It's that time again. You know, the back to school time of year! It's the same thing every year. Once we hit the back to school time, the rest of the year just flies by. Soon it will be Halloween, then the holidays! It will creep up on us like it always does. It may only be August still but once school starts for the kids, the days fly and boom, the holidays! Don't get caught needing gifts at the last minute and not having the extra cash handy.
It's NEVER too early to get started with holiday gift shopping or finding deals involving saving money on the purchase of gift cards so you can load up on those gift cards NOW, save the money on them NOW but use the gifts cards later for those gifts.
In fact one of my favorite tips is looking for deals all year long to use for the holidays. Looking all year long at clearance racks, sale racks, using cashback websites for purchases all year and saving up the money, doing surveys for survey companies and saving up all the money and gift card promotions. Any time there is a gift card promotion that gets you money off your gift card purchase, a rebate, gas points etc, you should try to take advantage if you can. Earn those extras and put the gift cards away for the holidays.

You guys just know that I love to save money in any way possible. Even better than just saving money with one promotion or deal, double dipping gets me excited!
This deal from Office Max and Office Depot stores has me super excited and I want to share with you all!
From 8/21 through 8/27, you will save $15 off your purchase of $300 or more in Visa gift cards. Here is where the double dip comes in. Use your rewards credit card and earn those extra miles, points or percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at office retailers. For example:
The Chase Ink Cash® and the American Express SimplyCash® credit cards offer 5% cash back on purchases made at office supply stores.
5% cash back adds up to an additional $15 savings on a $300 Visa gift card purchase, for a total of $30 off with the $15 off Office Max/Office Depot deal!
Do you see why I am excited now? It's pretty rare to get gift cards at any type of discount but to be able to double dip a deal on gift cards is fantastic!
Load up on Visa gift cards and use them later when the holidays arrive to make gift purchases a little easier on the budget. Or even use them now for that back to school shopping or anything else you'd like.
