Now that the tax stimulus checks are mostly distributed, you can’t help but notice all of the companies out there trying to pry that money out of our hands. A lot of them are offering special incentives for doing so (for example, Sears is offering an additional 10% on any gift cards purchased).
While looking at all of the offers, I realized that we didn’t need anything from any of the stores offering a promotion. Then, we got a flier in the mail from grocery store chain, Kroger. Basically, they’ll add 10% to a $300, $600, or $1200 Kroger gift card.
This one piqued my interested because we shop at Kroger. I’m considering buying a $300 gift card to basically get $30 in free groceries. It seems like a good way to spend part of that money since we’d be spending it on a need — not a want. And secondly, it’s an instant 10% return on our “investment”.
Is anyone else planning on taking advantage of any of these offers? If so, which ones?
