Have y'all started seeing gift card promotions to entice you to buy from specific retailers? Did you know you can buy them for your own use? and use the bonus? Many retailers will let you use them at the same time of purchase.
Here are some of my favorite promotions right now:
Borders: Buy $50 Gift Card, get $10 Gift Card
Benihana's: Buy $50 Gift Card, get $10 Gift Card
La Madeline: Buy $25 Gift Card, Get $5 Gift Card
