Make FREE Money By Buying Gift Cards!

Not only are restaurants offering holiday gift card deals, but so are several grocery chains!

Last week I posted about the Lowes Foods gift card deal. If you buy any combination of participating gift cards totalling $50, you will receive $5 off your next shopping order. According to the Lowes Foods website, participating card are Lowe's Hardware, Olive Garden, Kohl's, JC Penny, Red Lobster, Aeropostale, and iTunes. This deal actually ends on Saturday, December 3rd, so you only have one more day to get it!

However, the Food Lion gift card deal is even better and you have until December 13th to get it! If you buy any combination of $50 in gift cards from Food Lion, you will receive $10 off your next shopping trip! According to the Food Lion website, you can use any combination of available gift cards to qualify for the deal. Some of the cards listed included Lowes Hardware, ITunes, Bass Pro Shop, Office Max, Cracker Barrel, and Red Lobster, but they said others were available.

Keep in mind that even if you don't give gift cards away to others, if you shop at any of the participating stores throughout the year, it would be wise to pre-purchase some gift cards for when you WILL shop there, just to get the $10 grocery shopping money. For example, if you tend to buy clothes from JC Penny, go ahead and give yourself a clothes budget and buy $50 in gift cards now so you can get the $10 in free money from Food Lion. It says one coupon printed per transaction, so if you wanted $200 in gift cards from JC Penny, split up your order and pay $50 worth at a time until you get to $200 and you would get $40 in grocery money from Food Lion! Not only would you get the free grocery money but you'd already have your clothes budget for next year. 

You could even use the JC Penny gift cards to do your holiday shopping. Instead of paying with cash or credit card for your Christmas gifts go ahead and buy the JC Penny gift cards from Food Lion for your holiday shopping. That way, you will also earn the free grocery money!

I am not currently aware of any deals like this going on at Harris Teeter, but if you are, let me know!


  1. What a great idea. Something to do for yourself if you don't give the cards away (as long as you pick stores you use often).
    Thanks for this Delly!
