Giving Made Easy With Egghead.com's Gift Certificates; Electronic Gift Certificates Take the Guessing
Out of Gift Giving
MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 9, 1999--Let Egghead.com (Nasdaq:EGGS) take the guessing out of gift
giving with its new electronic gift certificates redeemable for tens of thousands of products on it's web site at www.egghead.com.
The gift certificates, which are in dollar amounts designated by the giver, can be purchased by anyone; you don't need to be a
registered customer with Egghead.com. The recipient of an Egghead.com gift certificate can redeem it at the site.
Once the dollar amount of the gift certificate is determined, the gift-giver provides Egghead.com with the recipient's email
address. Egghead.com sends an email with an optional personal greeting to the recipient with a gift certificate number. The
recipient redeems his or her gift certificate by entering this number when placing an order.
"Egghead.com's gift certificates provide flexibility for gift-givers," said Jerry Kaplan, Egghead.com's CEO. "We are pleased to
offer this valuable service in time for the holidays."
