I make no secret of the fact that I love Costa Coffee. Their mini shortbread squares and bite size flapjacks are on my secret treat list (I have even been known to share them with the kids).
|Costa Gift Cards – A Fab Mother’s Day Pressie|
Our local Costa (Cardiff Bay) is my bolt hole when the Husband returns from continental climes and offers me an hour or so sanctuary from the wall to wall bickering which seems to be a permanent feature at Hobbis Towers at the moment. (I’m referring to the kids here. The Husband and I don’t have the energy to bicker, save whether Top Gear viewing should take precedence over a Midsomer Murders rerun).
This Mother’s Day, I’ll be treating my mum to a Costa gift card since her Christmas present was her own body weight in Maltesers. Costa gift cards can be easily bought online at www.costa.co.uk.
Simply complete the form, selecting how much you would like to put on the card (anything from £5 to £75). At the bottom of the screen you’ll be asked to say how many cards you would like and then ‘add to cart’. The card will appear in “Your Basket” at the top of the screen. Click on it and then checkout. Cards will be dispatched the next working day and will arrive according to your chosen delivery method.
The card can be used in any participating Costa store for coffee, food or merchandise and the recipient is advised to register their card to protect their balance. Note though that the card must be used within 12 months. Note also that the card cannot be used in Costa Express outlets or in Northern Ireland. Check before you buy.
Since we are so close to Mother’s Day, you can also send your Costa gift card as an egift. Simply complete the online form, add your message, choose a design for your card and add it to your basket.
The egift is simple to use – either by scanning the email at the counter or taking a paper print out. The minimum which can be loaded on a egift card is £10 and the maximum is £75. Again, these can only be used in participating stores in England, Scotland and Wales and they must be used within 12 months or the balance will expire.
If you’re a member of the Costa Coffee Club, you can accrue points when you use your giftcard or egift card towards additional Costa treats.

In case you’re exhausted by all that Mother’s Day shopping and need a coffee, I have a lovely £20 giftcard up for grabs (sorry, not useable in Northern Ireland). Just fill in the rafflecopter widget below and good luck!
