When driving around this weekend, I noticed that many restaurants are still running gift card deals, such as buy $25 in gift cards at El Chico’s and get a $5 gift card for you. If you have a favorite restaurant that you and your family frequent, now might be a good time to cash in on these deals. Most restaurants won’t allow you to use the gift cards immediately and these deals don’t typically run for a long time after Christmas. The added bonus of these deals is that almost every restaurant will still allow you to use a coupon when you are dining and using a gift card to purchase the meal, which will double your savings.
The only trick with gift cards—if you don’t use them, you’ll lose them!
