Day 1 of 12 Days of Coinbase: Spend your crypto balance on e-gift cards

We often hear from customers that they want to be able to do more with their cryptocurrency. We’ve spent 2018 focused on behind-the-scenes utility work to help them do just that. This work has culminated in 12 big updates that we’re excited to share with the community — one announcement every day for our very own 12 Days of Coinbase. These are our holiday season thank you to the community as we head into a big 2019.

What better way to start the 12 Days of Coinbase than with a new way to use crypto on physical goods and experiences for friends and family? Today that becomes easier with the expansion of our e-gift card program (previously available in the UK and EU only) to Coinbase customers in the U.S.

Starting today, e-gift cards are available through our program with WeGift (previously in the UK and EU only) and can be purchased at dozens of great vendors, including Uber, Nike, and many more. Getting started is easy — visit WeGift to link your Coinbase wallet and you can immediately spend crypto on e-gift cards.

Even better, customers purchasing e-gift cards enjoy no withdrawal fees and bonuses of up to 10% on select vendors, making it smoother than ever to use crypto. Now, you’re just a few clicks away from spending your balance on e-gifts cards for Adidas shoes, or your next vacation. Better yet, use some on the holidays — you’re just in time.
