I save all my water bottles ( they now have a 5 cent deposit) and return them for change. When I get a bunch of change I turn it in at coinstar for amazon gift certificates. Which I then use for rewards for myself or gifts for some one who needs a lift.

I've recently been using restaurant.com to get gift certificates to local restaurants. I can get a $25 gift certificate for $10. If you google restaurant.com coupon codes you can sometimes find codes that will get the gift certificates for as low as $2. They are restrictions, depending on the restaurant (i.e. can't be used for alcohol, valid certain days, no holidays, need to spend a certain amount, etc.). If you can be slightly flexible, it's worth it.
Get restuarant gift certificates online for less than half the cost!
I utilize restaurant.com, they usually have $25 gift certificates for sponsored restaurants for $10, it really works! I signed up for their emails and today I bought $100 in gift certificates for $10 as a special! No expiration dates either!
There are usually some stipulations, like you can't use them on Fridays or Saturdays or you have to make a minimum purchase, usually $35-50. But there is no cost to join/no hidden fees!
