Today’s giveaway: one winner will receive $50 AMC Movie theater gift card and $50 Coldstone gift card.

AMC Gift Card

These would make for nice gifts to give – or even better, a nice gift for friends or family would be the gift of fun and memories and taking them out for movies and ice cream – and you could do it all for FREE! PLUS since these are gift cards, you can combine them with any coupons and specials for even greater savings!

This giveaway and gift cards have been sponsored by City Deals.  We love City Deals and it was one of our “savings secrets” for many years…… until we started to tell everyone about it ;)

We have used them for years and keep using them, this is why:

  1. They sell local and national gift cards/gift certificates everyday at a discounted price.
  2. They will even have “sales” on gift cards/gift certificates which means even deeper savings.
  3. Our favorite reason is that many of the gift cards/gift certificates are just like cash and we can use coupons and discounts and then pay with our discounted gift card cash = even more savings than just paying with cash!

As an example, just last week, they had $25 Walmart gift cards for $20! That means our typical Walmart bill will be an additional 20% lower without hardly any extra effort, just pre-purchasing a discounted gift card.  Another favorite was the $10 Subway gift cards for $5! We used our $10 gift card recently with coupons and we all ate a hearty sandwich lunch before our field trip for just over $5 for the 6 of us!!

And don’t worry, we will tell you when these hot deals pop-up on City Deals, and you will want to be following us via Facebook and/or subscribe to our FREE email newsletter to know when the deals pop-up as you have to be quick – they always sell out fast!

How To Enter Today’s Giveaway, there are four (4) possible ways to enter:

  • Just leave a comment – on how you would use your FREE gift cards (i.e., give them as a gift, take someone out as a gift, use them yourself to reward yourself and family for all of the hard work in finding the holiday deals, etc.) Or visit the City Deals website HERE and tell us what gift card you look most forward to being able to get a deal on in the future!

I am not sure how we would use these gift cards. It would be very tempting to keep them for date nights. But, with Christmas just around the corner, I am sure we could find someone on our list who would love them!

I would use the $50 AMC movie gift card as a Xmas gift & I would keep the $50 gift card for Coldstone for myself to treat my granddaughter to.
