So… have you ever been sitting there and wanted to instantly send a gift to someone? I know I have Yiftee Gift Giving Appso when I was asked to review a new gift giving app called Yiftee, I jumped at the chance.

I was a little nervous wondering if there would be enough merchants available and was pleasantly surprised to find quite a few in our area and they were GOOD places, too. The awesome ladies at Mom Central Consulting told me I was getting 2 coupons to give “yifts” and 2 as thanks for reviewing. I gave them all away I was so excited to use the app.

Overall I love the app and the process was pretty easy.One thing that I think they should address is that when the recipient opens their notification, it doesn’t tell them the value of their gift. I sent a $10 gift to each of my friends and none of them knew how much it was for until I told them. The only other thing that I noticed is that the app crashed on me a couple of times when I was building my gifts.. that’s probably just a “I’m a new app” thing and nothing that would deter me from using it. I have not tried to redeem a Yiftee coupon yet, but even if I have to “educate” the business, I’m fine with that.

So, how simple is it to “yift” someone? This easy:

  1. Download the app
  2. Connect it to your Facebook account
  3. Open the app
  4. Put some money on your account
  5. Select your city (or the city where your recipient is)
  6. Browse thru the merchants who are participating
  7. Select the merchant for your friend’s gift
  8. Decide the amount you want their gift to be (there IS a small service charge, so keep that in mind)
  9. Decide the delivery method (Facebook notification, email or text)
  10. Add to the cart and checkout
  11. Sit back, know you just made someone smile and relish in the fact that you are an awesome person

I’m not kidding when I say I’m excited about this app. I have high hopes that this will take off and be wildly successful. I can’t wait to make someone’s day again and yes, I’m hoping someone will Yift me 🙂

Go and try it and tell me what you think about it!

While I did receive Yiftee credits to facilitate my review, trust me – it had no bearing on my opinion and in fact, I gave them all away when I didn’t have to. Because I’m cool like that.
