Buy Visa Gift Cards, Get $10 #VonsJFY

Gift cards get a bad wrap as a holiday gift idea. They are perceived as a last minute, easy choice for the gift giver. Yet, it all depends on the way they are packaged.

Several years ago a former co-worker gave me a homemade movie themed gift box with a gift card inside. I loved it. It was clever. Even better, I think most would agree that money is a great gift in the form of a gift card. Like, a Visa Gift Card!

Thankfully several stores are offering discounts when you buy specific items. For example, Vons grocery store is offering $10 off on your next purchase when you spend $150 or more in Visa Gift Cards.

This offer is valid until 12/17/16. See store for more details, find your local Vons here:
