If you're like me, there are some friends that are just plain hard to buy for. Rather than getting them something they may not like I love to give them gift cards to stores or restaurants or even for a spa day to just relax. After all, 73% of people would rather get a gift card so they can pick out what they really want!
I know for me a gift card is great! I'd love to go out to eat with my husband every so often but we can't fit that in our budget right now. That's why I love gift cards and wish my family would take the hint and give us these for gifts!
The infographic from Gowallet below gives a lot of great tips about how you can make gift cards even more useful for the person receiving the gift card AND the person giving it.
Watch for discounts on gift cards from your favorite retailers and restaurants and think about buying a few. You can often get a big discount by buying them at the same time.
Buy gift cards at the grocery store and earn gas reward points to save as much as $1 a gallon on gas at major stations. Like this deal Safeway has right now that offers you 4X points when you buy gift cards there! http://www.safeway.com/
Got a gift card you didn't use or don't want? You can trade them in or exchange them at sites like CardPool.comhttp://cardpool.com or sell them at a discount. How awesome is that?
