Last Minute Holiday Shopping: eGift Cards and Gift Cards with Cash Back

What do you do if you run out of time but you still have gifts to buy on your list? You get creative!

I’m not talking about creating last minute magic with a hot glue gun and dried pasta, I’m talking about the gift that always fits…Gift Cards!

But here’s where the creative part comes in. Just because you’re shopping for a gift card, doesn’t mean you have to pay face value! You’re a bargain hunter after all, and I’m sure paying full price for things makes the hair stand up on your neck like it does for me!

The good news is that many of our merchants allow you to earn cash back on the purchase of a gift card! This forum post lists a bunch of them: Cash Back on the Purchase of Gift Cards.

Even if there is no time to mail a physical gift card, lots of stores offer eGift cards, which is perfect for the procrastinating shopper since they can be emailed or printed and given to someone!

Here is a list of stores that offer the best of both worlds, eGift cards for the last minute shipper with cash back for the savvy shopper! These might be the perfect solution for those people on your list for whom you haven’t found anything yet.

Have fun and happy shopping!
