Experience Gifts Giving Information & FAQs
Xperience Days® represents an exciting concept in gift giving. We believe that gifts should be given, received and above all else Experienced.
Activity Gifts are fun, interesting, exciting or even relaxing activities. Experiences are Unique Gifts which range from the exhilarating to the refined, and all have been selected and designed for the first-time participant. When you purchase an Experience Gift, you are buying a Certificate for the recipient which may then be scheduled at their convenience.
Xperience Days® offers a range of over 1,500 Adventure Gifts across the US in over 50 major metro areas. We offer some familiar experiences such as Hot Air Balloon Rides and Spa Treatments; unusual activities including Segway Tours & Ghost Tours; and once in a lifetime experiences such as NASCAR Driving or incredible Air Combat Experiences.
We are constantly adding new experience gifts across the United States. To stay up to date with all of the exciting new experiences we add, please register for our Email Updates, subscribe to our New Experience Gifts RSS Feed or view our new Experience Gifts. For those that can’t decide, Xperience Days Choice Certificates allow recipients to choose from a variety of Experiences Gifts within color-coded Choice Levels.
To enhance the overall gift experience, every Xperience Certificate® is beautifully presented in our specially designed presentation Gift Pack.
When you purchase an Xperience Certificate® or Xperience Choice Certificate® the Gift Pack will include:

Why buy Xperience Certificates® or Xperience Choice Certificates®? Xperience Certificates® and Xperience Choice Certificates® make the perfect gift for family, friends, loved ones, colleagues, customers and associates. These unique activity gifts provide the recipient with an experience they will remember and value for a lifetime.
How do I find the Perfect Gift? There are several ways you can search for the perfect gift. You may browse through the gift categories, or use the Experience Gift Finder to search by price, category of experience or location. You may also use the keyword search located at the top of each page. Alternatively, you may call a Customer Service Representative at 866-973-7436 for friendly advice.
If you still can’t decide, then you also have the option to purchase Xperience Choice Certificate® and allow the recipient to select their own activity.
What can Xperience Choice Certificates® be redeemed for? Xperience Choice Certificates® are flexible and allow the recipient to choose from a selection of unique activities within the Color Choice Level of purchase. However, the recipient of an Xperience Choice Certificate® may also choose to apply their Certificate towards any activity offered because Xperience Choice Certificates® may be used as partial payment towards any experience offered.
Xperience Choice Certificate® recipients will need to pay the difference in the price if the chosen activity is higher in price than the value associated with their Xperience Choice Certificate®. However, a balance will be held in credit to be used against any future purchase if the price of the selected activity is less than the value associated with their original Xperience Choice Certificate®. If you know someone who likes to make up their own mind, Xperience Choice Certificates® make the perfect gift!

Will my experience take place in bad weather? Due to the nature of many experiences, participation may be dependent upon the weather. The experience description and reservation confirmation will include advice about weather related cancellations by the Service Provider. It is the responsibility of the Participant(s) to confirm their reservation with the Service Provider if there are any weather related issues or questions on the day of the reservation. Provision of the experience is at the sole discretion of the Service Provider. Participants will be able to re-schedule any experience(s) cancelled by the Service Provider due to weather related issues.
Can I use any remaining credit with Xperience Days® to pay for merchandise or extra services from the Service Provider on the day of my experience?

Unfortunately, this credit cannot be used with any of our Service Providers.
Can I change the date of my reservation after it has been scheduled? Once a reservation has been confirmed there is a $20 processing fee* to make any changes to the date and time reserved. Changes to reservations can only be made prior to the cancellation period for the experience reserved. (*Fees may be higher for certain experiences.

What is group gifting?Group gifting is the process of chipping in and sharing the cost of a gift with friends or family in order to get someone a gift. Collected contributions are pooled together and in the end a gift recipient receives an electronic Gift Card for the total value of all contributions.
I started a group gift. How do I know when the people I invited make their contributions? You will be sent an email and a notification will be displayed on your Group Gift Management screen each time an invitee contributes to the group gift.
How do I keep track of the goal amount for a group gift that I organize? As each invitee contributes to the group gift, the notification email you receive will indicate the goal, along with the current amount contributed.
If the goal has not been reached for a gift that I organize as the delivery date approaches, what can I do? You will be sent periodic reminders via email as the delivery date for the group gift approaches. The reminders will include the goal amount and the amount contributed to the gift as of that date. If you feel that the goal will not be met, you can invite more friends to contribute, send reminders to invitees who have not yet contributed, or even extend the delivery date. All of this can be done from the gift management screen. A link to the gift management screen is included in each reminder.
What happens if we don’t collect enough money? Or we collect too much? This is not a problem! If enough money wasn’t collected to pay for the selected item, the recipient can pay the difference with other payment means, or select a different item. If more than enough money was collected, the recipient can buy a different item, or buy a second item with the extra funds.
Will anyone see the amount of each contribution? Only the gift organizer sees the amount of each contribution. The gift recipient and their friends will only see the total amount of the gift card, even when more than one friend has contributed. However, if a contribution is made after the gift card has already been delivered but not yet claimed, the recipient would be aware of the addition to the original gift's value.
Is there a limit on how many people can contribute to a gift card? There is no defined limit on how many people can contribute to a group gift. However, contributions to each group gift are limited to $1,000.00.
How will I know if the recipient has claimed the gift for a group gift that I organize? You will be sent an email notification when the recipient claims the group gift. You may also receive a notification if the recipient has not claimed the gift after a period of time. Should that occur, you will be given the chance to send a reminder email.
How long do you have to wait to use an eGift Card after it is “Claimed”? Typically, eGift Cards can be used immediately after they are Claimed, but, in some cases, it could take up to 24 hours before it is available for use.
Where can an eGift Card be used? You can use your eGift Card online at www.XperienceDays.com
Do eGift Cards expire or have any fees?No, purchased eGift Cards do not expire or have any fees associated with them unless specifically stated on the card itself or in any terms associated with a promotion or offer.
Can I use more than one eGift Card at a time? Yes, you may use more than one Card per transaction online, unless specifically stated on the card itself or in any terms associated with a promotion or offer.
Do I have to use Facebook to organize, contribute to or redeem a group gift?The eGifter for Facebook application requires that the gift organizer, contributors, and recipient all be Facebook users. For all other eGifter applications, logging in with Facebook is an option, but not required, for the gift organizer, contributors, or gift recipient. In these cases you can use the system by creating an account with your email address and a password.
