First of all, yes, you are purchasing the gift cards from Fluz but what you are purchasing are digital gift cards of merchants. For example, a CVS gift card is not a Fluz gift card, it is an actual CVS gift card. This means it can be redeemed anywhere a CVS gift card can.

Digital gift cards
Physical gift cards are gift cards which you have the actual card of. With digital gift cards, instead of a physical card, what you have is a bar code, gift card number, and pin (if applicable).
It is important to make the distinction between physical and digital gift cards because when you are paying in the store, some stores have a different redemption process for physical vs. digital gift cards. Therefore, remember to tell the cashiers that you are using a digital gift card.

Do my gift cards expire?
