BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 --, an online gift card market catering to a buy-local audience, has launched a new feature for its merchants and their customers. Online shoppers can now choose to schedule a future delivery for digital gift cards. The new feature comes just in time for consumers looking to get their Valentine's Day shopping done early.

Digital gift cards are delivered by email (e-gift cards) or by text message (mobile or m-gift cards) and have become a very popular option in recent years because of the unmatched level of convenience they offer to consumers.

It was quick, easy and saved me a long drive and the cost of shipping," said Kelly Misyiak-Bartashnick about her recent e-gift card purchase from Buddy's Pizza, located in Detroit, using "Without this option, I would probably have bought a card from another restaurant. Buddy's is my boss's favorite, so I'm thankful I was able to get him what he wanted most."
