Thanks for the information!

I'll have to check these out.

I have made some great purchases on Groupon. I only buy the real bargains and for places I already shop at. No issue redeeming coupons.

A lot of my friends use Groupon.com. I haven't yet, but they haven't had any trouble redeeming their coupons.

I think there is a web site that does that; I have never done it though. And if you are an AARP member, I think they advertise the discounted gift card services.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

I've never done it, but I'll be interested in hearing from anyone who has because it sounds like a pretty good idea. I've also heard of people selling unused gift cards, which also seems like a good idea because over time a lot of them begine to lose some of their value.

There was much rejoicing!

I discovered a bunch of websites that sell discounted gift cards. For example, I bought a $56 gift card to Kohl's for $49. I only buy them to places I know that I'll be going to anyway. I think there's a risk of buying discounted cards because they're a good deal and then ending up spending more money than you would've anyway.

I got a discounted card to Home Depot. My husband and I are going to need closet doors at some point, so I know I'll use it.

Has anyone else done this? Besides having to plan ahead, have you run into any problems (like getting bogus cards)? I'm just starting, so it would be great to know if there are any extra tips you all have.
