Still looking for a gift for your favorite food lover? I've noticed some enticing deals on restaurant gift cards. They'll give you a bonus card or certificate (or in some cases, a free food item) with your purchase.

So, why would you want a gift card and an additional gift card? Well, you can give the bonus card as a gift to someone else, or you can keep it as a gift for yourself, or you can give the bonus card as a gift and keep the big card for a special occasion.

Some of these gift cards are available to purchase online, but if you want to have it before Christmas, you can pop into the restaurant and they will sell you one and give you the bonus gift card right there. Make sure you understand the restrictions associated with the cards before you purchase them! Some of the most common restrictions are:

  1. specific validity dates for use
  2. may be one-time use only
  3. may restrict to one per table
  4. can't be used with other coupons or discounts
  5. may not allow use for include alcohol, tax or tip
  6. usually not available at airport locations
  7. doesn't apply to gift cards bought at other retail locations, like grocery stores.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office often issues warnings about gift cards (see #8). Many people don't read the fine print and are disappointed (or angry) when they find out that their gift card expired or a fee was deducted monthly for non-use, or they had to spend a certain amount to use it, or....

The warnings apply to all gift cards, not only holiday cards or the bonus deals. Read the fine print, and ask questions!

The bonus deals appear here in alphabetical order. Keep checking back, as I continue to add to this list through the end of the year.
