Discounted “work-perk” gift card trick, including John Lewis
I’ve written in detail how you can get access to discounted gift cards, including John Lewis and Marks & Spencer, if you open up a Scottish Friendly ISA.
Amazon gift card bonuses
Over on my Amazon deals page I’ve got a couple of deals where you get extra money when topping up your account or buying a gift card. These offers tend to run most of the year, though they are normally only for people who haven’t done either of these in the last three years.
Monese gift card discounts
If you have a Monese bank account you might be able to nab a promotion which knocks decent chunks of cash off gift cards. I’ll update here when new ones happen. They go fast though, so don’t delay!
I’ve bagged four of these since Black Friday offers, saving me around £80. So even if you miss this one it’s worth opening an account in case more come along. You do this via the Monese app.
