This gift sounds awesome – is it as good as it sounds?
Yes – it’s actually better. Feedback from customers is that the actual giving this gift and the excitement that spreads across the recipients face as they realise what it is, is priceless. And then of course, the joy they feel when they actually do the experience. Its like giving them a gift twice.
When does the gift expire?
The gift is valid for 12 months so recipients have a full year to choose what experience they want and head off and do it.
I don’t get it – all the prices are about the same as if I went direct to the experience provider – Chuffed appears to be really good value for money?
All the individual experiences in each package have a retail price about the same as the price of a Chuffed Gift Package. This is because Chuffed has an arrangement with each experience provider (over 90 of them) where they pay a commission to Chuffed for every gift that is redeemed at their business. This makes the whole Chuffed experience very good value.
