I know a lot of you have been very busy with the holiday and Black Friday Deals so I wanted to point out an awesome Gift Card Deal at Pathmark and A&P this week just in case you missed it. This giftcard deal has the potential to be up to a $60 Money Maker depending on the value of the giftcard you buy and the type of card you buy.
The breakdown is as follows:
- Buy $50 in select gift cards Get a $5 Catalina
- Buy $100 in select gift cards Get a $10 Catalina
- Buy $200 in select gift cards Get a $20 Catalina
- Buy $500 in select gift cards Get a $60 Catalina
The cards included in the deal are:
- Lord & Taylor
- Toys R Us
- Plus 2 others that I can not make out in the image
The only cards that have activation fees are the Visa and Mastercard and those run around $5.95 although there are $500 packs that have multiple gift cards in them with an $8.95 activation fee.
If you have been around here a while, you know that I love these gift card deals. These are a great way to take money from your budget envelopes (if you have them) and pick up a gift card. The catalina is just like free money to use in the store.
Here is a way I am using the giftcards this time. I have money set aside in my checking account for the next payment of my son’s college tuition. I will take $500 of it and buy a $500 gift card, pay the activation fee of up to $8.95 (depending on which set my store has), use the gift card to pay the bill and I have a free $60 to spend on almost anything I want at A&P. My only cost was the $8.95 activation fee. So, my profit is $51.05!
Of course, if you buy a store card like Toys R Us, there is no activation fee which would make for a $60 Money Maker. I am not planning, at the moment, to buy anything at any of those stores so the Visa and Mastercard gives me flexibility.
Here is a breakdown of all the deals if you were purchasing a Visa or Mastercard:
If you have any questions, please ask. A lot of people take advantage of these offers and if you haven’t done them before, I want to be sure you completely understand the benefits of doing them. I know a lot of people on here would be more then happy to answer questions if I don’t get to them.
