2018 Gift Card Bonus Offers – Restaurants and Retail

Gift Card Bonus Offers - Restaurants and Retail
One of my favorite deals during the holiday season is Gift Card Bonus Offers! Many restaurants and stores offer a bonus when you buy a gift card. i.e. Buy a $25 gift card and get a $5 reward card for yourself for free. So it’s a great time to not only buy gift cards for gifts, but also to buy them for places you visit often already. It’s like free money! Just keep in mind that many of the bonus cards are only valid through January or March, so don’t forget to use them. Thanks to Mission to Save for all the updates!

Also, keep in mind that you can buy gift cards from many restaurants via Amazon! While you won’t get a bonus, it’s an easy way to order a card for someone’s favorite restaurant without having to make a trip there to pick it up.

Here is a list of all the 2018 Gift Card Bonus Offers we could find. If you know of any additional offers, please let us know in a comment below. Happy shopping!

Comments

  1. I love these bonus offers, especially on restaurants we eat at year-round!

  2. I didn’t know about any of these and it’s great to have them all in one place. Thanks for the list!

  3. I have to admit, we’re ones to stock up this time of year because of the bonuses. Especially when you combine them to pay for special offers!

  4. Some of those offers would be terrific to take advantage of. I know a few people that prefer to give and get only gift cards.

  5. These are great deals. I’m especially drawn to the Half Price Books one, since I love books so much. Can never have too many books.

  6. I was a little too excited when I saw that Target gift cards were 10% off last weekend. You can only imagine my thrill to see a whole list of hot deals! You’re making my day!

  7. That is so awesome! I’m a big gift card giver this time of year, so being able to get my money’s worth on them is always a plus for me. Thanks!

  8. There are some really good deals for gifts cards with money back. I really like it when I get a gift card and I get perks with it!
