I'm a gift card lover. I don't particularly like to give them. As my son says, "I'd rather have cash. What if there's a good deal somewhere else?" Poor kid. He has too much of me in him. The truth is, I like to buy them for myself. Yes, I said it. I buy gift cards for myself. Before you feel too sorry for me and think I'm more pathetic than I am, let me explain. There are some great gift card bonus deals. To me, it's like free money if I'm going to spend money there anyway. (I will highlight more specific restaurants soon. I just haven't had time to pull them all together. Stay tuned!) Here's are two great opportunities: (I like them since Amazon is included with both and we're always spending money on Amazon.) Safeway: (shown on the bottom of the front page of their Wed. ad)
Spend $150 on qualifying gift cards, get $25 off a $50 purchase.
Offer is good 11/14/12 – 11/21/12.
I'm not positive when the $25 off will expire, but it says to use on "next shopping trip."
I would buy it first and then buy your groceries.
Gift cards include:
Amazon.com®, Bath & Body Works®, DSW, Lowe's®, iTunes®, Sears®, Toys*R*Us®, Regal Entertainment Group®, Applebee's®, AMC Theatres®, JCPenney®, Macy's, Nike, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Sephora®, SpaFinder®, Groupon.com, American Eagle Outfitters, BassPro Shops®, Buffalo Wild Wings®, Brinker International®, The Cheesecake Factory®, Kohl's®, Michaels®, PetSmart®, Olive Garden®, Red Lobster(TM) and Staples®.
Bashas': (shown on the bottom of p.7 of their Wed. ad)
Spend $50 on qualifying gift cards, save $5 instantly
Spend $150 on qualifying gift cards, save $20 instantly
Offer is good 11/14/12 – 11/27/12.
Note: I just did this and it's not automatic. The cashier will need to key in a code. Tell them to look at the bottom of p.7 of their ad for the code.
There will be more included, but pictured are:
Amazon, Bass Pro Shop, Macy's, Nike, and Old Navy
Amazon, here we come!
Update: Chelsea reminded me that Fry's is doing 4x fuel points 11/18/12 – 12/9/12. You will accumulate points to save on Shell or Fry's gas. (Thanks, Chelsea!)
