A while ago I prompted you to put a little money aside for the wonderful savings on gift cards this time of year. Now is the time to stock up for the coming year at businesses you frequent and just an all over nice time to pick them up for gifts, whether for Christmas or the coming year's birthdays, showers, etc.
Here is a list of both local and national gift card deals. As always, not all locations may be participating, so be sure to call ahead if in doubt. Also note that some free gift cards must be used within a certain time period.
I know I am missing some too, so please leave me a comment or send me an email and I will get it updated.
