I recently learned about a new program from Borders Rewards called “Overwhelming Offers”. They offer E-Gift Cards at discounts up to 50% off. The catch is that there are only a limited number of gift cards available, so you have to be quick to snag them. The way it works is Borders Rewards will offer various gift cards at 50% off & Borders Rewards members need to sign in & “check in” to this site to help “unl0ck” the deals. The better the gift card offer, the more people who are needed to check in that day before the deal will be unlocked. It looks like they offer deals on most weekdays (but not weekends or holidays).
I have not personally used the Overwhelming Offers site before, but I will definitely be keeping an eye on it now to see how it works. I know that several of you readers have used it & have mentioned it on the Facebook Fan page, so I decided to share it with all of you so you could check it out if you were interested. Let us know if you’ve used it & what your experience has been like. You can find out more details about the program using the Frequently Asked Questions page.
Here are the gift cards being offered today, Thursday December 23rd:

There are 3 offers that have already been unlocked – 50% off at Foot Locker, 50% off at FTD Flowers & 50% off at Spa Finder & those have already been claimed. In order to get the popular gift cards, you need to keep checking the site to see how close they are to “unlocking” another gift card & then try to snag it quickly.
They also offer “Newbie Offers” which are offers available to those who have never won a gift card thru the Overwhelming Offers site. Today’s “Newbie Offer” is 50% off a Macy’s E-Gift Card – $25 for a $50 gift card to be used at Macys.com. This offer is available in a little over half an hour & available to the first 400 people (so it will go quickly). It looks like they may offer different newbie offers throughout the day.
There are also Anytime Offers, which is a special offer that looks like it’s available until it’s claimed. Today’s Anytime offer is 50% off a Walmart E-Gift Card (to be used online only). It’s $25 for a $50 gift card & this offer will be available in about 45 minutes.
If you have any last-minute gifts on your list, a discounted E-Gift Card might be the perfect gift to try to snag today! Let us know if you have any luck!
