Tips on Getting the Best Gift Card Deals

Looking for a deal on gift cards? Below you’ll find information on upcoming gift card sales, discounts, “buy one get one free” offers and more. If there’s a way to save money with gift cards, then sign me up!

Here’s a few tips on how to work the deals below:

  • Updated Weekly! Follow #GiftCardDeals on social media and bookmark this post because I will update it regularly with the best gift card deals in town–and online.
  • While Supplies Last. Most deals will be available while supplies last. So if you click on a deal and don’t find the savings, then inventory may already be gone.
  • Check For Restrictions. Lastly, be sure to check for any restrictions such as where the card can be used and how it will be delivered so there are no surprises after you buy.

If you find other gift card promotions, let me know about them in the comments below or at @GCGirlfriend on Twitter. Or post them on Twitter using the #GiftCardDeals hashtag so we can all find out about these great gift card savings together.

Happy Gift Carding!
