UPDATE: Cafe Rio and Cheesecake Factory no longer available.
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying this time of year and not getting too caught up with all the hustle and bustle and gift craziness...but here are a few last minute deals I have taken advantage of that I thought I would mention:
1. Cafe Rio (one of the best foods on the planet!) has a promotion going on right now. When you buy a $25 gift card you get a free $10 gift card. This is great especially since they almost never run promotions or have coupons. That's essentially 30% off. I asked them and they said you can get this deal online as well, but there is a $1.95 shipping fee and you won't see the free $10 certificate in your cart, but you will receive it in the mail. Deal is good until Christmas tomorrow so act fast (maybe they'll extend it though)! I stocked up for the whole year:)
2. Shell Gas Stations - Gas is cheap right now, but why not make it cheaper? If you have American Express (AMEX) credit cards you can get $5 off $30 purchase at the pump. That's essentially %16 off your gas. You have to first login to your AMEX account and click on "AMEX offers for you" and look for "Shell" and then click "Save Offer". All of my cards had the offer so I'm assuming most people will have the offer if there are shell gas stations where they live. Offer is good until Feb 8th 2015. This was perfect for me as I'm traveling for Christmas. I signed up all 10 of my AMEX cards so all my gas will basically be under $2 for a couple of months. Sweeeeet! Note: the best way to max the deal is to put $30 in your tank at a time.
3. Cheesecake Factory - I love the cheesecake factory cheesecake and we usually get it for birthdays. Right now until the end of the year when you buy a $25 gift card you will receive certificate for a free slice of cheesecake that is redeemable from 1/1/15 to 3/29/15.
I love these deals cause they are purchases I would normally make and to save some money on them is great. If there is a deal/discount for something that I normally wouldn't buy, then in the end I'm probably spending more money then saving, so I would only recommend these deals if they are products you use!
