7) Use Discounted Gift Cards
No, this isn’t a scam. It’s perfectly legal to do and people have been taking advantage of this brilliant idea for a while. There are websites (like GiftCardGranny.com) selling hundreds of gift cards for anything imaginable at discounted prices. This is a great way to save money on groceries as well as clothing, travel, gas, and restaurants. This site has thought of every category when it comes to saving money! So, how do you save on groceries? Search the site by brand or category and you’ll find pages of gift cards that cost less than the actual value of the card. For example, Whole Foods offers gift cards that are 5% off the card value. Target offers cards that are 8% off. Omaha Steaks has cards for nearly 10% off the value. Safeway, Costco, Wal-Mart, Honey Baked Hams – even Nutrisystem – all have discounted gift cards on this site.
