Since the Lunar New Year is based on the phases of the moon, its start date varies from year to year (with reference to the Gregorian calendar). This upcoming Lunar New Year's Day falls on February 8th, 2016. It will not only mark the beginning of a new year, but also the ending of winter and the anticipated arrival of spring, hence also known as the Spring Festival. As their way of embracing cultural diversity among employees and customers, Best Buy has once again launched a special Asian-inspired gift card with "Happy New Year" written in both English and Chinese.
Do you have friends or clients who identify themselves strongly with Asian cultures? If you would like to surprise them with a sweet gift but are not familiar with their cultural taboos and traditions, this special edition Best Buy gift card would guarantee to be a safe bet. With so many electronics and household items to choose from at Best Buy, it would be fairly easy for your gift recipients to find something they love. Order a physical gift card here, or an egiftcard here (please scroll to the right until you see the card as pictured above under the “Holiday” tab). The cards are only available for purchase through February 13th, 2016.
Best Buy also offers a Chinese Happy Birthday e-Gift Card that you may use beyond the Lunar New Year. Find the card here under the “Birthday” tab.
