Meijer’s Month Long Gift Card Sale, 10% Off Most Cards
I received an email from Meijer’s Mperks program today alerting me to a gift card sale they are having for members. The sale runs the rest of the month, ending March 31, 2018. The offer is for $5 off your next visit when you buy a $50 gift card. There are some exclusions but most 3rd party gift cards are included.
Here are the details for the offer:
- Runs through 3/31/18
- Can earn the reward up to 10x per customer (account?)
- Get $5 off of every $50 gift card purchase
- Excluded gift cards
- Meijer Gift Cards
- Gaming gift cards
- Sling TV
- Google Play
- HBO Now
- CBS All Access
- Amazon (I don’t think they even carry these)
- Visa, Amex, and Mastercard gift cards
The $5 rebate will be added to your account for your next shopping trip. It will not work on gift cards but it will work on pretty much everything else in the store.
Plan of Attack
My plan of attack for this is to purchase Best Buy gift cards. They are resealable for bulk sellers at around 90% or great for merchandise resellers.
Use any card that earns a grocery bonus when paying, the American Express Blue Cash Preferred or American Express Everyday Preferred are probably the best credit card options. Amex’s RAT team has been on the prowl but 3rd party gift cards haven’t been a problem, as far as I know.
But the best option would be if you have some discounted Meijer gift cards lying around that you bought from one of the many eBay deals. Remember that Meijer gift cards are some of the best on the market!
You could also purchase Target gift cards for personal use or to purchase Disney gift cards, if your Meijer doesn’t carry those.
This is a pretty solid offer that can be profitable for some or great for personal use, like Target gift cards. After buying $500 in gift cards you should have $50 in credit on your account to use in store on a future visit.
In the past I have been able to buy larger gift cards and get the full amount of the credit applied. I would get $25 in credit for a $250 gift card etc. So that is something to consider although things may have changed this time around.
What is your plan of attack for this deal? Let me know in the comments section.
