I’ve mentioned in the past the idea of buying discount gift cards to save even more on purchases.  My go to site, Coupon Trade recently moved the gift card side of their site to a new site with a new name – Raise.com.

If you haven’t checked out the deals with discount gift cards, now is the time.  Find a card you want and use code SOUTHERN5 to get $5 off any $50 purchase.  Head over and see all the available gift cards to buy.

One gift card I’m considering is:

After the $5 coupon code, I’ll have $80 to spend at Pet Smart and will have only spent $62.70.  We can print the e-card and head to our local store and stock up on dog food.  Since I can use store coupons and manufacturer coupons on top of the gift card, this should make a pretty great deal on a lot of pet food!!

Don’t forget, you can also sell gift cards on Raise.com.  This is perfect if you have a gift card to a store you’ll never shop at or have made returns and got it put on a gift card rather than cash.

Do you see any gift cards you want?

      Can someone help me. I can’t find where to place the promo code during check out. I think I’m just missing something obvious.

      Raise.com has the BBB logo on their website, however, when I
      go to the Better Business Bureau’s site (bbb.org) and search for “raise.com” it does not show the website as having BBB accreditation. I also clicked the BBB logo on raise.com – that led me to the BBB in Chicago and northern Illinois, but still no results when I searched for “raise.com” on that site. Any idea why this inconsistency exists? I’d really like to use this website, but I don’t feel safe if the Better Business Bureau doesn’t have them listed?

      I got a Justice card. I paid $78 for a $100 card. Justice is having a FLash sale this weekend….40% plus an additional 20%. I’m thinking I can get $200 in clothes for $78!!
