Save up to 30% at your favorite stores.

If you missed the first 2 posts in this Saving Money on Christmas series: I’ve shown you how to save money on your online purchases and encouraged you to consider purchasing gently used items for your younger children for Christmas.

My favorite way to save on Christmas purchases (and everyday purchases for that matter) is to buy gift cards online at Plastic JungleAlmost all of our home improvement purchases on our house have been made using gift cards that I bought at an 8% discount from Plastic Jungle.  Plastic Jungle offers gift cards at discounts of up to 30% off!  Combine that with coupon and discounts in the store and you’ll save even more.

If you know you’re going to spend $100 at J.C. Penney or Sports Authority this Christmas, why not buy $100 in gift cards for $85, saving you an instant $15 before you use any coupons!  If you’re planning to give each of your kids or grand kids a $50 gift card, buy them for as low as $35 instead!  For those of you that shop mostly at Walmart- they even have Walmart e-gift cards for 2% off! They have restaurants, clothing stores, movie theaters, pet stores and more.  The gift cards in stock changes constantly so be sure to search for any stores you’re interested in and check back often. You can even set up an alert to e-mail you if they get the gift card you are wanting.

Plastic Jungle guarantees the cards that you are buying and there is no shipping or tax for you.  I have purchased 100s of $$ in gift cards over the last year from them.   Another similar website is Cardpool, but I haven’t used them personally to be able to recommend them.

How much will you save this year by buying gift cards online? 


  1. I have been leery of this, but feel better about trying a place that you are confident about – thanks!

  2. Okay, I’m signed up & waiting for alerts!
