Send a Greeting and a Gift with Western Union

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Western Union for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

This post is being paid for by my sponsor Western Union.
Western Union has made it really easy for anyone to send greeting cards and monetary gifts.  Simply visit and choose greeting cards suitable for a variety of occasions including anniversaries, birthdays, congratulations, holidays, thank-you’s and more.  Add a personal greeting to be printed inside the card and load any amount from $5 to $100 onto a Mastercard debit card.  Western Union will even mail it First Class for free.  If you need to get it there faster, you can choose Fed Ex shipping, though that is not free.   After you've completed your purchase you'll also have the option to call 1-866-953-6490 and record a FREE personal voice message which your recipient will hear when they activate their MasterCard.
For your recipient, the gift card is really easy to activate - either by visiting or by calling the toll-free number 1-866-953-6489.  I am not sure if they will hear your recorded greeting when activating through the web page, but hopefully Western Union has thought of that, too.  I think the personal recorded greeting is a really nice extra touch.  Your recipient will be able to use the card anywhere debit Mastercard is accepted - in stores and online - and it's really easy to track the balance by going online to or by calling the toll-free number.  The card is fee-friendly - absolutely NO fees unless the card is not used for 12 consecutive months, and that's probably not going to happen.  After all, money is one gift that everyone appreciates!

If you're looking for an easy way to let someone know you're thinking of them or just don't know what to buy for that special occasion, a Western Union gift card may be just the thing.
There's usually a $5 fee for sending a  Western Union gift card, but through 9/1/12 you'll save 25% by entering promo code WUGIFTPROMO8 when you check out:
