Freebie Friday! Bonus money when you buy gift cards

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) We are always letting you know what’s best to buy each month. There are a lot of deals this month but this week in particular is the best time to buy one popular item: gift cards! Gift cards are great. They make for an easy and always appreciated gift but it’s even better when you get a little extra back! A number of places are offering freebies and in most cases free money when you buy from them.

Here are just a few examples:

For the shoe lover in your life, get 5 bucks back when you buy a $50 gift card at DSW.

Get $10 back at Panera when you buy $50. Might be a nice way to pay for those ladies lunches.

Moms, there’s a good one for Children’s Place. Get $10 when you buy $40.

Free pizza always goes over well. Get a one-topping pie with a $25 purchase at Papa Johns.

The movies are always a fun treat. Get $5 when you buy a $25 gift card from Showcase Cinemas.

Buy a $50 card at Applebee’s and get $10 back.

You’ll buy one get one at Bonefish Grill that’s a $10 bonus card there too.

If you’re considering luxury for a loved one- you can get a $25 promo card when you spend $100 at Massage Envy.

Or if a breakfast gift card was going to go into someone stockings. A $25 card at Denny’s will get you $5 back. That’s at least a side of bacon and another coffee.

And who says you have to give gift cards. You may stretch your dollar further by getting the gift card and bonus then using that to buy gifts. Any leftover money goes back in your wallet.
