Thinking back last Christmas when you were given a gift card .... Did you use 100% of it?
A lot of gift cards are not being used 100% Some states allow the store to reap the benefits on leftover funds after a few years. Some other states considered unredeemed gift cards under unclaimed property laws and the $$$$$$ goes into the general revenue funds.
Yeah! I usually go over the amount on the card. If it's a gift card to a restaurant, the gift is usually for about $25. Two entrees and a dessert will cost over $30.
It all depends on your personality. If I get a gift card, It's a really special night out and I get an appetizer or dessert. I use every penny!
I used one from last year, I still haven't touched another one.
I have never yet received a gift card that I haven't used every cent! People usually know where I shop and buy accordingly. I tend to keep the gift card and top it up during the year as a "savings" plan toward that store, thus recycling the same card.
