How to get free gift cards


You should be able to snag some gift cards at prices lower than face value, but this is an area where caution is warranted. 

Clark wants you to treat gift cards like hot potatoes because so many retailers are in financial trouble because of the pandemic.

“Any gift cards you get, burn them quick. Use them quick,” Clark says. “The restaurant and retail industries are unstable. Don’t let a gift card sit and gather dust.”

Fitness Products

3 Ways to Save When Shopping in 2021

As you shop for deals in January, make sure you stay on the lookout for ways to save even more. Here are three ways to do that.

1. Visit Coupon Sites

Don’t forget to check websites that have coupon codes on the items you love. Charis says the best coupon site is Coupons.com.

“It actually powers all the other coupon/mommy blogger sites,” she says, “so you’ll find the same coupons on those sites.”

2. Comparison Shop

If you know what you want, it’s a good idea to track prices across several retailers to get the best prices.

Want a tool that tracks and compares prices for you? Here’s how to use Google Shopping.

3. Sign Up for Email Alerts

If you register with them, many retailers will send you a text or email when they’ve got a sale on. Not only can you save, but it’s a great way to get a heads-up on items that are in limited quantity.
