Gift Card Balances Dec 2019

December 8th, 2019 at 06:59 pm

Just tracking my gift cards. Usually I have more credit card rewards, but not so much this time.

$ 20 x 6 Target

$100 Regal
$ 25 AMC

$50 Cracker Barrel
$50 Olive Garden
$ 25 x 2 Jamba Juice (Birthday Gift)

$50 Kohls (Christmas Gift)
$ 50 x 4 Target

Note: Edited over time to remove used gift cards.


We never ended up using any of the restaurant gift cards last summer, as planned. I think we are just not "eating out" people, but is probably compounded by "kids busy with their own things."

Will get through these eventually, but may not be tempted to get more restaurant gift cards any time soon.

I did pick up $300 worth of Target gift cards today, 10% off. For several reasons, I never did the full $300 before. But today I just bit the bullet. I always keep a stack of $20 gift cards to keep on hand for last-minute gifts. The rest, will use towards grocery purchases. (Still have one $20 card left over from last year, there were some others from last year that we used this month. I kept the one because it was a "happy birthday" theme).

Edited to add: Received a $25 AMC gift card. Strange gift since we have no AMCs in our region. Will add to the re-gift pile with most of the gifts I have received to-date. We decided most likely we will hold for FIL's birthday after Christmas, so I wanted to make sure I wrote it down and did not forget.

    We bought $600 of Target cards. I thought we were going to get $900 but that didn't work out. Still, that saves us $60 off of future purchases which is good.

    I have a couple of gas cards with small balances for a brand that closed up around here. I have to check if they are good anywhere else. Either that, or I have to remember to carry them when we travel because they still have stations in other areas.

    The Thursday AFTER the Target gift card sale, my DH decided to buy a new laptop at Target. We hardly ever shop there, so I hadn't bought any gift cards. If I'd known, it would have saved him about $20. Oh well.
