Holiday Shopping Tip: Groceries & Gift Cards = Savings!
Prime holiday shopping time is upon us. I have super secret holiday shopping tip just for you! Want to know what it is?
Get Your Gift Cards at the Grocery Store!
Yup, it’s as simple as that. Swing into your local Stop & Shop or Giant Carlisle and you can save big time!
Save on Fuel
First off, you can save on fuel. Those trips to Grandma’s house will cost less. Cool, huh? Through 12/4, your purchases at Stop & Shop or Giant Carlisle will get 4 times the fuel rewards on participating gift cards. This includes a ton of the top brands like Game Stop, iTunes, JC Penney, Aeropostale, American Eagle and many more! Variable gift cards from these brands also count. You can add up to $500 on the gift cards. That’s a lot of savings for your fuel fill-ups.
Earn More Rewards
Do you have a rewards credit card? You can earn even more points, miles and/or cash back with your purchases. Some credit cards even give increased rewards at grocery stores.
Do the Math
So, let’s look at a possible scenario. After all, you are a savvy shopper, right? Here is an example of how you would save almost 10% on a $100 purchase.
- $6 off fuel: With 4x fuel rewards earn 40? off/gallon of fuel. That’s $6 in savings for a 15 gallon tank!
- $3 back: If you earn 3% on grocery purchases through your credit card rewards program.
Why not get your holiday shopping done with errands you need to run anyway like grocery shopping. Gift cards great for all of those picky teenagers on my list. They are also perfect for other service providers like babysitters, house cleaners, teachers, etc.
