EL PASO, Texas — Sometimes a gift card is just a gift card, and sometimes it's a record.
On Aug. 11, Alon Brands Inc. officially became the holder of the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Gift Card. An event marking the feat was held at the ALON/7-Eleven on 320 S. Americas Ave in El Paso.
On hand for the event were representatives from Alon Brands and the Guinness World Records — who took the official measurements, putting the accomplishment in the books.
As part of the festivities, Alon presented El Paso resident Andrew Saldivar, who was randomly selected as the lucky winner, with a gift card and $10,000 worth of ALON gas and merchandise. Other event attendees won giveaways, including $5,000 worth of ALON gift cards, an Xbox and other prizes.
