The beginning of the year always seems like a time when people flock to the gym in an effort to burn off the extra calories gained over the holidays and also to become more fit. Even apart from this, it seems to be the time of the year when there’s an influx of various fun runs, marathons, challenges and fitness programs.

I have one friend who is very fond of this time of the year, particularly because he is somewhat of a fitness freak.

From registering for nearly every marathon, to preparing months in advance, he definitely is one determined guy, set on his fitness goals.

While browsing the internet I came across the Sportsmans Warehouse website which informed me of their online gift card purchases, which I was totally unaware of.

Immediately, I thought this would be a great way of getting a gift (which he could choose for himself) for my friend for one of his races, especially because we now live in different cities.

All I had to do was to visit the Sportsmans Warehouse website to register for an online gift card which would automatically be sent to my friend, simply by filling in this online form.sportsmans formAfter I had chosen the amount of the gift card, which ranged between R100 and R1000, I specified my friend’s details and added the gift card to my cart like a product. Payments can be made using MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards which are registered with any South African bank. EFT payments are also accepted.

Once I checked out and my payment was confirmed, the voucher was sent to his email address. So when my friend wanted to make his purchase at a Sportsmans Warehouse in his city, all he had to do was to present the emailed gift card to the cashier to be redeemed.

SMS or Email vouchers such as these presented by Sportsmans Warehouse are a great way of reducing the risk of loss or theft by not having physical vouchers.

Now purchasing vouchers for my fitness fanatic friends, both near and far, has become as simple as a few clicks.

*Please note that the Sportsmans Warehouse gift cards are currently only redeemable in their stores and are not valid for online purchases.
