Buy a gift card get a bonus!

I used to think giving gift certificates was a cop-out.  Until I got a lot older and wiser and realized that a carefully chosen gift card can be more thoughtful as a poorly-thought out gift of a singing trout (sorry–family joke crept in here).

This time of year, many retailers have gift card bonus buys.  Which means you can get a reward for your purchase.  Sometimes it’s a meal, or sometimes an extra gift card is issued.  It is important to note that there might be an expiration date on the bonus gift card so make sure you are aware of it when you make your purchase.

Here’s a list of some national and local places that will give you a bonus when you buy gift cards.  When it comes to national or chain-store deals, results may vary (meaning they may or may not offer the deal listed).  I suggest calling ahead to make sure since I did not have the time to call every place listed.
