The website Gyft is giving you a free $5 promotion code to purchase a $15 or more gift card through this site. That means 33% off a gift card purchase. While it does require you to pay money to get something for free, I do not mind this when it involves purchasing gift cards. With this site you can purchase over a thousand commonly used gift cards which is great. This includes Amazon, Best Buy, CVS, Kohl’s, Target, Sears, Whole Foods, Zappos, Gap, Cheesecake Factory, JCPenney, Lord & Taylor, Kmart, AMC, Barnes & Nobles, Brookstone, Groupon, Applebees, Maggianos, UNO’s etc. – you get the idea!
The premise of the site allows you to purchase a gift card for yourself or for a friend by pulling in your friends birthdays via Facebook. While I used this promotion to purchase a gift card for myself, you can also put the $5 promotion code towards purchasing a gift for an upcoming friends bday.
And to double dip on the offer, if you pay with Google, you can get a free $5 Toys R Us gift card. So if you shop at Toys R Us at all, your $10 purchase will give you a $15 gift card at a merchant of your choice + a $5 Toys R Us gift card which is great. And if you do not shop at Toys R Us, you can either gift the gift card to a friend or possibly sell it on a third party resale site for a few bucks.
Steps to get your gift card with the $5 off applied:
- Sign up for gyft (I personally did Facebook as I read reports this worked best)
- Select “View” Gyft card
- Click the “Reveal Gift Code” button. Once revealed, copy and paste the code as you will need to use it at check out.
- Go to the “Shop” button at the top of the page and select the gift card you want to purchase. I personally selected Amazon.com as I like being able to enter the gift code immediately into my Amazon account and not have to worry about losing a gift card. You must purchase at least a $15 gift card for the $5 coupon code to apply.
- Enter the gift card code that you copied and pasted from before and click the “Validate” button.
- Select your payment method. If you select Google Checkout you’ll receive a bonus $5 gift card from Toys R Us. Then proceed by checking out. Paying with Google is super easy and if you’ve used it before your credit cards will most likely already be saved where you can just select a saved credit card. If not, just add a new credit card and continue to complete the checkout process. The only thing with Google checkout is the order might take up to 12 hours to process.
Enjoy your free $5 gift card! What gift card did you select? You can learn more about this promotion in this Slickdeals thread.
