It’s Presidents’ Day: Celebrate with a Sale!

Celebrate Presidents’ Day with a little shopping. Or maybe with a lot of shopping. Why? Because of the Presidents’ Day Weekend Sales of course!

Sears

Where are the biggest deals this weekend? Think off-season or end-of-season. Think fashion clothes and winter-wear, mattresses, flat screen TV’s and laptops. You’ll find the best deals on 2011 close-outs, left-over fall and winter clothing, and last year’s toys. Retailers are bringing in Spring, and need to unload inventory. That’s not to say you won’t find a good deal on a super Spring outfit, though!

Gift Cards For Last Minute Gifts

In a pinch to get a last minute gift? Consider a gift card! Several online websites let you custom design your gift card and deliver it via e-mail. If online shopping isn’t your preference, then consider a local brick and mortar retailer.

Online Gift Card Giving Options: Don’t want to fight the crowds at your local mall? Let an online gift card website be your gift giving answer. Check out these four easy to use online gift card resources:

Giftly.com Giftly is great for last minute gift-giving. Why? Because Giftly can turn nearly any local business into a mobile gift card. Want to send your friend in Atlanta a gift card for that trendy clothing store she loves? Using Yelp’s database, Giftly lets you pick your store, create your own personalized gift card, then send it either by e-mail or Facebook to the recipient. Within a few moment’s time, you can design, purchase and  have that gift card delivered. It’s just that easy. Want to learn more about Giftly? Either click on the above link and go directly to Giftly, or read this helpful article at The Wonder of Tech: Giftly – The Next Generation of Gift Cards

Giftly.com

GiftCards.com GiftCards.com offers several options for gift card giving. You can create your own or choose a predesigned card. Need a gift card today? Then choose the Virtual Card option and have an eGift Card delivered the same day. Have a MrRebates account? Purchase your gift card through Mr. Rebates and get an added bonus of a 1% rebate.

GiftCards.com

Groupon.com: Perhaps a Groupon gift certificate is the answer. You can purchase a specific deal at a great price and have it delivered to the recipient via email or smartphone. Or, you can purchase a Groupon Gift Card that allows the recipient to pick his own Groupon special. Either way, Groupon is a great option to simplify your gift giving. Want to learn more about Groupon and how it works? Check out my earlier blog: Are You A Groupon Groupie?

Groupon

Amazon.com: Amazon offers one of the widest selections of inventory available in one location. So why not an Amazon gift card that is redeemable storewide and never expires? It can be printed at home, or delivered directly to the recipient via e-mail, Facebook or free 1-Day Shipping.  Create your own personalized eGift card with the new “upload your photo” option. Another option: give an eGift with a suggested gift item! Choose an item you think your recipient might like and have a photo of that item put on the gift card. The recipient gets a customized gift card, but is not restricted to purchasing that item.

Amazon

Brick and Mortar Gift Card Giving Options: Don’t want to shop online? Many of your local retailers also stock a wide variety of gift cards. Here are four favorites that might be in your neighborhood:

Walgreens: Have a Walgreens nearby? Then check out their gift card inventory. From restaurants to clothing stores, music to electronics stores, Walgreens’ wide selection of gift cards make gift giving easy. And best of all: no crowds!

Walgreens

Walmart: Walmart brick and mortar stores stock gift cards from iTunes to Visa and Amex cards, restaurants, gaming gift cards and movie theatre gift cards too. Don’t have a Walmart nearby? Don’t want to deal with a crowded Walmart store? The online-only Walmart eGift card may be your solution. With a few clicks of your computer or iPad, your customized eGift card is on its way, arriving in the recipient’s e-mail within minutes of placing your order. Just remember though: eGift cards are only usable for online Walmart purchases, not in the store.

Walmart

Kmart-Sears-Lands’End: You will be sure to make someone happy with a gift card that is useable at all three brands! Use the handy online order feature and create your own custom design. Then pick your method of delivery: mail, email or self-print. Mailing the gift card can take 3-7 days with free standard shipping and as much as $8.99 for next day delivery. If time is too short or you don’t want to pay expedited shipping, then choose either the self-print option or have an eGift card e-mailed to the recipient.

Kmart Sears Lands' End

Your Local Grocery Store: Most major grocery stores carry a sizable number of gift cards, making it easy to pick one up while you are getting groceries. Or give the gift of groceries with a gift card to the recipient’s local grocery store.
