I need a decent site to send somebody an ecard for their birthday.

I tried bluemountain.com in both FF and IE, but it complains about not being able to set a cookie, and I'm not blocking cookies.

Free or free trial works for me.

Thanks in advance.

I just use Hallmark.com. They have some nice cards, and there are plenty of free ones.

Thanks.

I looked at hallmark.com after you suggested it but I liked the one I found on bluemountain.com better.

I figured out how make it work. sypbot s&d blocks cookies from bluemountain.com because they allow third party cookies and content. You have to unblock them in "internet options" for IE to work, and probably somewhere similar for FF.

Now I have to remember to cancel my free trial before they charge my CC. :)

Anyway, my issue is solved, but if any of you have good suggestions for free ecard sites, please post them here.

For offbeat greetings, I love JiBJab. You can even put their mug (or yours) in the greeting.

They have Thanksgiving cards too. Have fun:rofl:

I use Jacquie Lawson cards...I do subscribe. Instead of sending them to people from her site, I send the card to myself, then forward to the people I want, as I find they will open something from me, rather than from some unknown site. Hopefully, this is OK to do to avoid problems of any kind.

I agree. Used to use them a lot in the past, but now I`m afraid to open them.

There are tons of bogus electronic greeting cards, which contain viruses and malware, being sent these days. I don't bother sending ecards any longer for fear that my recipients won't open them.

I have no qualms about opening greeting cards sent to me, as long as I recognize the sender's name. The postcard viruses always say something like, "You have received a greeting card from..... A friend, a neighbor.." but never have an actual name of a sender.

Yeah, I'm not a big ecard guy either, but in this case, I know my friend in Asia appreciated getting an ecard for her birthday.

Note that some of the e card web sites sell collected email addresses to spammers.

For this reason some people consider it rude to have others send them.

I second Jacquie Lawson. She doesn't have the same kind of stuff as Hallmark or American Greetings, but what she does have is awesome and always gets a great response. Also, the greeting card company sites fill what they send with spam and other junk. I paid for a year of American Greetings and really got ticked off when I saw what was included with the card. Lawson sends nothing but the card and tells the recipient in the subject line that there is a card from you.

What I also like about Lawson is the 'history'. You can look up which card you sent last year or 2 or 3 yrs. ago for birthdays, Christmas, etc.

I have been using www.birthdayalarm.com for years and really like it. It is free - you do have to sign up as a member, but at no cost.

The site has cards for all occasions. But what I really love about this site is that I put all my special occasions on a calendar and set how many days ahead I wanted to be reminded and how many times I want to be reminded. Now I receive automatic reminder e-mails about the special occasion coming up, so that I can send a card. Been a lifesaver for me - never forget a birthday any more.

Forgot to say: There is option of yearly membership for $13.95 where you can send as many cards as you want. But I don't do that. Don't really know how many cards you can send free per year, but I send about 5 cards a year and have never had to pay.
