ShopRite Gift Card Deal Update
I know a lot of you have been asking if the ShopRite Gift Card deal that runs from 11/23 – 11/24 will include anything other then store cards. Well, from the ad on the ShopRite 2 Day Sale, it appears that American Express Cards are also included. There is always a possibility that other cards (maybe gas cards?) could be included as well and they just don’t have them added to the list.
If you haven’t seen the deal, its Buy $100 in participating gift cards between 11/23 – 11/24 and $20 will be applied to your next shopping order from 11/26 – 12/1. You must use your Price Plus Card when making the purchase of the card and getting the deduction off your order. There is a limit of 1 per household. The $20 can not be used on future Gift Card purchases.
For those of you that are new to doing Gift Card deals, these are a great way to score free money for groceries. Having an American Express card included in the offer makes it even better for those of us that don’t really have use for the store cards. Since the American Express Card can be used almost anywhere, you can take money from your grocery budget, gas budget or any budgeted item and then use the card in it’s place. You can even use it to simply pay some of your bills. Plus you walk away with an extra $20 (less activation fee for some cards) to use at ShopRite on your groceries. This is a great way to stock up on meat for free!
The activation fee on the Amex Giftcard, as well as Visa or Mastercard (if they happen to be included) do require an activation fee. That fee is usually around $4.95 – $5.95. There is no activation fee on gas cards if they happen to be included (NOT CONFIRMED).
