More than two billion passenger trips are likely to be made in China between 7 January and 15 February, as people celebrate being able to travel free from the past three years of Covid lockdowns and restrictions. Chun Yun, as it’s known, refers to the period of 40 days when the world’s biggest annual migration takes place, as people criss-cross the country to be with family and friends to mark the New Year. It’s also a time for giving and receiving gifts.

You don’t need to be Chinese to celebrate China’s New Year. And Glint customers don’t need to shop either in-person or on-line. If you have a Glint account gift-giving is simplicity itself, no matter how far you might be from your loved ones. You can use your account to give something that everyone loves – gold (outside the US) or currency (within the US). Send gold or currency instantly, to another Glint account holder, directly from your mobile phone, and free of charge!

It’s very easy. Open the app and click on the Glint it! button in the menu bar at the top. You can add a message too and review your transaction before sending gold or currency. So no more taking back presents or fussing about what to give – let them decide what to get with your gift!
