As you may have heard, shipping delays are plaguing the 2021 holiday shopping season. The Port of Los Angeles is now a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week operation to help relieve supply chain bottlenecks and move stranded container ships. Industry experts recommend you start holiday shopping now, if you haven’t already.

But what happens when, even though you started your holiday shopping early, you can’t find that perfect gift on store shelves? This year, consider a gift card. One of the biggest merchants out there, Amazon, currently has a gift card deal that’s not to be missed: When you buy $50 worth of Amazon gift cards, you get a $10 Amazon credit two days later. That’s like free money in your pocket this holiday.

There aren’t supply-chain issues with gift cards — e-cards can be sent virtually without relying on UPS or the post office at all. And other gift cards are on sale, too, offering smart shoppers credits or cash back.

If you don’t want to deal with mail delivery slowdowns and supply chain issues, gift cards are a great gift choice in 2021. Consider the gift cards, from Walmart, Amazon and more, ahead.
