Today Only: Get 10% Off Raise.com Gift Cards Sitewide

Today only, Raise.com is offering an additional 10% off of their already discounted gift cards, site wide.  All you have to do is use the promo code: SPECIAL.

Notes:

  • Max $20 discount
  • Expires on 4/20 at 11:59 pm CST
  • One-time use

If you are a frequent online shopper, buying gift cards from a site like Raise.com , can sometimes provide some significant savings at shops you already frequent.  Plus, if you do get a gift card, you can then go through a shopping portal for even extra savings!  One of our favorites is Cashback Monitor.  

From Doctor of Credit:

Raise.com is a marketplace where sellers list their unwanted gift cards for sale and buyers purchase them using Raise’s secure checkout system. All transactions are handled exclusively by Raise themselves, and you’ll never deal with the actual seller.

Raise offer an extensive line of gift cards, arguably the widest variety of any gift card exchange.

Someone who shops a lot can save a lot of money over time by using discounted gift card instead of paying full price. For example, a contractor might spend $30,000 per year at Home Depot. Buying Home Depot gift cards at a  5% discount would save them $1,500 over the course of the year.

Bear in mind that you will lose out on any credit card protections when paying with a gift card in place of direct credit card payment. For some purchases, it might be smarter to pay with a credit card directly.

 

Swap Your Toys R Us Gift Cards at Bed, Bath & Beyond

Toys R Us gift card holders can exchange them for a reduced Bed Bath & Beyond or buybuy BABY eGift cards. But shoppers needs to act fast.

Time To Act Now on Toys R Us Gift Cards

If you've been hanging onto any remaining Toys R Us gift cards, you may want to act soon.  The going out of business retail chain is planning on only honoring gift cards through April 13th, according to USA Today.

"Use those gift cards ASAP," the Better Business Bureau said on its website in advice for customers of bankrupt companies. "Businesses that have entered into the liquidation process will not be around for very long and BBB advises consumers who are holding gift cards spend them as soon as possible or risk getting stuck with a worthless piece of plastic."

However, if you don't anticipate being able to use any remaining cards, retailer Bed, Bath and Beyond is coming to the rescue, teaming up with CardCash to buy any unwanted cards.

Notes:

  • Thursday April 5, 2018 at 11:59pm EST is the last day they’ll buy your unwanted Toys R Us gift cards.
  • The minimum value has to be $20.00, although partially used or uneven balances will be accepted.
  • They’re only offering a payout rate of 64.2%.

A payout rate like the above would normally be terrible.  But given the forthcoming demise of the toy giant, this may be a good time to cut your losses.

Here's a little nostalgia for 'ol time's sake:
