To get a Simon gift card online, you can shop for the card online at the Simon website at Simon.com. Choose the card design and network, and pay to load the card with money. The card arrives in a few days by mail, according to Simon.com.
There are many card designs that allow buyers to personalize a Simon gift card, notes Simon.com. After choosing the design, choose from either the Visa or American Express network. There are no fees for either network, the funds do not expire, and there is no fee to replace a lost or stolen card.
It is possible to place between $10 and $500 on a Visa card and from $20 to $225 on an American Express card, explains Simon.com. As of 2015, in addition to the cost of loading the card, each Visa card has a $3.95 fee and a shipping cost. The American Express card has no fee for the card, but the shipping costs are more expensive than the Visa card. Before checking out, there is an opportunity to write a message to the recipient and the option to send the card directly to the person's home or business. The site also offers stock messages, such as "Happy Birthday" or "Merry Christmas."
