Gift cards. A great all purpose gift.

The back of most gift cards encourage you to register on a company website. I always thought it was just a good way to get spammed if you did.


This past spring, I was fortunate enough to win a gift card to Starbucks from fellow blogger nadine at savemoneyinwinnipeg. I bit the bullet and registered it.

And surprise, surprise!!!

I have gotten so many bonus things from Starbucks since! Starbucks sends out freebies and specials to registered customers. I have gotten a number of free coffees and smoothies thanks to my registered gift card. My card stays active even if the balance is zero.

There is also the benefit of being able to reload the card anytime via the website.

And what do you know….

No spam.

So, check out your gift cards and do some research online… You never know what kind of coupons or freebies you might be able to score!

Don’t forget my Hartmont candle giveaway. It ends on Monday at 12pm Central Time. You can read all about these fantastic handmade candles here.
