Today’s Deals: Last-Minute Gift Options and More Gift Card Freebies

I’ve subscribed to the promotional emails of 500 companies and brands so that you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless, but a handful offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales, and freebies – which I collect and organize for you here.

It’s Christmas Eve eve. If you still haven’t finished your shopping, your options are braving the lines at the mall or grabbing a gift card from anywhere within driving distance.

Even if you’re willing to spend a small fortune to overnight ship an online purchase, it may not arrive by Christmas Eve. (Check each store’s shipping cut-off dates and read Cheapest Overnight Shipping Options).

At brick-and-mortar stores, discounts are rare because retailers know that last-minute shoppers don’t have time to comparison shop. But a few national chains – mostly clothing stores that want to turn over inventory for the new year – are offering surprisingly good sales.

Below are the best in-store deals I’ve received over the past few days, plus a few more gift card freebies that have been announced since we published Where to Find Gift Card Freebies This Holiday Season
