Sling TV is starting to roll out a long awaited feature that many of their competitors have had. Yes, they are finally offering gift cards.
Now you no longer need a credit card to buy Sling TV, and you can even give the gift of contract-free streaming this Christmas. Though the real advantage is the ability to subscribe to Sling TV without the need to have a credit card—something that an estimated 20% of Americans do not have according to CreditCards.com, which is a number that has been increasing since 2008.
You can find the gift cards today at most Walmart stores. Later this month, you’ll also be able to find Sling TV gift cards on Walmart.com and at Best Buy and GameStop stores, with the option to give up to $100 with each gift card.
Sling TV is betting that the gift cards starting at $25 will be a great gift this fall in an effort to help drive more subscribers to the service.
This new gift card option puts Sling TV in line with other services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, which all offer gift cards that can be used for their services.
