Frugal Tip: Buying Gift Cards
This is the time of year for buying gifts. And most people overlook giving restaurant gift cards due to thinking they are "not personal" enough for gifts.
This is the time of year that most restaurants, retail stores and online retailers offer bonuses when you purchase their gift cards. So every year around this time, I purchase several gift cards. I am able to score bonuses when buying the gift cards. I do not hand these out as presents for the Holidays, I save these cards for mine and the hubby's date nights.
This makes it more frugal throughout the year for those special nights out on the town. Not only can I score some cards at a discount, but I also earn bonus items as well. This makes for a win-win situation.
We like to go out on the town every once in a while, and I will also pair these gift cards with coupons. This makes for a very special evening...and a frugal one at that.
Have you ever bought these holiday gift cards for yourself? Or do you give them away as gifts and keep the bonus certificates for yourself?
