Top 10 Gift Cards for Mothers Day

May 9th is Mother’s Day. It’s okay if you forgot because it’s not too late to take advantage of some discount gift cards and creative ideas to really make this Mother’s Day special.

I really like Mother’s Day because it’s different from most of the other holiday’s out there. On Valentine’s day, my girlfriend forces me to give her a gift, even though I tell her that I give her my love everyday. But on Mother’s Day, I really enjoy showing my Mom how much I appreciate her for all of the love that she has shown me throughout my life. This includes all of those homemade meals, last minute science projects, and folding my laundry.

Take my advice and do something special for mom this year. Use discount gift cards to save a little on your way and I’m sure she’ll appreciate you being frugal.

Top 10 Must Have Mother’s Day Gift Cards

1.) T.J. Maxx

My mom loves giving more then getting. A discount gift card to TJ Maxx allows her to purchase clothing for herself, but usually she spends it all on her grandkids. TJ Maxx gift cards can be used at all of the A.J. Wright stores including Homegoods and Marshall’s. Mom’s everywhere love Homegoods for their unique home decor & furnishings.

2.) P.F. Changs

Some people might think P.F. Changs at #2 might be a little high on the list, but it’s something new and different. P.F. Changs is a unique dining experience and will definitely be appreciated by mom when she goes out and uses her gift card. Maybe you’ll get lucky and she’ll leave Dad at home and take you!

3.) Marriot

If your Mother loves to travel, purchase a Marriott Gift Card and either give it as a gift or use it to book hotel rooms online or over the phone. What could be better then her opening a card with reservations to one of the hundred Marriott locations worldwide.

4.) New York & Company

Make mom feel young again with a gift card to New York and Company that sells a large variety of women’s fashion and accessories. On their website, they even have a section dedicated to Mother’s Day that will make your decision or hers that much easier

5.) Barnes & Noble

While you might have a Kindle, iPad, or Nook, the chances are that your parents still prefer old fashioned hardbound books. Personally, I prefer the same and still love the feeling of walking into a book store and browsing the selection. Barnes & Noble is America’s largest bookseller with more choices then anyone could ever read in a lifetime.

6.) Bath & Body Works

Lotions, Soaps, candles, and more scents than your nose can handle. Bath & Body Works has great gift baskets that are already assembled for Mother’s Day. A great gift without having to do the work of searching and smelling.

7.) Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn is the home enthusiasts dream with so many different options. Gift Cards to Pottery Bern can also be used at West Elm or Williams Sonoma making the choice a no brainer when it comes to Mother’s Day. Let your Mom choose her own gift or save an extra 10% when you head to the store with a discount gift card.

8.) Payless Shoe Source

With over 4,500 locations Payless Shoe Source is the best shoe store to get the most value for your money. Choose from their new summer line of shoes, sandals, and flip flops for the whole entire family.

9.) Coldstone Creamery

It’s about to be summertime and that means you will do anything to cool down. A gift card to Coldstone Creamery is a great seasonal gift that will let Mom take out the kids to get ice cream or you if you’re lucky! Make sure you leave the workers a tip so they’ll sing you a Coldstone jingle.

10.) Gap

The Gap has been making fine clothing since 1969 and Mom would be able to find something fabulous to suit her needs there. If she wants more casual clothing, she can visit Old Navy or for female athletic gear, she can visit Athleta all with the same gift card.

Free Gift Card Giveaway Video

Recently on Facebook we gave away a $25 Brinker International gift card to one lucky fan. In order to enter this contest, all you needed to do was list your top five favorite gift cards on our Facebook Fan page. We took all of the names of those who commented and put them in random order on two sheets of paper. You can see all of the names in our photo album here. We then posted the paper on a board and our CEO, Kwame Kuadey threw a dart to pick a lucky winner. This way of picking a winner has really gotten a lot of people excited about how we chose the winner and how fun it was to be a part of.

With all the positive feedback we got on our facebook and twitter pages about how close people were to winning and how much they’re looking forward to the next one, we’ve decided to launch another contest to be announced soon. Thanks to everyone who entered this last contest as we will be hosting more all Spring and Summer long. Please note that even if you participated in this contest, you will have to enter the new contest again.  Here is the video from our drawing.

Turn Store Credit into Cash

Have you ever gone to return something to the store without the receipt? It happens to many of us at one point in time or another. However, instead of getting the cash we want, the retail location issues you a store credit. Store credit cards, otherwise called Merchandise credit cards are almost the same as gift cards except some stores like Anthropologie or Anne Taylor Loft do not accept merchandise credit for online purchases. However, store credits from some of the most popular retail locations like Sears, JCPenney, Williams Sonoma, and Pottery Barn can also be used to make purchases online.

If you are stuck with that store credit and have not had the chance to go back to the store location to spend it, you now have another option. GiftCardRescue.com will buy your store credit card and pay you cash. Just go to our sell for cash and instantly get a quote for your store credit card. It’s a simple, safe, and secure process (for more information, click here). We’ve been in business for over two years and have had great media coverage in many of the leading national publications, including the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. After you get your quote, sign up for an account and mail your store credit to us.

Once we receive the card and verify the value, your check will be mailed to you in less than 48 hours. Alternatively, you can sell your gift card for Amazon.com credit

Recently, Whole Foods Market has been under attack by scammers who spread the fake fan page virally through facebook. Fan pages continue to pop up with names like “Whole Foods Market Free $500 Gift Card Limited -first 12,000 fans only” and “Whole Foods FREE $500 Gift Card! Only Available for 36 Hours” according to a report by CNET. However, as soon as these pages are taken down more seem to pop up.

How to Avoid Facebook Gift Card Scams

  1. If it seems too good to be true, it is.
  2. Always check the retailers homepage. Whole Foods only announces contests on their website.
  3. Look out for the red flags highlighted in the image.

Gift Card Balance Check Website

If you have a few gift cards that have been lying around for a while, you probably do not know how much money is on them. The easiest way to check the balance on a gift card is to look at the back of the card for information on how to check the balance. Most gift cards will provide you a phone number or a web address to check the balance. However, some cards only provide a phone number. Others only allow you to check the balance of the card only at the store.

Here is an easy way to check the balance on your gift card. Go to http://www.giftcardbalancenow.com/balance and you will be provided information on how to check your gift card balance. The website provides information for over 200 major gift cards.
