More than 55 percent of American adults say they’d like to receive a gift card for Christmas, according to a National Retail Federation survey. That makes gift cards the most requested gift this year and a nearly $25 billion industry.
CouponSherpa.com and companion site GiftCardGranny.com make an excellent team to save you money during the holidays.
Gift Card Granny boasts the most comprehensive listing of discount gift cards you'll find on the Internet. She has partnered with the fine folks at eBay.com, Plastic Jungle and GiftCards.com to bring you super savings of up to 50-percent off values on gift cards to the most popular retailers.
While gift cards make great gifts, few people realize you also can use them to make everyday purchases or save on gifts themselves. For example, if you're interested in purchasing a new jacket at Macy's, buy a Macy's gift card discounted 10 to 30 percent off the card's value at GiftCardGranny.com and you'll save that amount on the jacket. Combine that savings with a coupon code from CouponSherpa.com for an additional savings on your order.
