A bunch of dining establishments are currently offering bonus gift cards to patrons who purchase a card at regular price.
We often see such offers during the holidays, but many people are unaware of the burst of “buy one, get one” restaurant gift card deals that occurs in spring.
There is no rule stating you must actually give these cards as gifts to others. If you enjoy a particular restaurant, buy yourself a gift card to use at a later date — and pocket the bonus card, too.
Following are 10 restaurants offering bonus cards when you purchase gift cards at the regular price:
