Gift cards tack on freebies

- Gift cards play a big role in holiday giving. But why not get a little more out of them when you give this year?

Retailers these days sweeten the pot a little by adding free bucks onto that gift card.  Deal News, a deal aggregator out of Alabama, sent us a nice list and we want to share that with you.

Let's start with kids' clothing at The Children's Store.  Buy a gift card for someone else; it has to be valued at $40 or more and in return look at this, you get a $10 coupon.

DSW.  This is the discount shoe warehouse. Love this place. Many of us do. Well, get someone else a gift card. And with every $50 in gift cards you buy, you get a $5 bonus card. Or get yourself a $50 gift card and keep that bonus money for yourself, too.

Let's look at food. Lettuce Entertain You. It's a chain, so you can get this gift card offer for folks all around the country.  Scoop up $100 in gift cards and keep $25 for yourself then you can head over to Maggiano's Little Italy and use it there.

Again, Deal News  has a long list  and it's filled with food options and clothing chains.  Listen, if you're folks eat or shop at any of these places, it's not just a great gift for them, but a deal for you, too. Or, heck, buy a gift card for yourself and keep the deal. 

But remember, for all of these you have to read the fine print. The devil, as we say, is in the details.
