There are a number of current gift card deals running that offer savings at places like Best BuyCabela’sSafeway gas stations, and many popular restaurants. Click the images below for links.


Best Buy: buy $150 in eGift cards, get a $15 savings code

Expires: 3/3/18

Quick Thoughts: Be aware that the $15 savings code will be emailed on 3/18/18 and will only be valid from 3/18/18-3/31/18. There is a maximum of three $150 egift card purchases per customer — or just buy a single $450 gift card and you should get the three $15 savings codes (I’ve done this with previous deals). As Doctor of Credit mentions, paying with an Ink Business Preferred is a good move here.


Simon Malls: Buy $50 in select gift cards, get a $10 Visa Gift Card

Expires: 3/11/18

Quick thoughts: Check your mall on the Simon Malls home page to be sure this promotion is being offered. I found a link on the main mall page by scrolling through the offers, but I noticed that not all malls were promoting it. As seen in the image above, this one is good for a $10 Visa gift card with a purchase of $50 or more in Buca di Beppo, The Children’s Place, Domino’s, JCPenney, or Lane Bryant gift cards. Note that you can only get one $10 Visa gift card per transaction, so you’ll have to split it up into multiple transactions if you’re looking for more than one.


Cabela’s: $100 physical gift card for $80

Quick Thoughts: There isn’t currently a resale angle on this one as far as I’m aware, but it’s a nice way to save 20% if you have a purchase to make at Cabela’s or a gift to give the outdoors enthusiast.


Speedway gas stations: $100 physical gift card for $94

Quick Thoughts: While not as cheap as these gas cards used to be, they are still an OK deal at 6% off plus your credit card rewards.

Bottom line

It’s always nice to save money that you would otherwise spend. Gift cards like these can also sometimes come in handy for meeting minimum spend by essentially pre-paying for gift card credit that know you’ll spend at a merchant you frequent. That said, Amex has certainly been discouraging gift card spend for the purposes of minimum spend requirements. If you’re looking to meet send on an Amex card, you might want to check out Greg’s morning post: Pay taxes via credit card, 2018 edition.
