Valentine's Day Card

Cant quite decide what to get your sweetie for Valentines Day? Well, Borders Books and Music has just the ticket. Beginning February 1, 1999, Borders will offer a special Valentines Day electronic gift certificate, available in a $25 denomination, that will be the perfect gift for your sweetie … or Uncle Fred, your childs teacher, Dad, Mom, the babysitter – just about everyone on your gift list.
As a special Valentines Day promotion, Borders will include a free blank journal with the purchase of each gift certificate card, which is the size of a credit card, while supplies last. The journal, a $4.95 value, features a heart graphic, and is bound with the gift card by a silver band, taking care of your wrapping worries, too. The heart journal is available only through stores, not when purchasing the gift cards online.

The card is redeemable exclusively at any of the 250 Borders Books and Music locations across the U.S., and works like a prepaid phone card, automatically retaining any unused balance. An additional convenience is that Borders provides a toll-free phone line to check on the updated balance.
