The latest addition to our gift card collection is a $25 gift card to a local restaurant courtesy of a raffle at my husband's work. In order to be eligible, you have to answer a safety question via email. Although the raffle is held once a month, only a few employees actually take the 3 minutes to enter, which means those who bother entering usually win a few times a year. It never ceases to amaze me how little effort some people are willing to put forth to put (or keep) money in their pockets. But, we'll gladly benefit from it!
This year, I've started keeping track of all the free gift cards that we receive from various sources. So far, we've already received $95 worth of gift cards! Here's the rundown:
$25 restaurant gift card, courtesy husband's safety raffle
$25 Home Depot gift card, courtesy of mypoints
$25 Walgreens gift card, courtesy of a prescription transfer offer
$10 Ace Hardware gift card, courtesy of rewards account
(which husband earns for work purchases - he was sure to ok with the boss)
$10 Chili's gift card, courtesy of mypoints
