What to Know About Bonus Gift Card Deals

Be sure to read the fine print with these gift card deals. The extra perks are great, but you can often only redeem them during a certain period of time, and it tends to be within the first few months of the new year. If you do end up with a card you can't or won't use, it's worth looking into gift card resale opportunities.

You can typically redeem bonus gift cards during the first few months of the new year.

Several retailers tend to offer a bonus card when you spend a certain amount on other merchandise, sometimes instead of giving out a gift card with the purchase of another. If you're interested in this type of gift card promotion, check out stores like Chewy, Target, and L.L.Bean. Additionally, retailers like Kohl's and The Children's Place offer their own version of store credit with qualifying purchases.

When Can You Find Gift Card Deals?

The best time to shop gift card deals is in November and especially December. That's when you'll usually find them coupled with bonus cards, which ensures your dollar goes even further and provides a great opportunity to "gift one, get one," although you can keep them all for yourself if you prefer — we won't tell.
