Holiday Gift Card Bonuses

Gift Cards
•••

Erin Huffstetler

Planning to give gift cards this Christmas? Buy from one of these businesses, and you'll snag a little extra bonus gift card for yourself (or someone on your list).

Some of these deals are good only if you purchase gift cards before December 26th, but many run through the end of December or early January. You'll need to make your gift card purchases directly from the company offering them, and some details may have changed, so be sure to double-check the bonus promotion details before making your purchase.

Please also note that many of the bonus card offerings are promotional cards rather than true gift cards, and unlike gift cards, these special promotion cards have expiration dates. Free money is always great, but In many cases, these promotional bonus cards are redeemable only for a few weeks or a few months.

Once you get your promotional card, add its expiration date to your calendar so that you don't miss out on using your free bonus card. Check with the vendor to verify usage dates.
