Last-minute holiday gift card deals


Updated 12/24/18 with new deals and expired deals removed.

As we head into the “holiday homestretch”, there are tons of gift card deals available around the Internet. I’ll keep this as a running list and update as things are added and go out of stock with Quick Deals to point back to this Master List between now and Christmas Day. Check back throughout the day as I’ll add more as I see them and feel free to share any of your finds in the comments. New deals are at the top of this post, so check back and new deals will be added at the top and expired deals deleted. Keep in mind that all expiration dates are flexible in the sense that any deal may sell out early, so don’t wait if you see one you think you want.

CardCash: 5% Off w/ promo code CHRISTMAS5

Direct link to this promotion

Dates: Unknown

Limit: Unknown

Key Details: Keep in mind that CardCash only guarantees cards for 45 days and they have been prone to problems at times in the past. I’ve bought from CardCash without issue a number of times (and also sold to them), but I wouldn’t recommend buying if you don’t have a very near-term use and probably wouldn’t buy as a gift aside from perhaps my spouse.
