We are really excited about this next giveaway!!!
That may not have made any sense (a gift card to buy a gift card, what?) – so let me explain why this is so incredible and why we are so excited!!!!
First, have you heard of City Deals? Well, it is a place to purchase discount gift cards for local and national chains, which is exciting as most are just like cash and you can combine coupons with them! Most of the time, you can get a minimum of 10% off or a 10% bonus on the national chains and even more discount on local businesses on a regular basis – this means stretching your dollar by another 10% (or MORE)!!!! The even more exciting part is when they have a sale on those gift cards – this means MORE SAVINGS!
They are a growing company that will be moving into many markets very quickly and we will be the first to announce the national markets as they come on board – 13 local markets will be introduced soon! A local market means that they are adding local businesses to certain areas at massive discounts, so your favorite locals may be added with the ability to purchase a gift card at a discount on a regular basis. They are currently offering amazing discounts for many Utah businesses, so if you are in Utah – go check out the 55% off sale (we will do a separate post on our favorite Utah deals).
BUT WAIT …… they offer discount gift cards for national chains and businesses that work all over the country!!!
They are continually adding more, but here are some examples of top deals for national businesses now (there are many more with the 10% bonus or 10% discount, but these are on sale right now for an even better deal!!):
· Cinemark IMAX pass – 37% off
· Cold Stone gift card – 20% off
· Domino’s Pizza voucher – 20% off
· Blimpie gift certificate – 20% off
· Taco Time gift certificate – 20% off
So what that means is that you can buy gift cards to the above businesses at the discounted rates listed above! PLUS – you know us, it does not stop there!!! The Thrifty Couple has found a code for an additional 10% off the already discounted gift cards!!!!
After you have found the discounted cards you want to purchase, just enter code: TEN4ME at check out and you will receive an additional 10% off your entire discounted purchase! This code expires on 3/31/10, however, so you will want to HURRY as they have limited quantities of discounted gift cards and once they are sold out – that is it until they are restocked. They sell out quickly! Believe me, we jump on this as soon as the businesses we use are open so we don’t miss out. PLUS they are offering FREE shipping right now that can end at any time!
There are gift cards for restaurants, bowling alleys, family fun centers, SPAS!!!, salons, pizza parlors, automotive care, retail stores and more…….
So we have been using City Deals for a long time! We have been couponing and being thrifty for many years now – during that time, City Deals has been our primary source for thrifty dates and family activities central! PLUS, these make killer gifts (everyone loves gift cards right?) – but guess what?!?! You get them for a steal!!
We plan our family activities and dates ahead of time so we can get the best deals. Some activities end up being FREE, but in many cases, they are not, so we maximize our savings by pulling together all of savings which is usually using a coupon for the activity or date and then paying with a discount gift card! Massive fun and savings at the same time (come on, admit it, things are way more fun when you get them for a good deal too!).
Remember the gift certificates we purchased a couple of months ago? Well, they are still serving us very well for family fun out and family dinners!! A very thrifty way, but NOT depriving you and your family of the luxuries of going out!
