There’s a long and contested story behind the OK Visa Gift Card. This is important, because OK is the best-known American word or expression worldwide, OK? Conflicting stories attribute the origin of OK to the Greek and Choctaw languages and to President Martin Van Buren’s membership in the Old Kinderhook men’s club. Members were considered “OK.” The consensus is that a Boston newspaper editor reportedly coined the term as a tongue-in-cheek editing symbol for “all correct,” with the deliberate misallocation of letters. The hand sign is more certain: the thumb and forefinger indicate the letter O and the other three are the symbol for K. Your friends will think OK Visa Gift Cards are better than OK.
