Ways To Save On Gift Cards
22 March, 2012
When it comes to birthdays and holidays, gift cards are among the most common and most requested gifts.
A problem with gift cards is that you have to pay full price for them. On the other hand, when you are purchasing an actual item, for example, a sweater, after sales and coupons it's very possible to get a $25 gift for only $10.
So is there any way to get a deal on gift cards?
To get a good deal on a gift card you'll have to think outside the box a little bit. By that I mean you're not just going to walk up to the counter in a store and find your gift card with a big 50 percent off sale sign in front of it. But there are ways to save! Here are the top three ways to save on our gift card purchases:
- Have you ever heard of eCardExchange? It's the best way to buy or exchange gift cards on the Internet. It's a website that offers a convenient and safe way to get the most out of gift cards. All transactions are guaranteed, there are no fees and standard shipping is free.
Gift cards at eCardExchange can be purchased at up to a 45 percent discount.
- Another great way to save on gift cards is with online rewards programs such as Swagbucks or Superpoints. These sites offer many different gift cards (in addition to many other prizes) in values from $5 to $100 as rewards for being a member of their program and performing certain tasks. There is definitely a gift card for anyone on your list - JCPenney, Old Navy, Kmart, Amazon, Domino's, and many more. So start racking up those rewards points. You can't beat free!
- As you probably know, many grocery stores have gas rewards programs. When you spend a certain amount (usually $50) you get 10 cents off per gallon of gas.
Almost all grocery stores have a large selection of gift cards that can be purchased there. The next time you need to purchase a gift card consider buying it at the grocery store instead of the actual store the gift card is for.
While you won't be saving immediately on your gift card purchase, buying your gift card in the grocery store will help you save on gasoline in the future. To me, money saved is money saved, no matter where in your budget those savings occur.
Can't decide what gift card to buy someone. Well buy a gift card to eCardexchange.com and let your friends and family make there own choice and save big!
Happy Gift Carding,
