I love the holidays! I mean I love, love, love the holidays. I am getting excited as I type because I have thoughts of my Christmas tree, baking, a roaring fire in the fireplace and gift giving. This year will be the first time I build a fire (I’ve lived in my home for 7 years but have never used my fireplace) and for nostalgia I will watch the Yule Log on tv (fireside). It sounds idyllic to me and I am anticipating the moment when it all comes together. I am also looking forward to gift giving but I am not in love with the idea of going into crowded malls or stores to shop. Black Friday? No thank you. You will find me somewhere on a couch eating Thanksgiving leftovers and not fighting crowds to spend my money! I have become an absolute pro at online shopping. I enjoy having an array of gifts at my fingertips and I don’t have to get out of my pajamas!
This is a sponsored post. I received compensation from Visa/Gymboree to buy my products and use its Visa Checkout online payment service, but all thoughts reflected here are my own.
My online shopping for the holidays has become even easier now that I’ve learned about Visa Checkout online payment service. With Visa Checkout you create an account, enter your major credit card, billing and shipping address and you are done. By done I mean, for any online retailer that uses Visa Checkout you simply have to sign in to pay. Gone are the days of getting up to find the credit card you want to use and re-entering your address. It is just as easy as swiping your card at a register in store!
I was given the opportunity by Visa Checkout and Gymboree to test drive with my online shopping. Creating my account was extraordinarily simple. And then I went shopping! Gymboree has been a favorite since my son was born. I like the quality of the clothing and I find that I always get sales when I shop. This time I purchased a few fall/winter items for my son. He loves sweaters and in addition to two sweaters and two shirts, I also purchased a vest.
We have an annual tradition of wearing matching/coordinating Christmas pajamas and I was thrilled to find sets for us on Gymboree. We will be a Snowlady and Snowman this Christmas and I am quite excited! After deciding on my purchases checkout was swift. I clicked Visa Checkout as my payment option, entered my name and password, selected my preferred card, and that was it! So simple. I am going to be on the lookout for Visa Checkout for my holiday gift shopping. I really am impressed with the service.
