1. Buy gift cards at wholesale clubs
Wholesale clubs sell certain gift cards at a discount. For example:
- Costco is offering a 2 P.F. Chang’s gift cards worth $100 for a price of $79.99 and 2 Buca di Beppo gift cards worth $100 each for a price of just $69.99. (Yes, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably won’t be dining out for a while, but you could use the discounted cards for curbside pickup, or just hold them until after restaurants open again, and go celebrate!)
- Sam’s Club bargains range from $50 in Ghirardelli Chocolate cards for $34.91 to $50 in Saint Louis Zoo gift cards for $34.98.
- BJ’s offers savings — big and small — on gift cards for everything from restaurants to movies.
