How to Buy Holiday Gifts with Crypto
There are several easy ways to spend your crypto this year during the holidays:
- Spend your crypto as easily as cash with the BitPay Card
- Buy gift cards for your favorite brands via the BitPay App or Chrome Extension
- Spend crypto directly with retailers that accept Bitcoin and cryptocurrency via BitPay
Pay for Holiday Gifts with the BitPay Card
The BitPay Card works just like any other debit card. The only difference is that you fund your purchases from a crypto wallet instead of your bank account. Use the prepaid crypto card anywhere that MasterCard is accepted. Make your holiday purchases with crypto at your favorite shops in-store or online. Continue to fund everyday purchases and live on crypto even after the holidays are over.Get the Card

Spend your crypto and buy gift cards with BitPay. We’ve partnered with hundreds of your favorite retailers and brands. View our Merchant Directory to see where you can buy gift cards with crypto.
Buy gift cards in the BitPay Wallet app: Once you’ve connected an active wallet within the app or funded the BitPay Wallet, then simply navigate to the Gift Cards section of the app. Select the merchant and enter the amount of crypto you’d like to spend.
