The holidays are a great time to take advantage of special gift card promotions that take place. For those hard-to-buy-for people, gift cards are sometimes what they request, but it’s difficult to find a way to save on gift cards. So, I love to find these special promotions as ways to save.
You don’t have to get these gift card deals as gifts. Take advantage of the deal to save you money on purchases you may already be making. Example – If you are thinking of doing a project at home and will be going to Lowe’s, this would be a great time to get a little extra out of that purchase.
