If you're short on cash and would rather send an e-card instead of a gift (or short on time because you forgot to mail out that birthday card), many Web sites now offer free e-cards as well as paid electronic greeting card services.

Insights for E-Cards

  • Although there are many Web sites that provide e-cards free of charge, some sites charge a small membership fee. If you plan on sending a lot of e-cards and are looking for a larger variety, one of these premium memberships might be worth the price.
  • In recent years, bogus e-card links have been sent out as spam mail. If you click on a malicious link, a virus might be downloaded to your computer. Open e-cards only from trusted sources. To combat phony e-card spam e-mails, many Web sites now offer an e-card pick-up that allows you to retrieve a card using a password rather than directly clicking on an e-mailed link.
