Why do I have to view my Gift Card through an e-mail? Why can’t I view it from my account?

Sending an e-mail to view the Gift Card code adds an extra layer of security because it will deliver the e-mail and link only to the intended person. The e-mail is set to expire after 24 hours for added security as well. Should you miss the 24-hour window, you are always able to request a new gift card e-mail via your "My Gift Cards".
