Using Gift Cards for Back-to-School Savings
If you have kids, you’ve probably been running around, helter-skelter, trying to get everything bought and organized for the start of a new school year. By now you are probably ready to pull your hair out. And even though school has already started in many places around the country, it’s entirely possible that you may have forgotten some essentials. Or just as likely, your child came home on the first day of school with a list from the teacher of extra school supplies he or she will need. You’re not alone!
Don’t fret! We’ve got your covered. You can buy a Target gift card and save up to 4% on back-to-school supplies (many of them are on sale right now too, so add that to your gift card savings and you will have money left over to treat yourself to a movie with an AMC Theater gift card, which are listed at up to 14% off on PlasticJungle.com).
If your back-to-school budget has already been spent and then some… We have a solution for that dilemma as well:
We’d be willing to bet that you have a gift card or two in your home. Maybe you received it for your birthday, or perhaps you won a gift card online. Sell it to us! We’ll give you cash (or you can exchange it for an Amazon.com Gift Card which you can use to finish your back-to-school shopping).
With a little creativity and effort, you can turn back-to-school shopping into a savings adventure!
