Halloween isn’t a time for gift giving but that doesn’t mean you can’t utilize discounted gift cards to cut the costs of your Halloween this year. 158 million Americans are expected to celebrate Halloween this year, spending on average $75.03 on décor, costumes, candy and fun, according to numbers from the National Retail Foundation.
With the holiday spending season about to hit, what better time to start saving than now. Here are CardCash.com’s top discount gift cards to get you in the Halloween spirit (yes, pun intended).
1. Gap and Old Navy Gift Cards
A great Halloween starts with a great costume, especially if you need to outfit kids. Gap and Old Navy have a large selection of costumes for the little one, and using discount gift cards at 8% stretches your dollar even further (their gift cards can be used at both stores and Banana Republic).
They also have adult Halloween t-shirts in stock for those who want to dip their toes into the Halloween spirit but aren’t plunging in head first.
2. Disney Store Discount Gift Cards
Disney Store gift cards don’t just let your princess fulfill her dreams for the day, but also let you choose from their Halloween home décor or adorable Trick or Treat bags. And if your boy is dreaming of that Buzz Lightyear or Iron Man costume it’s definitely worth checking them out, especially with 8% off using their discount gift cards.
3. Target Discount Gift Cards
Definitely the most versatile gift card of the group, one trip to Target or to Target.com is all you need if time is of essence. Load up on candy with their large discounted bulk selection, and of course check out the costume aisle.
But our favorite is their selection of affordable adult costumes on Target.com, including an awesome Beer Pong Cup costume. All this can be had at an additional 3% off with Target discounted gift cards, and don’t forget to stack the gift cards with any promotions Target may be having.
4. Petco and Petsmart Discount Gift Cards
Sales of pet costumes, though still relatively small, are the industry’s fastest-growing area with over 13% of people spending money to dress up their pets, according to the NRF.
Getting on the action is easy at Petco with 16% off their gift cards from CardCash.com, or 12% off at Petsmart. And don’t forget to enter their pet photo contests for a chance to win great prizes.
5. AMC Theaters Discount Gift Cards
There are always those in the, “Screw it, I’m way past Halloween” category and have no interest in celebrating. Well, the movie theaters should be pretty empty so it’s time to take advantage of 15% off AMC Theaters discount gift cards and enjoy your movies in peace and quiet.
