It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving and Black Friday is upon us. This crept up on me so fast! I realize I still have to get a few odds and ends for Thanksgiving dinner and get my sister a gift for her birthday. I made plans to stop at Giant Eagle tomorrow to pick up some pumpkin pie filling. I realized I could pick up a gift card for my sister while I’m there too. Then I realized…hey while I’m at it I should grab some gift cards for Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping and for any other gifts I was planning on giving.
Why buy gift cards at Giant Eagle instead of anywhere else? Well that reason is simple. For every $50 I spend on gift cards at Giant Eagle I earn 20 cents off per gallon of gas. You read that right 20 cents off per gallon. I’ve seen some savvy Giant Eagle shoppers paying next to nothing for filling up after buying gift cards or doing their regular grocery shopping from Giant Eagle. With the gas prices dropping across the US, that could mean some seriously cheap fuel ups for buying gift cards you were going to get anyway.
Another reason to get gift cards, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Let me give you a for instance. My son has an iPod Touch on his Christmas list. I’ve been scoping prices and Best Buy has some good deals so I was planning on getting him the iPod Touch there. I could buy $100 in Best Buy gift cards to buy that iPod touch and score 40 cents off per gallon (20 cents off for every $50 spent on gift cards). Yep, that’s really how it works. They have tons of gift cards to choose from: Red Lobster, Amazon, GameStop, iTunes, and lots of others.
