Give the gift of WordPress credits

Make someone happy this holiday season with WordPress credits that can be used to buy something nice for their WordPress.com blog!

It’s really easy. Simply go to the Upgrades page in your Dashboard, click on Gifts and fill in the form. You can send credits to existing users of the site, or to those without an account. Enter their username or email address and the credits will be whisked along in no time at all!

There’s no minimum limit on the number of credits so this might be a good time to thank your favourite blogger with a few credits, or if someone has really helped get your blog off to a running start why not send them a small gift?

If you have any more ideas, I’d love to hear about them!

Update 1: Gifting has been removed, but may return in the future.

    With no Christmas bonus from work(I am sure this is a common thing nowadays),I cannot afford to give any bloggers something this year. Perhaps next year! Thx for putting the option there.:)

    Everyone else has “Gift certificates”, why not wordpress.com?

    This brings up a heck of an idea: credit transfer. Replace your paypal donation button with a “wordpress credit transfer” button ;)

    Actually, I think this would probably be more work to implement than it would be worth to the wordpress.com team, and not used that often, but it is an amusing idea.

    “Make someone happy this holiday season with WordPress credits that can be used to buy something nice for their WordPress.com blog!”

    Okay. I’d like to send some to that kid Sally Struthers has me supporting. Or had me supporting. I think his name is… Charlie? I don’t know. He might be an adult by now. I’ll look for his case number. I think his village has a computer. Unless it was destroyed in that eruption… or flood. Or something. When you send the card could you sign my name?
    Or… hey, wait a minute! I could just send the fifty bucks to a random village in the developing world and they can buy six thousand books, some pens and a few LED lights so they can read at night and maybe complete a correspondence course and learn a trade and make their village prosper and then their whole society will learn and grow by their example and then, with a little hard work and gumption, they will buy Google. Where’s my sandwich widjit?
