If your teenager is heading off to college this fall, why not send them off with some amazing gift cards and save money on your grocery budget all in the same shopping trip?
Buying gift cards at your local Food Lion grocery store before you shop can save you up to 23%. For a college student trying to cut corners and save money, this could be a great beginning for them.
So this is how this works. . .
Now through 8/20, shoppers can double dip on savings when they purchase select gift cards. Get a $10 coupon good toward your next shopping order when you buy $50 or more in gift cards from:
- Red Robin
- LL Bean
- Burger King
So — let’s break this money saving purchase down!
You will get a $10 off coupon + $3 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases which = $13 in savings on a $50 gift card!
Now that $13 can be used for other things that you can get for your college student. That little bit can go a long way for late night snacking in a college dorm.
Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery. For example, the Blue Cash Everyday® Card from American Express offers 3% cash back on groceries, and the Blue Cash Preferred® Card offers a whopping 6% cash back! Capital One QuicksilverOne®, AMEX EveryDay®, BankAmericard Cash Rewards and Citi® Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases. (This is a huge benefit of purchasing gift cards at grocery stores rather than drug stores!) In order to get your savings, coupon must be shown at checkout. See store for more information.
