As someone who spends a LOT of time looking for deals, sharing deals, and sometimes even creating deals, I have become totally obsessed with Raise.com. The concept is so great .. buying (and selling) gift cards, at discounted prices. It only makes sense to buy these cards to maximize your savings. For instance, right now Raise is offering every member a $5 off coupon for your order over $50 with code RAISE5. They have $100 Starbucks gift cards on the site priced at $85, and they would be only $80 after coupon code. As an avid Starbucks drinker (love!) I have never before seen a way to save $20 on Starbucks drinks and/or gifts. . . until now
On the Raise marketplace, you can buy gift cards online at a discount price to stores like Kohl’s, Macy’s, Walmart, Target and so many more. They make it easy to search for your favorite brand, and you can organize the gift cards by price, discount, and value to find the best deal. They offer both physical gift cards for you to shop in stores as well as electronic cards for you to shop online. And I really love that for immediate shopping and/or gift giving, you can even print eGift cards for certain stores.
Do you like to eat out? (this mama does!) Raise.com also has discounted restaurant gift cards to some of my favorite restaurants, and if I can purchase gift cards at a discount, then I am already feeling better about eating out, especially since we usually only go out on nights when we can find a sale, or kid’s eat free event. One of my favorite places to eat is Olive Garden, and right now you find find discounted Olive Garden gift cards as well as many other great restaurants like Red Lobster, Boston Market, Panera Bread, and many more!
SELL! Along with buying gift cards, make sure you check out Raise to sell gift cards for cash! I cleared out our “coupon/gift card” drawer before the holidays and sold several gift cards and was very happy with the process. I did need the help of customer service at one point, and I was really impressed with how quickly they tackled my issue! I think that Raise.com is just one more awesome tool for those of us that love to shop and save online!
Don’t Forget: Save $5.00 off of $50: On top of the already discounted gift cards, Raise is offering every member a $5 off coupon for your order over $50 with code RAISE5!
