Have you ever grabbed a gift card as a last minute birthday, holiday or graduation gift? Then you are not alone. And I bet it’s not just because you don’t know the recipient well and have no idea what to buy them. It’s most likely because gift cards have made the gift searching process a whole lot easier and quicker for millions of people.
In fact over the past few years gift cards have become more and more popular as gift ideas for not only acquaintances but friends and family as well. And with a few simple steps, you can buy gift cards at a discount and save for the holidays.
Buy Gift Cards at a Discount When You Shop at Albertsons and Safeway
Did you know that gift cards are sold just about everywhere these days? from major retailers to your favorite local boutique. Grocery stores even have them too. And if you are a savvy shopper like me, you won’t ever have to pay full price for a gift card. This is something I have been doing for a long time and it works as long as you shop smart, meaning only purchase gift cards you know the gift recipient will use.
Right now you can double or triple dip on savings when you shop for select gift cards at Albertsons and Safeway through 11/3. Here’s How:
- Earn a Coupon: Get a $10 coupon toward your next shopping order when you buy $100 or more in gift cards from stores like: Amazon.com, Macy’s, Cabelas, Sports Authority, Overstock.com, Nike and eBay
- Earn Credit Card Rewards:By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back!
- Earn Fuel Rewards: Safeway stores offer double-fuel points for every dollar you spend on gift cards redeemable at Safeway, Chevron, or Texaco stations.
Still unsure of how to take advantage of this offer? Now, here’s the math!
$10 off coupon + $6 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases + $3 savings when you fill up with your Safeway fuel rewards($.20 off per gallon @ 15 gallons) = $19 in savings! Now, this my friends is a deal you don’t want to miss out on.
The holiday season is quickly approaching, so don’t wait until the last minute to stock up on gift cards for everyone on your list. Trust me your wallet will be much heavier, and you will be much happier if you buy gift cards at a discount now.
Please note: Coupon presented at checkout. Double fuel rewards on gift cards purchased at Safeway only. $1 = 2 points. Don’t forget to use your Safeway Club Card! Some credit cards may have limits on the rewards you can earn at the grocery. See store for more details.
