Are you out and about with after-Christmas returns and sales? If so, here's something else you might want to shop for. This time of the year, I like to buy restaurant gift cards for places that I frequent because they often offer a bonus card with a purchase. Note that the bonus cards usually have restrictions or time limits. Here's a few deals that are still available:
Carls Jr. Expires 12/31/13. Buy a $20 gift card, receive a Six Dollar Thickburger
Daphnes Greek Cafe Expires 12/29/13. Buy a $30 gift card, receive a $10 bonus card valid 1/1/14 - 2/9/14
El Torito Expires 12/31/13. Buy a $25 gift card, receive a $5 bonus card valid 1/1/14 - 3/30/14
Red Robin.com Buy a $25 gift card, receive a $10 bonus card valid 1/1/14 - 2/28/14
Rubios Buy a $50, receive a $5 bonus
If you have a favorite restaurant, you can easily do a quick search online to see to they are still offering gift card deals. Some deals expired on 12/24.
