If you live on the west coast, you’ll soon have an opportunity to pick up a 2-pack of Jamba Juice gift cards, or jambacards as they call them. Jamba Juice now has an exclusive deal with Costco to sell gift cards in 120 warehouses across the west coast starting October 15, 2009. The 2-pack of $25.00 gift cards will have a price of $39.99; that’s a $10.00 or 20% discount.
If you’re not familiar with Jamba Juice, they sell a variety of healthy items, including great tasting fruit smoothies, juices, teas, hot oatmeal made with organic, steel cut oats, and baked goods. And recently, they have started to add other healthy choices like wraps and sandwiches too. I’ve not been to one, but I know a few people that really like them. Currently, they have about 735 locations across the country, so there’s probably a store near you. On the company’s website this is what they have to say about their gift cards:
A jambacard is the fast, easy way to always be ready for refreshment. Just stroll into any participating Jamba store, swipe your card, and enjoy some fun fruit goodness! There’s no cash or change needed. And when your card runs low, you simply refill it with any amount from $5-$500.
This sounds like a really great gift for the healthy eating friends or family members you might have. After years of buying gifts and pay outrageous shipping costs, I’ve come to the conclusion that buying gift cards is the way to go. It’s a shame that these gift cards will only be available to west coast locations but maybe they’ll make them available through Costco.com too.
