a lot to the effort

Wanted to make sure we followed up with you in regards to this issue, if you would like to send out e-mail cards again please do reach out as we can help on our end to insure that the cards are being delivered. Additionally, if you did decide to send out physical cards we can handle all of the assembly and shipping here on our end to send them out for you. Regarding the unspent cards If your recipient doesn't spend their gift card, you can always do it yourself (your receipt gives you access to the unspent codes--let us know if you need another copy). If a card remains unspent for three years, the funds on that card slowly roll into our education budget. Even then the cards themselves never expire so the recipient is welcome to redeem them at any time. The rolled over funds are used to support the TisBest Charity Gift Card system and specifically to support DiscoverGiving, TisBest’s classroom philanthropy project. Monies are used to provide free giving kits to select classrooms and to enhance all aspects of the DiscoverGiving program. Remember, TisBest is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all monies are spent carefully and effectively to make this unique charity gift card system possible, to encourage non-material gift-giving, and to support our charity partners. Thanks for using TisBest, and let us know if there's anything we can do to make the experience better for you in the future!
Our company uses TisBest every time we complete a project. We are a remodeling company in Florida and have the pleasure of working with a lot of clients whom are more on the "blessed" side and the only way we could fathom giving someone who has it all a gift worth giving, is to donate to any organization they chose on our behalf. TisBest has any non-profit organization from all walks such as the military, wildlife, nurses, wounded soliders and SOOOOOOOO many more! Our clients LOVE IT & so do we.
We have yet to come across any other site as diverse and put together as TisBest. p.s.Love the E-card option!!! NO COMPLAINTS ON OUR PART, We LOVE TisBest!
I had been advocating to my family for years that donations to the charity of the gift recipient's choosing would make a much better present than yet another material object.
I've worked with TisBest in the past and know how dedicated the staff is to raising funds for charities. The vast majority of money donated flows past them and into the nonprofits they support. TisBest's heart is huge, their methods are sound and their decision-making trustworthy and solid.
Last year I distributed 100 TisBest promo cards to get the word out at my company. i had never heard of TisBest beforehand and am a firm believer now. The best part of the concept is that both the donor AND recipient have a active role in helping others. How many gifts do that? Jon Seigel is fantastic to work with and I highly recommend the whole TisBest group!

Thank you for your generosity and support, Ruth! We're so glad to hear how well your experience went with TisBest. We look forward to working with you again soon!
I haven't found a better way to give an individualized gift that makes the recipient feel good, doesn't add bulk to our already encumbered lives and helps the world a bit. It's a threefer. Lutie
