It is August and that means school is starting or will soon be starting in your area and soon to follow will be the rush to get ready for the holidays. According to a Survey on CashCard.com 62% of consumers say they would like to receive a gift card and 93% of consumers say they would prefer a $25 gift card over a gift valued at $25 so what this means for me and most likely you, we have a lot of gift cards to purchase in the next few months. What I love about buying gift cards is that there are so many ways to purchase them and earn rewards. For example right now at your neighborhood Food Lion you will receive $10 off your next order when you purchase $50 worth of gift cards from the list below.
- Red Robin
- LL Bean
- Burger King
While gift cards are great gifts they are also great to use all year long for yourself. Stock up on gift cards during this promo for purchases you make everyday. We just purchased a new home so Lowe’s is our favorite hangout so buying a Lowe’s gift card to use like cash is a no brainer. We are all so busy during this time of year so we are going to have to grab a quick meal to eat every now and then while we are out so add a Burger King gift card to your next shopping trip and get paid for buying something you would be buying anyways. Gift cards make great side items for birthday gifts, buy a new Xbox game and give an Xbox gift card along with it.
Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back! Capital One QuicksilverOne®, AMEX EveryDay®, BankAmericard Cash Rewards and Citi® Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases. (This is a huge benefit of purchasing gift cards at grocery stores rather than drug stores!). Here is the savings in black and white, $10 off coupon + $3 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases = $13 in savings on a $50 gift card! This offer is only valid from 8/7/16-8/20/16, coupon will be presented at checkout and more details can be found at your local store. While you are here be sure to enter to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Good luck!
