Raise.com is having a rare site-wide sale, offering you an additional $5 off its discounted gift cards.
You must spend $75 or more to get the deal. But unlike with most Raise sales, you’ll be able to choose from any of the retailers, restaurants and other companies for which Raise sells discounted gift cards.
This offer is available until 11:59 p.m. CT Wednesday. Just enter promo code SITEWIDE during checkout. (When you reach the “Order Summary” section, click on “Use a promo code.”)
Raise is an online marketplace for gift cards. The site enables you to sell your unwanted gift cards or to buy other people’s unwanted gift cards at a discount. I have purchased gift cards on Raise for more than 20 percent off their face value.
If you’re new to Raise, here are a few key tips:
- Get the new-customer deal. Raise is currently offering new customers $5 off their first purchase with promo code SAVE5 — and you only have to spend $25 or more. So take advantage of that deal first. To sign up for a Raise account, go to any page and click on “SIGN UP” near the top right corner. (Note that the $5 off a $75 purchase “cannot be combined with any additional offers.”)
- Shop around. Raise is not the only online gift card marketplace, and its prices change frequently. So before you buy a gift card, visit other marketplaces, such as Cardpool.com, to be sure that Raise is offering the best discount for the retailer or restaurant for which you want to buy a gift card.
- Use Ebates. Raise partners with the cash-back portal Ebates. So sign in to your Ebates account before you shop at Raise and you will score cash back on top of your gift-card discount.
