Just doing an update because we got some holiday gifts.
We've had that Regal gift card forever but I guess haven't used much during the pandemic. MH has a Regal specific movie pass and goes to the movies several times a week. He told me a few days ago he still had $6 left but he is taking MM(18) to the movies a lot during his break. I should probably just cross that out, they may have already spent that last $6. I don't think I have been to the movies since the pandemic started? Not Regal. We've been to the art house theater a couple of times, now that I think about it. That gift card is more used when MH brings MM or I along. & even with his movie pass he just gets so many points and free tickets. I should probably buy a Regal gift card for 2022 (so I don't have to figure movie expenses from our monthly budget) or ask for that for MH's birthday. Buying it ourselves would be a nice use of gift cash.
I insisted that MH use that Cracker Barrel gift card in Florida but they didn't use the entire balance. Those restaurant ones are all pre-pandemic gift cards too. Except for jamba juice, got some new gift cards this year. That's a "would never spend $6 of my own money on a smoothie" thing, but it's a nice gift. There's a jamba juice right by my work and I enjoy the treat sometimes.
DL receive a Kohls gift card. I wanted to make sure that we don't lose track of that. Might just trade him $25 for the gift card.
We bought $300 Target cards on discount this year and I donated one already ($100). In past years I stocked up more for dorm purchases and school supplies, but don't expect to spend much at Target this year. They remodeled our Target and it's terrible now. They no longer stock the groceries we were buying (mostly cat food/litter and granola bars, plus just random things that were very cheap at Target).
Starbucks is in the regift pile (no coffee drinkers here).
Edited to add: MH read my mind. He bought a Regal gift card for Christmas! I have no idea why, because we haven't exchanged gifts in like 20 years. It was just so weird because I was going to do that. He got $50 (came with $10 free concessions). I told him to just pick up another one. Not sure that will use the concessions gift card, but whatever. We can always regift those. He told me he *still* has that $6 left on the $100 gift card. That he has too many free tickets piled up so he has been using free passes for all the movies he is taking MM(18) too over the winter break.
