Gyft Giving away $10 for each Download of its New Android App

Gyft, the gift card app, is launching on Android today and will give you $10 from a “mystery retailer” just for downloading its new app.

The company launched its digital gift card service last month, which allows consumers to buy from popular merchants and share or re-gift unused cards from their mobile devices.  Gyft has acquired over $5 million in free gift cards and will be sharing it in various promotions with its users this holiday season, meaning you might be getting your own gift to the tune of $250. Gyft has been giving away about $500 each week since its launch last month.

The app is also integrated with Apple Passbook, Facebook, and emails so it’s easy to give and share gifts from any of its 300 retailers. Watch their video by clicking the link below.
