Double Dip on Savings at Shaw’s and ACME + Amazon Giveaway #ShawsACME15

We have a $50 Amazon Gift Card giveaway here but first a message from our sponsor.

Next time you shop at your local Shaw's or ACME grocery store, buy gift cards BEFORE you do your regular grocery shopping and you can save up to 18%. Here's how:

To get started, when you purchase $125 worth of gift cards from selected stores (see store list below), they'll give you a $15 coupon for your next $25 purchase at the store.

To add to the savings, earn credit card rewards from the purchase of the gift cards. By using your favorite rewards credit card to purchase, you can earn points, miles, or a percentage back on your purchase. Some credit cards even offer increased rewards for purchases made at grocery stores. 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, and Citi Hilton HHonors credit cards also offer increased rewards for grocery purchases.

Now, here’s the math!
$15 off coupon + $7.50 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases = $22.50 in savings on a $125 gift card purchase! $22.50 / $125 = 18%.

To save even more...

With Black Friday sales starting soon, already for some stores, you can then take the gift cards and use them to save even more. For instance, Kohl's offers $15 of Kohl's cash for each $50 of purchases. Buy $125 worth of Kohl's gift cards and if you use them before November 29th, you'll get another $30 of Kohl's cash. That $22.50 / $125 becomes $52.50 / $125 or 42%

Here's the store list from which you can buy the gift cards:
  • iTunes 
  • Outback Steakhouse 
  • Toys R Us 
  • Google 
  • Sears 
  • Xbox 
  • GameStop 
  • Brinker Restaurants 
  • Domino’s Pizza 
  • Fandango 
  • Regal Entertainment 
  • Bass Pro Shops 
  • Aeropostale 
  • Petco 
  • JCPenney 
  • Hot Topic 
  • Sports Authority 
  • PetSmart 
  • Nike 
  • Kohl’s 
  • Lowes 
  • eBay
It isn't as confusing as it might sound and it will save you some money if you live near the right grocery stores.

And, now for the giveaway. The giveaway is for a $50 Amazon gift card and runs through 12/3/15.

This deal and giveaway is similar to one done earlier in the year, though the prize is now double.
