If you’re looking to stock up on some gifts for Christmas, or perhaps you’re just looking to treat yourself, then don’t pay more!
Instead of going straight to a restaurant or retailer and spending full price, buy a gift card in advance and save your cash.
Why wouldn’t you really? Say you are planning to buy a few bits from New Look as Christmas gifts. Instead of buying directly with New Look, buy a gift card, saving you 20%.
20% off Tesco Gift Cards
Tesco are running a special gift card offer in the run up to Christmas. Their offers change from week to week. Buying a gift card from Tesco can see you get some big savings of 20% on their face value.
Instead of spending them today, you could even hold onto them and use them for a double discount in the January sales!
This week Tesco are offering 20% off
- £20 Pizza Express gift card – redeemed in any Pizza Express restaurant in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
- £25 New Look gift card – can be redeemed at any UK store and online at newlook.com
- £20 The Mitchells & Butlers Dining Out Card – redeemed in participating pubs and restaurants including Harvester, Vintage Inns, Browns, Miller & Carter Steakhouse, All Bar One and Toby Carvery
- £25 Monsoon gift card – redeemed in any Monsoon or Accessorize store in the United Kingdom excluding concessions and P&O ferries
These offers are running from now through until 27 November 2016.
If you are buying the gift card online, you can opt to receive your gift card digitally. This way you can use it straight away, instead of having to wait for it to be posted.
If you choose to have the gift card posted, you will need to pay for delivery so the digital voucher is a better value offer.
You can only buy a maximum of five gift cards per transaction, up to a maximum of £100. The gift cards are valid for (usually) five years so even if you don’t spend it all at once, you’re not likely to lose out.
Why not add a gift voucher to a hamper? Instead of giving just a card, you could turn it into a more personalised present.
