Gift cards may have a bad reputation for being impersonal, but the truth is they make great presents. They might be even better around the holidays, when gift card purchases come with bonus cards or other perks that sweeten the deal even more.

What to Know About Bonus Gift Card Deals

Remember to Read the Fine Print

Be sure to read the fine print on gift card deals. The bonus perks are typically pretty awesome, but they're often redeemable only during certain periods of time. Watch for them to be valid for a few weeks or months after the initial gift card promotion has ended.

Bonus gift cards are only redeemable during a certain period of time, usually right after the initial promotion has ended.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you might not have to purchase a gift card to receive a bonus card. For example, some retailers offer these additional cards when you spend a certain minimum on other merchandise. If you're intrigued by this kind of offer, consider checking out stores like Target, Chewy, and L.L.Bean.

When Can You Find Gift Card Deals?

The best gift card deals typically show up in December, and those are usually the ones that are coupled with bonus cards to entice shoppers to "give one, get one." If you decide to keep them all to yourself, that's fine, too — your secret's safe with us!
