During Christmas 2010, 460 Argos stores began featuring Gift Card Mall and its retailer partner cards, including iTunes, Next, Debenhams, WHSmith and Runescape.

Due to the significant success, Argos has expanded the program into over 200 more UK stores and will be launching 39 stores in Ireland during Spring 2011. Additional cards joining Argos’ Gift Card Mall include Pizza Express, the digital content card IMVU, and three further iTunes products.
