Gift Card Weekend: Get More With Your Cards

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.


When you have that hard to buy for person on your list, many times you might go ahead and opt for a gift card to one of that person’s favorite retailers.  It really makes perfect sense because then they get to decide what they want to buy (saving time and hassle with returns).  However, do you ever wonder if that person remembered to actually buy something with those cards?  This year, they should remember because those gift cards can go further!

January 6 – 8, 2011 will be Gift Card Weekend.  When gift cards are redeemed at select retailers, those cards can bring with them bonuses!  These offers are slated to be really great – as in Black Friday Deals great!  It is the perfect time to get out and make that gift card work for you.

So, where will you find these deals?  The deals themselves are top secret, but some of the merchants include:

  • Applebee’s
  • JCPenney
  • Lowe’s
  • Bass Pro
  • Addidas
  • ….and more to come!

Another idea for gift cards is to pick up some for yourself if you need to shop after the holidays.  That way, you can even make your OWN dollars go even further when you can combine offers with the deep discounts you will find as a part of post-holiday markdowns!

So, mark your calendar for January 6-8, 2012 and make sure to follow them on Facebook as they share more details as they become available!
