A few days before Thanksgiving, I decided to go to the Lowe’s in East Rutherford, NJ. I was going to case out a few gift ideas for my family. It was just another day in the life of being a Christmas shopper. All of a sudden, Lowe’s became my favorite store in the world. Boy was I taken by surprise!
While heading for the Kobalt tool area, I stopped by at my favorite area of the store…the gift card rack. I started looking for all the gift cards I was going to buy for my friends and family. I wasn’t up for buying anything that day. As I looked on the other side of the gift card rack, I could not believe what I found. Lowe’s carries Carnival gift cards! Sometime ago, Carnival gift cards were only available at certain places; mainly travel agencies. Now, they’ve made it to Lowe’s stores. They’re right next to the Southwest Airlines gift cards.
How does the Carnival gift card work? It works in one of four ways. It can be used towards on board purchases including drinks, souvenirs, duty free shopping, and shore excursions. More importantly, it can be used towards purchasing a Carnival cruise vacation. It cannot be used towards gratuities. Unfortunately, that’s the passenger’s responsibility.
If there is a friend or family member who enjoys cruising, the Carnival gift card is the perfect gift. Lowe’s is the place to find them. Customers can choose to put $25.00 to $500.00 on the card. The possibilities are endless. Without a doubt, it is a gift card for any occasion. Whether it is a gift for someone who’s never cruised before, or for someone who cruises often, it is truly what they call “the gift that keeps on giving”.
