2019 Holiday Shipping Schedule

Holiday shopping can be daunting & time consuming. Gift Cards are a fast, easy, and thoughtful way to shower our loved ones with gifts! We are happy to be able to facilitate this for our customers.

To avoid unfortunate shipping delays, please be mindful of our cut-off dates for all orders. Electronic gift card orders must be received no later than December 23rd. Physical gift card order deadlines are listed below:

Lettermail – December 1st
Expedited Parcel – November 25th
Xpresspost Parcel – December 8th
Priority Parcel – December 8th

** Please Note: Order payments must have the necessary number of confirmations on the blockchain, by the dates listed, to be considered “received” **

Even with our Holiday Shipping Cutoff Dates in place, we can not absolutely guarantee delivery of physical orders by Christmas Day, due to unforeseen circumstances and forces beyond our control (i.e. Canada Post staffing).

FreeRange Mobile

Buy a Private Second Line with Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies

FreeRange gives you the ability to add a secondary line to your phone without the need for a sim card. The secondary line can be used for phone calls and SMS as long as your phone is connected to a mobile data network or Wi-Fi.
FreeRange is the perfect solution for bitcoiners looking to seperate their personal phone number from their bitcoin services. Use FreeRange mobile for your services that require SMS 2FA and avoid the dreaded sim-swap attack vector.

Coincards Expands to the U.S.A.

Be Among the First to Check Out our Brand New US Product Catalogue

June 25, 2019 – United States – Starting today, Coincards is excited to launch a new catalog serving US customers, building upon five years of successful growth in the Canadian market. Originally bootstrapped in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2014, Coincards offers digital and physical gift cards, mobile top-ups and prepaid vouchers for major retailers and online platforms in exchange for cryptocurrency.

Additionally, Coincards implemented one the first active commercial integrations of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network in early 2018 and maintains its platform on open source Bitcoin payment processing servers. These infrastructural choices are evidence of Coincards’ strong commitment to Bitcoin community values around openness, innovation, and financial autonomy.

“Merchant’s are realizing that Bitcoin is here to stay,” said Mike Olthoff, Founder and CEO of Coincards. “Offering gift cards as a bridge is a natural choice for both the brands and the consumers. Retailers gain exposure to Bitcoiners, and Bitcoiners are able to live their lives with financial freedom”.

Coincards has always upheld the bold yet pragmatic mission of bridging the gap between cryptocurrency consumers and mainstream merchants, and the company’s trendsetting business model allows for a more rapid path towards global merchant adoption of cryptocurrency. By reducing the pain points of transacting with cryptocurrency, Coincards has opened doors for Canadian citizens to more effectively utilize their purchasing power. Additionally, this offramp for cryptocurrency users has significantly lower fees and overall costs than manual exchange between currencies.

As Coincards expands its service to the US market, the site proudly offers digital gift cards for some of the most popular brands, services, and restaurants in the United States including Amazon.com, Uber, Home Depot, Dominos, Hotels.com and more. Coincards is actively accepting partnerships with more USA merchants, to provide diverse options for customers to experience their favorite brands.

With this market expansion, the company will extend its hours for live customer support, and continue to build connections between the gift card commerce sector and the burgeoning cryptocurrency industry. As a crypto-native organization that has been around half as long as Bitcoin itself, Coincards’ growing team melds a customer-first attitude with a rare depth of knowledge of the intricacies of cryptocurrency and the technologies that surround it.

Coincards has been live on the Lightning Network since early 2018, and have processed many of our payments through the lightning network for both Gift Cards and Mobile Topups.

Coincards remains committed to the lightning network and recently upgraded our infrastructure to receive lightning network payments even faster and to ensure we continue to expand the number of gift cards available under our Instant delivery program when using Lightning.
