Instead of stuffing that stocking with the same old gift card, Target wants to spice things up. Sure, their gift cards have the excitement of all things Target, but these cards have something a little special inside: a digital camera.
SlashGear says that the retailer’s gift cards are packing a 1.2-megapixel chip, which isn’t all that awesome camera-wise—but you can also buy diapers, laundry detergent, clothes, or a Nerf N-Strike with it. Name one other camera that allows you to do that.
The card is available in increments of $50 to $1,000, and comes with 8MB of memory, which should hold about 50 images. It’s also the gift that keeps on giving, because it comes with a voucher for 40 free prints at the Target Photo Center.
It’s a nice little twist on the same old gift card—you know, aside from the many options of gift card holders out there. It’s kind of weird that Target doesn’t seem to be promoting it front and center on its Gift Card page. It also looks like they have a night-light design for the wee ones (or scaredy cats) on your list.
