I am really grateful for this forum, and we are also very excited about the long term potential of this partnership.

Yes, it was considered, but I wanted to keep it very clean and simple to start with. We are always open to suggestions, and we may consider adding this. One thing to note is that you can always supplement a purchase on Blowout Cards with additional money. If you want to buy something for $68, you can use a $50 gift certificate and put $18 on your credit card.

We have discussed many future plans. One of them is being able to order any Blowout Cards product directly from the CheckOutMyCards website. This will take some pretty significant development work and coordination, but it is something we are open to offering.
