Groupon, one of our increased holiday cashback merchants with 5% cashback, is now selling Groupon gift cards (both eCards and plastic cards)! The cashback rate is a little lower (3% on gift cards) but it’s still a fantastic deal.
Why I think Groupon gift cards make a great gift for us frugal folks: you can spend, for example, $25 on a gift card… and the recipient will be able to get double the face value ($50 more or less), depending on which Groupon they choose! That’s another plus: the recipient can choose what deal they want to take advantage of. You don’t have to worry that you got them a gift card to a store where they don’t like.
