Discount Gift Cards:  A Great Way to Save Money


Would you like to save 5%, 10%, or even 20% or more on major merchants?  You can, by purchasing gift cards at a discount!  Imagine you had to regularly purchase supplies or fill prescriptions at Walgreens.  If you spent $1,000 at the store over time, but instead of simply swiping your credit or debit card at the store, you spent a few minutes beforehand to purchase Walgreens gift cards at 10% off, you would save yourself $100-a nice sum of money for very little work!  If you needed to fix up your house, and required $10,000 worth of material at Home Depot, but purchased Home Depot gift cards at 10% off, you would have just saved $1,000.  (You can save even more if you make your purchases over the Internet using Ebates ; find out how here.)  Let us say that, to celebrate your saving $1000, you decided to go to a nice restaurant with your spouse, and you purchased a $100 gift card at 20% off-you would, in this manner, save $20 on your night out.  Purchasing discounted gift cards can save you money on everything from groceries to gas to electronics to sporting goods to home furnishings to clothing.

How can you get in on the savings?  A variety of companies buy gift cards at a discount and then resell them.  Cardpool has been in business since 2003 and is BBB rated.  All purchases, of whatever amount, include free USPS shipping.  Gift cards can be returned for a full refund, and the company guarantees that cards purchased will be valid at the merchant with the dollar amount specified for up to 100 days from the date of purchase, up to a maximum of $1000 per customer.  A website that compares prices for the purpose of buying or selling gift cards is Gift Card Granny.  There are a number of other companies that sell discount gift cards, including ABC Gift Cards, GiftCards.comGift Card Zen, and Monster Gift Card.  You can even search for discounted gift cards on Ebay.  You would do well to see where you can get the best deal for the cards you wish to buy (or sell).  Remember that the best deal includes both the price and the customer service.

Note: After employing discount gift cards to save money myself and save thousands of dollars for my church, I have become an affiliate of Raise, and I have posted a referral link to Cardpool.  If you use the links on this webpage to those two companies, I will receive financial compensation for helping you to save money.  I can in good conscience say that there is nothing on this website that I would not have said were I not an affiliate of the companies, and I believe that it is appropriate that we both benefit from the information I have put together for your betterment (1 Timothy 5:18).  However, if you are bothered by the fact that I will be compensated if you use these buttons to sign up, you can sign up on the webpage of either or both companies without clicking on these buttons, and I will get nothing.  If you choose to use the buttons on this webpage, I offer you my sincere thanks.
