Gift Cards Available at Home Depot
About a week ago American Express released a new round of Amex Offers including $15 off $75 at Home Depot. This offer is really good because Home Depot sells a variety of merchant gift cards. This means you can achieve a 20% discount at the places you frequent most. (I have tested it and confirmed it works.)
Home Depot also sells Visa and Mastercard gift cards in denominations of $25 and $50 which may be a decent deal if you don’t have a need for merchant cards, although their fees can eat up the profit quite a bit. Either way, if you were able to register your Amex cards (registration is closed now), you should definitely take advantage.
This morning I was in Home Depot actually purchasing flooring for a minor remodel (I get 20% off that too) and decided to take photos of the gift card racks so you can see what is available. For me, I think the best deal is on gas cards. For example, Shell & Arco cards both resell for about 90% of face value, but purchasing them also could mean 20% off fuel.
In addition to fuel, they have the typical selection of cards for: prepaid phone service, restaurants, movie theaters and other merchants like Gamestop and Barnes & Noble. In other words, something for everyone. In my case, I purchased $75 Home Depot gift cards and then used those to pay for my flooring. A great deal no matter how you slice it. Below are the photos of all of the cards found at my local Home Depot.
