If you plan to buy holiday gift cards to give to friends or family members for Christmas, you might as well choose cards that give you a nice bonus in return!
Typical gift card rewards range from a $5.00 bonus for each $25 gift card purchased to a $10.00 bonus for each $50 gift card purchased. One local restaurant in my area is giving out $60 in bonuses for every $60 purchased!
Often these bonus rewards have a catch, so be sure to check the terms and conditions. The most popular catch is that your reward is valid for a limited time, and often not valid until after January 1. Many gift card bonuses I’ve received in the past were valid from January 1 – February 28, or something similar.
If you usually buy restaurant gift cards at a local grocery store, drugstore, or gas station, or even online at Amazon.com’s gift card store, please keep in mind that these holiday bonuses are typically available only when purchased from the restaurant directly, or on their website.
