Facebook gifts - $1 for $5 gift card ($4 off) YMMV

https://www.facebook.com/gifts

Click the link and send someone a gift.
It will give you $4 off the gift card you purchase...so a $5 gift card would cost only $1.

I sent one to my husband. Took 2 min. He had to confirm and accept it but it went through fine. Some have to be sent in the mail but they tell you if they do

Easy :woot:

UPDATE:
Seems it's YMMV - I did it on chrome and was logged in to my account

Some are reporting it works on one account but not another.

how did you it?

Mintoo 03-20-2013 12:51 PM

Who pays for 'virtual' (intangible) stuff?

kags 03-20-2013 12:52 PM

just click the link be sure that you are logged in in you FB, The $4 discount will appear on top of the page and then you'll select a GC- I chose Starbucks as it's the only one with minimum of $5

iBoo 03-20-2013 12:52 PM

no $4 off.

I did exactly what you instructed us to do.

andythepandy 03-20-2013 12:56 PM

I can see the $4 off banner. It appears on top. Maybe it is targeted?

VadimNYC 03-20-2013 12:58 PM

no $4 off.. ugh.. which browser are you guys using?

Thanks OP. Repped and thumbs up! I did get the offer on one account, but not on the other. I attached screen shots of how it appears at the facebook.com/gift link.

I received an immediate confirmation, but it did take 30 minutes for the Starbucks e-GC with Pin to show up in my e-mail.

alastairdeacon 03-20-2013 02:57 PM

Have a Chrome browser and 4 FB accounts. The banner was only on 1 account. In for a $10 Target gc. Thanks op, repped.

ryancguy 03-20-2013 03:16 PM

i only have 1 account and I had the offer. Sent sbux to my wife.

Appleonius 03-20-2013 03:19 PM

Worked using safari on ipad. Maybe targeted? Maybe it pops up if you have a friend's birthday coming up?

722 03-20-2013 03:21 PM

Nothing on my account, got it on another account.

firstdavis 03-20-2013 03:22 PM

ok call me complete noob, but am new to sbucks. On what exactly can I use this coupon? Is sbucks any good? what is worth getting there?

Springhare 03-20-2013 03:24 PM

Finally worked for me! Tried it every other time I saw this posted on here to no avail. Good luck to all.

HotFlakeyBabe 03-20-2013 03:35 PM

It's targeted, as I had the offer in FB but my husband didn't in his, and neither did friends I mentioned it to.

firstdavis 03-20-2013 03:37 PM

The Starbucks gift is a regular $5 GC good for anything in the store. You can add the digital card to your account and pay with a smartphone or you can print a paper GC that has a barcode for the store to scan.

They have coffee and food. It's somewhat overpriced. YMMV.

shamanstar 03-20-2013 05:31 PM

Facebook gifts allows you to send gifts to your friends based on their interests. It suggests gifts based on your friends interests. If you put on your profile that you like the band My Band Sucks, FB gifts suggests you send the album to your friend as a gift from iTunes. I'm thinking if said friend took the time to say they like the band, they probably have the album. If their favorite movie is Amelie, they probably have the movie Amelie. Please Facebook, don't suggest gifts for my friends to give me. You are not very good at it.

u2fan01 03-20-2013 10:23 PM

How long does it take for the GC to be delivered after they open it? I sent it as a PM, but it hasn't arrived to their email yet...

anteciple 03-20-2013 10:29 PM

I think I figured it out. It's for accounts that don't have a payment method saved on the FB. I know a lot of games that advertise giving away some of their premium simply for adding a valid payment method (typically $3 worth). This would simply be another method to draw people to spend more money on facebook. In for 1, since I have an account without a payment method. Hoped this helped anyone who couldn't get it to work.

CubanMustGo 03-21-2013 04:29 AM

Only worked on one account, got the 500 error, added a cc and it worked.

My other FB accounts didn't have a cc and didn't have the $4 off, tho. Still worth it, thanks OP.

truelies 03-21-2013 04:44 AM

No $4 off, even no $5 gift card.

xochief 03-21-2013 05:15 AM

looks like it's targeted. Got 1 offer on 10 of my fake accounts. None had a credit card on file though so had to add a cc then was able to purchase a Jamba Juice $5 gift card for $1. Otherwise the error message keeps popping up if you don't have a cc on file.

kelemvor 03-21-2013 06:22 AM

For those that got it to work, at which page do you see the ad? Right on the facebook.com/gifts page or after you click Give a Gift?

I don't see it anywhere so I guess I'm not cool enough. :(

It will give you $4 off the gift card you purchase...so a $5 gift card would cost only $1.

I have two FB accounts. My personal one, which I have deactivated, and one I use to promote a website (set up under a personal account). My website account had the deal so I reactivated my personal to send it to and it worked perfectly. Thanks OP! Back to deactivating my personal account now.

Same message for me, I had to laugh at the hacked part. They declined it again when I tried a new VCC number. Had to use my actual number and it went through fine.

mrawesomepants 03-21-2013 03:28 PM

How long does it take to get? It said the gift would be emailed to me like 30 minutes ago and still nothing. I got the itunes GC.

jjjjennieeee 03-21-2013 03:50 PM

I got the offer on one of my fake accounts. Just wondering how to add a credit card # to this account that will be approved ... since my fake facebook username obviously won't match the name on my credit card? how did the other fakes on this site do it?

Edit: Nevermind, if you go through account settings and add the payment method there as suggested in this thread you can add your real name there. The tricky thing now is that I sent it to another fake facebook personality of mine and facebook only gives a physical facebook gift card-- we cannot transfer the Target dollars onto target mobile or use it online so hopefully i'm not stuck at a Target store trying to prove this identity to anyone....

How long does it take to get? It said the gift would be emailed to me like 30 minutes ago and still nothing. I got the itunes GC.

Today will be 2 days since I accepted the gift and I still haven't received the actual gc email.

The "Give a Gift" button is greyed out for me. Oh... I have no friends.. that must be why. LOL

I got mine about an hour ago so it took like a total of 20 hours. I also emailed support last night and let them know I hadn't gotten it yet, but idk if that helped. I'd recommend contacting them. I contacted them from my receiving account.

I contacted them a second time today and they responded with the gc number and pin.

Purchased 2 $5 starbuck GC on my 2 facebook accounts. I 'm sure that this promotion is targeted like other are saying. For those who don't want to input their personal cc info on facebook, you can use prepaid cards. I used a rebate visa card and it went through. Now, I'm waiting for the gifts to arrive into my email.

Did one on my fake account and sent it to my real one. Claimed it and received the gift card code within an hour
