Most of the gift cards I buy, I spend on Christmas gifts, or to buy gifts later because I usually only grab those deals at places that I personally shop already.
Head over to Borders.com and spend $50, either 2 $25 GCs or 1 $50 GC, in gift card purchases online and receive a $10 Borders Bonus Coupon that can be used in stores. This coupon does come with a time constraint on it though, so only use this deal if you will use the coupon before it expires.
I don't need any bribes to buy shoes, but when they are there you can bet I will be there to take advantage of them! Like the Borders deal though, you need to use the reward by a certain date which might be an issue for some, but a convenient excuse to go shoe shopping again for the rest of us! At DSW, spend $50 on a GC and get a $10 bonus GC.
Steak 'N Shake
Buy $20 in gift cards and get a $5 bonus GC! This is a great Christmas stocking stuffer deal for teens, or a great way to save some dough for a fun dinner out with the kids.
Between now and Christmas Kohl's has several shopping weekends where you can get a $5 GC to use when you spend $50 in purchases. Multiple GCs can be earned for every fifty dollars you spend so shopping for Christmas Pjs, outfits and shoes for yourself or the family can earn you some money back!
For every $25 in GCs you buy at CVS you get a $5 printout redeemable at CVS! There is always something you can get at the drugstore, so you might as well grab a few cards to purchase items with in the future and snag some extra cash to help the budget.
These are just a few of the gift card deals that are available right now for Christmas, so keep your eyes open. I have or will be taking advantage of all of these this Holiday and because of the deal there is no shopping guilt attached :)
