Find discounted gift cards for national tea purveyors

ImageI don’t know where I’ve been all this time! I was reading an article about how to save money eating out. One of the suggestions was to buy a discounted gift card for the restaurant you’d like to visit. Gift Card Granny.com  and ABC Gift Card.com were listed as two places to go to find discounted gift cards.

What a concept. Those of us with gift cards we will not use can sell or swap gift cards. The person who gifted us the unwanted card will never know. Or we can just go and buy a discounted gift card to any of many businesses we already shop with.

Testimonials shared on the Gift Card Granny site were remarkable. Folks doing remodeling projects bought discounted gift cards from home improvement stores like Home Depot for percentages off the card’s face value. They turned around and made home remodeling purchases saving hundreds of dollars. Amazing.

While searching around, I found four other discount gift card sites: Raise, Monster Gift Card, Gift Card Bin and JunkCard.  I liked Raise because it was easy to see the conditions under which I am buying the card. I liked JunkCard because it had more of the stores I frequent. There are even discounted gift cards for airfare and drugstores. I am not endorsing any of these sites, I have not tried them out yet.

Of course, I had to check out the tea offerings. This blog is about tea gift ideas after all. I found discounted gift cards for Peet’s, Teavana, Starbucks and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Not bad. Too bad there is not a national tea gift basket chain or tea room chain to offer discounted gift cards similar to Spa Finder and BedandBreakfast.com. Yes, find discounted gift cards for those.

I did notice the smaller the denomination of the gift card, the less percentage discount usually applied.  Frontier Airlines percentage off was just over one percent but I saw others offering up to 26% off.  I’ll take that. I believe all the sites offered free shipping. JunkCard states all their cards have free shipping and no expire dates. Discounted gift cards can be real, plastic cards or e-cards. They can be sent to you or someone else.

afternoon teatime tea lover gift baskets If you do not know what to get for the tea drinker on your gift list think about these ideas. First, shop at your favorite local tea shop or tea room, have them put together a gift basket for you, many will do that  and ship it too. Or bring the goodies home and create the gift yourself and ship it to your special tea drinker.  Support local, small businesses.  If you don’t have the time or creativity,  buy them a gift  certificate from their favorite local tea shop or tea room. If all you know is that your tea drinker loves tea and orders it when they go out, go ahead and take advantage of a discounted gift card from a national  coffee/tea chain. Save money, enjoy the convenience and know your tea drinker will be delighted. If they are not delighted, now you know they can swap it or sell it. You can’t go wrong.
