One way to stretch your savings at stores is by taking advantage of special bonus deals for gift cards that come around during the holidays. This is a great strategy for those stores where it’s hard to find sales or specific items that are on your Christmas list or just a much-needed item that never go on sale. Or maybe the latest technology device that came out that won’t be on sale for quite some time! All it takes is a little strategizing to figure out how to maximize these gift cards to your advantage throughout the year.
These bonus gift cards are also a great way to save on dining out. If you have a particular restaurant (or several restaurants) that you enjoy going to during the year, then buy those gift cards ahead so you can receive the bonus coupon or gift card. If you have coupons to use at the restaurant later, that will also give you additional savings on top of the gift card savings.
*And this is even more critical this year to help support the restaurant industry – help them out by buying gift cards NOW to support them & then use them later in the year. They need the income now so they don’t have to shut down permanently, so these make great gifts or just buy now for your family to use later!
Just make sure to read the fine print on the offers first, as there may be certain restrictions of when you have to use the gift cards (they may have only a limited amount of time to use the gift cards).
