Top 20 Most Wanted Gift Cards of 2010

Here is our third annual Top Gift Cards of the year list. Those of you who have followed our blog for the last three years are probably familiar with our Top 10 Most Popular list. For this year, we decided to expand the list to Top 20 and only use data from our wish list, which we think is a more accurate representation of what gift cards people want (even though it did not change the Top 10 cards that much). The list you see below was compiled from a nationwide sample of about 6,000 wish lists created by GiftCardRescue.com users showing which gift cards they would like.

What do you think about the list? Did anything surprise you? Is there a merchant you expected to be in the Top 20 that did not make it? Share your comments below.

    The gas cards are interesting choices since I don’t think I’d buy one for myself, but I guess with gas being such a big everyday purchase people like having them handy.

    I’m surprised how far down the list MasterCard gift cards are, but I guess since VISA is more widely accepted, it makes sense.

    I have several gas cards on my WishList. It’s one of the few cards I don’t mind buying ahead and holding onto for throughout the year.
