Still looking for a gift for your favorite food lover? I've noticed some enticing deals at restaurants around town relating to gift cards. They'll give you a bonus card with your purchase. So, why would you want a gift card and an additional gift card? Well, you can give the bonus card as a gift to someone else, or you can keep it as a gift to yourself, or you can give the bonus card as a gift and keep the big card for a special occasion. Some of these gift cards are available to purchase online, but if you want to have it before Christmas, you can pop into the restaurant and they will sell you one and give you the bonus card right there. Make sure you understand the restrictions associated with the cards before you purchase them!
Keep checking back, as I continue to add to this list through the end of the year.
All dates, times, prices and offerings are subject to change without notice. Other restrictions may apply. Have you heard of another bonus card deal at a local restaurant? Let me know.
