Etsy Is Giving Out Free Gift Cards & This Is How You Can Get One

The holiday season is almost here and while everyone loves getting into the spirit, it can also bring about a lot of stress as well. Finding the perfect gift for everyone that you love is hard and shopping in crowded malls and shopping centers can make even the most zen person anxious.

Etsy, the online retailer of homemade items and crafts that sells everything that you want and need, is also now in the business of creating an easier holiday shopping experience. Etsy recently launched their new holiday hotline, for the first time in Etsy history. Starting on Tuesday, November 5th, Etsy specialists will be dedicated to taking phone calls from overwhelmed gift shoppers. Etsy sells millions of handcrafted items and believes that you'll be able to find something for everyone on your list but will this service will be especially beneficial for those friends and family members that already have everything or those who are extra hard to shop for.

Using the hotline is easy too! You just need to call 1-844-9900-JOY in between the hours of 12pm-3pm EST. You'll be connected with an Etsy gifting expert that will find out exactly what you're looking for in a gift, including who you're shopping for and what your price points are for each gift. Once they've gotten all of the information that they need from you, they'll send you an email with a list of gift ideas on it that they think matches what you indicated you were looking for.

As a bonus for trying out this new shopping program, every person who calls in and signs up for the service will receive a free Etsy gift card! In order to redeem your gift card and participate, you just need to make sure that you have an account set up with Etsy before calling in.

After speaking with your specialist and giving them all of your gift specifications, they'll add the gift card balance to your Etsy account. You can spend the balance of the gift card in any way that you want. You may be wondering what's the catch and how much does this service cost? That's the best part...it's absolutely free, even the shipping, so there's no risk to try it.
