    Default travel vouchers/gift card

    Well, my oldest son is tying the knot
    with his fiance this Saturday, after a long
    2 year engagement.
    I wanted to get them a gift and have thought
    about helping them when they go off on a honeymoon
    (hopefully in the not to distant future).
    Has anybody had experience with a travel gift card
    or prepaid flight cards from jet blue/southwest etc?
    i found a visa travel money card, but can't find a retailer
    around here with it. I don't really want anything with
    monthly fees if it isn't used regularly, because they may
    not use it for a few months.
    any ideas?
    thanks!

    I've received a couple gift cards in the past. I had absolute headaches with more than one of them and have vowed to never hand them out to someone else.

    I'd rather give (or receive) straight cash so I don't have those strings attached.

    If you want to give them some kind of travel cash.... would traditional travellers checks work? (do they still have those?)

    Have you checked with you're local bank about prepaid Visa's or Visa gift cards?

    Here is one State Farm Bank offers with FAQ's

    Here is Chase Banks

    Yea, i know cash is king,

    but i guess it's just impersonal, and maybe
    i should be finding a more unique gift,

    the chase card looks ok, as well as that
    visa travel card, but i am not sure i can
    get to a retailer during the day this week
    to pick one up. (nothing real close to me)
    upon further review, there are monthly fees,
    so maybe cash is the way to go.. or a check.


    thanks for the input
