Last Minute Mother's Day Gifts: Stores Offering Cash Back on Gift Cards and/or In Store Pick-Up

May 9, 2014 | Posted By: Marian Whitaker | Categorized in: Shopping, FatWallet, Gift Ideas

Sometimes we don't think of a gift in time for it to be shipped on Mother's Day. But you probably still want an excellent deal on whatever it is you're buying! So this year, if you want to shop last-minute online, why not try in-store pickup? It is even better when you can shop online, pick up in the store for free, and earn cash back!

Or you may be interested in getting Mom a gift card. Also included below is a list of stores which offer cash back on purchasing gift cards. Just to clarify, you won't get cash back when the gift card is used, you'll get cash back when you buy the gift card initially.

Below is a list of popular stores that will allow you to do your shopping online, earn cash back, and pick up your purchase in the store.

Watch out for these possible cash back complications:

There are sometimes regulations attached with cash back - we recommend clicking the 'see details' link on the merchant's page so that you can know exactly what purchases qualify for cash back or not!

A majority of stores don't offer cash back for in-store pickup, and if you don't know that, you might accidentally order and unknowingly disqualify yourself for cash back. That's why we've listed the stores that have verified they will give cash back if you pick your oder up in the store!

If a merchant provides cash back for in-store pick up, the Terms and Conditions for a store will say something like "Cash Back available for buy-online / pick up in-store purchases, as well as buy-online / ship to your address orders."

A REMINDER: Altering your order will void out the cash back. This includes adding things that catch your eye in the store, whether it be a candy bar or a new lamp. Anything extra you purchase at the time of doing an in-store pick up should be a separate transaction.

Additionally, sometimes stores have odd rules about gift cards. Check to make sure whether or not you'll get cash back for a gift card. Some merchants will give you cash back with the purchase of the gift card; others, when you redeem the gift card and use it. So check carefully!

The list of stores that offer in-store pick up or cash back when purchasing gift cards is below.

Happy almost Mother's Day!
