I was wondering what would happen vis a vis discount gift cards after Christmas. My bet was that there would be more of them, and at deeper discounts.
And I was right.
Today I bought a $25 Kroger gift card at a 5% discount. And last week I was able to get a whole slew of cards that, towards the end of the year, were VERY hard to come by.
The discount for JC Penney cards is back up to 30% at Plastic Jungle and you can actually get your hands on them. It’s tempting to buy all kinds of cards, but I’m sticking to those that I know there’s a 100% chance I’ll be using – and not just because I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket.
The lesson: stock up on those cards that you KNOW you will be using so that you don’t find yourself without them for the latter part of the year.
