If you plan on winning the Quicken Loans $1 Billion perfect bracket contest sponsored by Warren Buffet this will probably be the last time you use discount gift cards. But since the chances of becoming a billionaire on your own are greater than the chance of filling out a perfect bracket, discount gift cards are a great way to save until you earn that first billion.
And with your favorite team going dancing in this year’s NCAA tournament we wouldn’t want the cost of watching and celebrating to exceed your budget. With that we’ve come up with what can be said are the “First Four” gift cards to save with this March Madness season.
1. Dick’s Sporting Goods and Sports Authority discount gift cards
At savings of 17%-21% off these great gift cards get you in the game with great fan gear to wear while cheering on your favorite team, and all the athletic gear you need to mimic the game winning shot in the gym or driveway following the game. These stores are fully stocked with spring just around the corner, and using discount gift cards from CardCash.com you can save on anything in-store.
2. Applebee’s discount gift cards
Applebee’s Fan Zone is a great place to watch the game whether your away on business or hanging with a group of friends. Using CardCash.com discount gift cards at 11% together with their 2 for $20 meal deal is a great way to save, and then head over to the bar to bask in the glory of victory, or drown out your sorrows in defeat.
3. Starbucks discount gift cards
Half of the March Madness experience is the brackets, predictions and the rehashing of the games. What better place to do that than your local Starbucks, with discounted Starbucks gift cards at 22% off. These are especially handy for when your team plays in the West regional where games can end in the wee hours of the morning. And the last time we checked your boss or professor doesn’t really matter what time the game ends; 9:00 am is 9:00 am.
4. Airline discount gift cards
Are you lucky enough to score tickets to the game? Then make sure to save on airfare. 5% off Southwest, American Airlines and United gift cards can help you stretch the savings, especially if you have to book last minute once your team advances to the Sweet 16, or better yet the Final Four.
Wherever you are spending your money this month best of luck to your favorite team!
