Red Cross offering $5 Amazon gift cards to blood donors

November 27, 2018

The American Red Cross is offering $5 Amazon.com gift cards to people who donate blood through Dec. 19.

The promotion coincides with the holiday shopping season, and a time when donations typically decline because regular donors’ schedules are interrupted, according to a news release from the Red Cross.

There are several blood donation opportunities available in Lincoln over the coming weeks, including Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Campus Recreation Center, 841 N. 14th St., and 2-7 p.m. Wednesday at Good Life Fitness in southeast Lincoln, 8601 Amber Hill Court.

Learn more, or schedule a time to donate by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767), visiting redcrossblood.org or downloading the American Red Cross Blood Donor smartphone app.
