Over the weekend I took my daughter shopping for boots at DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse). The store is offering a gift card deal for purchasing a $50.00 gift card they will give you a $10.00 gift card to be used January 15-January 30, 2011. You can use the $50.00 gift card now towards a purchase. The ten dollar card is only good in the January dates. While you are there sign up for their free rewards card that earns points for your purchases. They also will send you a coupon in your Birthday month when you sign up for the rewards card.
L.L.Bean is offering a similar type promotional card. When you spend $50.00 on a purchase in store or online, they will give you a $10.00 card to be used now until February 15, 2011.
On Monday I visited Christmas Tree Shops, they are offering a $10.00 coupon off a $50.00 purchase. The coupon is good through December 13, 2010. To get the coupon visit their web site and sign up for the email. If you got to the store and forgot your coupon ask at the customer service desk for one, usually they have extra ones there.
Keep an eye out for other stores and restaurants offering bonus gift cards when you purchase a gift card. You can keep the extra one, give it with the gift card, or even give it to someone else.
