I LOVE gift card deals!!!
One of the big things we learned when tracking our spending was the simple fact that we ate out WWWWaaaaayyyy too much!
We simply made a few changes:
1) Turned in credit card points for $25 restaurant gift cards. (we had a LOT of points and got a LOT of them!)
2) Watched for gift card deals like buy one for $25 and get $5 back.
3) Went to family friendly places on nights that Kids Eat Free
4) Stopped drinking anything but water or milk. (healthier too!)
Those simple changes meant we could go out to eat and usually, the gift card even covered the tip!
There is a gift card deal this week at Copp’s and Sentry.
Buy $25 in Pizza Hut or Subway Gift Cards and Present Your Roundy’s Rewards Card at Checkout, Get a Coupon for $5 Off a Future Purchase.
That means, you get it basically for $20.00 and save 20%.
I plan to pick up one for a gift for the hubby – Miss Sarah keeps earning a coupon through the school’s monthly “Book It” program and the local Pizza Hut lets us use it for a FREE buffet (same value). The hubby likes to go too and this would get him 3 FREE meals alongside hers.
You will see this giftcard in my weekly plan as part of transaction #1.
Subway is a great one too – now that ALL subs are in the $5 Foot Long deal! That is Five Feet of subs for $20. Yum!
