During the holiday season, there is a surge in people mailing gift cards. Unfortunately, some of these cards don’t make it to their destination. This is due in part to cards falling out of envelopes as a result of poor packaging or theft at the post office.

Here is a clip from WAVE 3 TV, an NBC affiliate in Louisville, KY talking about how loose packaging caused some gift cards to not reach their destination (the link to the clip is at the top right side of the article). The USPS also gives a few tips about gift card packaging. Worth the watch.
