Gonift.com Scam – Why I’ll Never Use a Gonift Gift Card AGAIN

I received a Nift gift card for booking my first client as a pet sitter on rover and I proceeded to the website gonift.com to redeem my $30 offer. First of all, I wasn’t allowed to see anything to buy unless I put in the “zip code” number. When I did so, the categories I was shown was CBD/THC Gummies, Health and Beauty and Fragrance subscription.

The offers in the categories were more than $30. So it wasn’t a “free gift” perse. All the “gifts” I was offered were simply discounts applied through a promo code at checkout, where I actually have to pay the difference. You get a coupon code BUT you have to PURCHASE selected items with your OWN money and many of the products are well over the gift card amount.

Also, most of the products require you to sign up for an auto-renewing subscription and aren’t much different from discounts you can get elsewhere.

So Nift gift card works this way – You put your gift card number on the website, then you’re shown categories for your offer. Once you select your “gift”, you are redirected to that website, select what you want, at checkout apply your promo code & pay difference.

Is Gonift a Scam or Legit Gift Network?

Gonift is a gift network that was launched 16 September 2015, so it has been operating for a long time. However, their methods of operation is shady. You get a coupon code BUT you have to PURCHASE selected items with your OWN money and many of the products are well over the gift card amount.

A user got a Nift for a “free” razor trial kit, but the catch was that he had to sign up for monthly delivery before he even tried it. So he gets automatically charged for this subscription monthly.

Gonift.com Reviews

Users have left the following reviews on Better Business Bureau.

Misleading website. The gifts are not gifts, theyre coupon offers on expensive subscription services. Sure, maybe some people are into expensive services but to mislead people into thinking they are getting a gift Is false advertising. If you want to use a service to give your customers/workers a gift, certainly dont use nift because the only person who wins is nift themselves.

I dont understand all of the negative reviews for this business. I received my first Nift gift a couple of months ago and did not like the couponed offered to me. However, in the next couple of months I did like the offers sent to me, which we were based on my preferences. It seems like the people who have submitted negative reviews did not read the offer carefully. It is obviously an advertising service that seeks to connect consumers with brands that will likely interest them. Its a win win for both the customer and the company.

Pros of Gonift.com

  • Nift gift card can be used in both physical or online stores


To use Nift gift card you are required to spend your own money to cover the rest of the product. For example, you would get a 30$ give card but every item the business sells is greater than the original 30.


Gonift.com has a massive flaw that needs to be looked into by the company. People should be allowed to use their $30 Nift card to buy something worth $30 without having to use their own money. That’s the benefit of gift cards.
