This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gift Card Weekend. All opinions are 100% mine.
Giftcards are often better than cash. After all, Uncle Sam isn’t likely to replace a lost or stolen card but many retailers do just that if you register your giftcard. New laws allow them to never expire in some states, which means no more expiration dates or fees for many giftcards which can drain or deplete the balance. I know I have a stash of giftcards I rely on when I see a great find at a store or to reduce the cost of an item which may be more of a splurge than I have planned.
Which is why I am so excited to tell you about this Gift Card Weekend opportunity. Gilbert the Gift Card machine is giving away giftcards in anticipation of Gift Card Weekend and you can enter to win one by going to their Facebook page and hitting up the “like” button. However you can earn extra entries by getting your friends to enter as well. December 19th through the 23rd the gift card being given away is a $20 Sephora card. Perfect for a bit of post-holiday pampering. So make sure you enter and check back often as they are giving out gift cards the entire month, for various participating merchants.
What is Gift Card Weekend you ask? Its a magical time between January 6th and 8th when giftcards become more than face value. Its the ultimate bonus buy, without the hassle. Purchasers before Gift Card Weekend will gain an added value in the form of an extra card or a higher denomination card. You see alot of these offers if you’ve been out holiday shopping: buy $20 get $5, buy $50 get $10, etc. This is no different. The bonus benefit comes when the recipient of that gift card goes to redeem it during Gift Card Weekend and also finds extra offers. Recipients can click on their retailer of choice and see what bonus offers are available when they redeem their gift card. With retailers like JCPenny, Regal Cinema, Subway, Sephora, Applebee’s, Bass Pro Shops, Adidas, Buca di Beppo, Lowe’s, Spa Finder, Marriot, and Giant Eagle there is bound to be something for just about everyone on your list (except maybe Aunt Eunice who thinks its impersonal).
I don’t know about you, but a chance at a free gift card just for liking a page on Facebook, plus more chances just for telling friends about it sounds like a pretty great offer. I know I will be stopping by regularly to enter for gift cards and information about the possible offers for Gift Card Weekend. After all, most people like to receive gift cards as it gives them the chance to pick exactly what they want, save them up for a big purchase, or use them to scrape sticker residue off of books. So get your shopping savy behinds over to the Facebook page and get started by “like“ing them now!
