MyGiftCardsPlus Easter Sale!

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 25, 2016 · 0 comments

Hippity Hop, it's that time of year again! Starting to think about how to spread the joy on Easter? Fill up your Easter baskets with Gift Cards and enjoy your egg-stra savings! You might even say this deal is egg-celent!

So here's the pitch -- MyGiftCardsPlus, the site that gives you Cash Back when you buy new gift cards, has a special offer running from now through March 27th: You’ll earn Cash Back plus a Bonus when you spend $50 or more on Gift Cards to Lowe’s, Gap, Baby Gap, eBay, Game Stop, The Home Depot, Build-A-Bear, and Toys “R” Us!*

The more you spend, the more you earn!

Spend $50 and get a 100 SB Bonus

Spend $75 and get a 125 SB Bonus

Spend $100 and get a 150 SB Bonus

Stack your deals for even more Cash Back: Say you or your family shop at Gap. Buy a Gap gift card at MyGiftCardPlus first and get 7.5% Cash Back on your purchase. Make that a $50 gift card and you get a 100 SB Bonus, making your cash back return 9.4%!

That's on top of your credit card's cash back rewards, on top of whatever great sale you find at Gap and -- wait for it, here's where things get really saver savvy -- use that gift card to shop on through Swagbucks and you could get ANOTHER 8% Cash Back on any purchase you make (besides more gift cards). If you do this right, you could be getting $10 back on a $50 purchase you were already going to make!

Make those Easter Baskets extra special this year with MyGiftCardsPlus, powered by Swagbucks.

*The SB Bonus Offers apply to one purchase per gift card listed above (Lowe’s, Gap, Baby Gap, eBay, Game Stop, The Home Depot, Build-A-Bear, and Toys “R” Us). This offer expires at 11:59pm PST on March 27th. Your SB will credit when your electronic gift card is delivered. You must spend at least $50 to receive a SB Bonus.

Ever wished your favorite retailer's sales applied to gift cards as well as their merchandise?

If they did, you could bank those savings, and only spend money when you actually need something, rather than being lured in by "door-buster" sales only to spend more than you intended at the end of the day! Not possible, right? Gift Cards are never discounted... Wrong.

With MyGiftCardsPlus, powered by Swagbucks, your weekend plans are one click away. (1) Buy gift cards, (2) Get 5-10% or more Cash Back (that's in addition to whatever your credit card offers you), (3) Save your gift cards for whenever the moment truly strikes you!

Treat yourself with a Sephora Gift Card!

Catch up on all the Oscar nominated movies you missed with an AMC Gift Card!

Take a weekend excursion with family and friends with a Groupon Gift Card!

Finally use all those Bed Bath & Beyond coupons you get in the mail and save even more with a Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Card!
