This is a sponsored post on how to save money with gift cards. All thoughts are my own.
Christmas is right around the corner. I can not believe it. How did the year go so fast? Am I the only one who feels like summer was here yesterday and we were all thinking about getting in one last vacation or get away before the kids started school? It is crazy how fast the days go. But no matter if we are ready or not, Christmas and the holidays are just about here. And that means we need to start thinking about presents.
I am the type of person that loves to give presents. I have a very long list of people that I like to give gifts too. But it adds up fast. My giving doesn’t always agree with my wallet. That is why I am always looking to a way to save money here and there. You would be surprised how quickly it can add up, by just cutting something here and there that I barely miss, or when I am looking for great deals. before I know it, there is more than enough to give one more gift.
Gift cards are a great way to give gifts. I can get them in any amount. They are gifts that I know my friends and family can use. And I like to try to stock up when I find a deal or special incentive. Right now, Acme is offering a great deal on buying gift cards.
Starting 11/18 until 12/1, anyone can earn $15 off their next shopping trip when they purchase $100 in select gift cards at Acme.
So buy loading up on gift cards during this special I can take care of buying gift for some of my the people on my list, like this.
Lowes: My brothers are always at Lowes. They have all kinds of DIY projects going on. Not only does Lowes sell things for DIY projects, they also have garden supplies in the summer, pool supplies, pond supplies and even Christmas decoration. They have way more than just lumber and nails, like a lot of people think.
Best Buy: Who doesn’t love Best Buy? With all of the tech gear, electronic, cell phones, tv, and even cd, movies and video games, someone can always find something they love at Best Buy.
Itunes, Xbox, and Starbucks: These are 2 stores that people love. Whether they are avid user, or people who love it, but hate to spend the money on themselves in order to use them, gift cards to these stores will make people smile.
Toys R Us: Kids can be hard to shop for. They love a toy on day and the next want nothing to do with it. Plus you never know what they already have. Buy giving a gift card to Toy R Us, kids get exactly what they want. Even better, if they go right after Christmas, there are a lot after holiday sales and the credit goes farther.
Amex: So you aren’t sure who want to give a present to, or not sure where they will want to spend it. Give them an American Express gift card. It will let them use as they see fit. Plus, you can get a few of them to just have ready for gifts even when you don’t know who you are giving to.
