 How to hack your holiday with FlipGive


"If there is one thing we love about the Holidays, it's to bring all the family together to decorate the house. We always go all in and though it would also be a great way to give back to Peter's team! We raised $50 last year and are doing it again this year." said Matthew S from Austin, TX.

Nothing sets the festive mood like decorating the house for the Holidays. Whether it is going to be wreaths and centerpieces from Lynch Creek, Christmas trees and outdoor Christmas Decorations from Home Depot or Indoor decorations from Walmart, spending money to decorate your home can help you earn big time!

Buy Teacher/Coaches Gifts 

" Buying gift cards has been an instrumental part of our FlipGive Strategy. Last Christmas, I bought Bath & Body Works and Panera Bread gift cards for all my kid's teachers. I didn't even think twice about it but they all loved what they got and I got to raise money for Alex's softball team." Melanie R from Spokane, WA.

Teachers and Coaches are a great part of our kids’ lives, and the Holiday season is the perfect moment to give back. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be hard! Get them one of our selected gift cards such as App Store and Itunes, Ulta Beauty and more to earn money for your team. Show your appreciation for the ones that matter and reward your team at the same time!

Buy Hostess Gifts 


Chances are, you are going to attend at least one dinner during this Holiday Season and hostess gifts are also a great way to earn for your team. Instead of going for the classic bottle of wine, check out our Host Gift Guide. Dinnerware, Table books, Decor Accents and Gift Sets - you name it, The list of earning possibilities for your team are endless!

Buy Holiday Outfits

Who says celebration, also says new outfits! Whether it is your ugly Christmas sweater from Fanatics or sparkling party outfits, FlipGive offers a wide range of fashion and beauty brands such as Anthropologie, Dynamite, Forever 21, Sephora and more.

Secret Santa 

Are you doing a Secret Santa gift challenge with your team this year? If not, you should! Not only it is a fun way to engage and have a fun time with your team, but it will also motivate everyone to get onboard and shop exclusively on FlipGive to earn money collectively. You can organize a Secret Santa event through the app, and make it an even better-earning opportunity by choosing one of the restaurants we carry.



What feels greater than welcoming all your family and friends into your home for the Holidays? Welcoming them and earning money back on all your hosting purchases! Groceries: Check. Tableware: Check. Table Decorations: Check. Everything you need and more is available on FlipGive for this Holiday season.  


"Last year, we browsed on FlipGive's website and discovered that we could also book hotels stays. That was perfect timing for us because we booked our family ski trip for the Holidays and made $113.23 for Laura's Hockey team on hotels and car rentals!" said Daniel R, from Southfield, MI.  

Feeling like you need a vacation? Or just traveling to visit the family for Christmas? No matter what it is, we carry a wide range of travel options including Hotels.com and Expedia

Buy and Wrap Presents


" Being the mother of five boys comes with a lot of expenses. That is why FlipGive comes so handy, especially during the Holiday season. Last year, I raised over $100 on their toys only! I told the team to do the same and we ended up raising over $1000 on Christmas shopping. Now that the team actively uses FlipGive, We can't wait to see what we are going to raise this year!" said Jesse S from Minneapolis, MN.

And of course, last but certainly not least, the best way to earn money for your team this season is through all the presents you are going to get for your family and kids. Think about everyone you’ll be buying presents for: your kids, your significant other, your parents, your siblings, your in-laws, your friends, your cousins, the list goes on and on. Whether it’s a new phone or laptop, clothes, or gift cards like Barnes & Nobles and AMC theatre, you will be able to find it all on FlipGive. There is really not much more to it, give to the ones you love the most and we will give back to your team.   


Enjoy your Holidays and earn back for your team!

    if I buy Indigo egiftcards can I take that into a store to purchase a plastic gift card? sometime people would prefer giving a coloured gift card in an envelope vs. an ecard.

    Does Walmart shopping have to be online shopping?
