Official Gift Card Deal Thread

This is the season where many restaurants have gift card deals, and various retail and iTunes gift card deals happen all the time; so I thought it might be nice to have a one-stop-shop for them all.

I had this post all set to go with dozens of deals and then lost it all in an internet glitch, so I'll be saving it every couple minutes as I work on it today.

I'll keep this post updated as new deals are posted.

Re: Official Gift Card Deal Thread

Awesome thread, and great job, Trevor! My favorite is:
McDonalds - buy a $20 gift card and get a coupon book with $150 of mediocre other retail coupons


I'm sure I'll take advantage of the Taco Bell deal for sure (multiple times). Possibly one or two others...

Re: Official Gift Card Deal Thread

^ Yeah, I was excited about the McDonald's deal when I saw the sign for it in the drive through lane; but iirc all the coupons were the standard coupons you see everywhere, like $20 off a $75 Footlocker purchase and similar crap. I could be forgetting a decent one, but I remember thinking there was nothing useful in the little book.

And yes, I have used that Taco Bell one too many times already.

Anyone know of a current good iTunes card deal?

I saw something from Coinstar recently about putting $40 worth of change into one of their machines and getting a $50 card/certificate for iTunes. I don't see anything on their site about it...maybe it expired, though it wasn't that long ago that I read something about it. Someone else might have details.

Thanks, Bobaray. I knew I had seen the offer within the last few days. Hope I didn't get anyone too excited about that one.

VERY HELPFUL THREAD! It looks like each Melting Pot may have it's own promotions, but I'm not finding any gift card specials. Do you have a link?

Re: Official Gift Card Deal Thread

If you buy anything through iTunes, Target has a pretty sweet deal right now, but it expires tomorrow.

They have $60 worth (four $15 cards) on sale for $54, then you get a free $10 Target card with the below coupon. Don't forget to use your Target debit or credit card for the extra 5% off.

Re: Official Gift Card Deal Thread

Steak 'N Shake - buy $20 in gift cards, receive a $5 certificate. Initially saw this at one of their locations and there's some fine print...think the deal runs through 12/31, but you have to use the $5 certificate during a particular time frame (beginning in January). Checked the website and the deal is there, but no additional details are given.

I guess McDonalds is not having a calander this year? I already got 6 chick-a-fila calander cards registered. Be interesting to see how the new format works out...
