Exclamation Gift Card Promotions

HEADLYONE @ FatWallet (THANKS!) has started a thread of various national/regional chain and local restaurants that feature bonuses for purchases of their respective gift cards.

I have not researched if you can buy these on site at the restaurant or only directly thru a website, but it is likely that some of these you can purchase at the local restaurant -- and thereby also earn FF miles if they participate in IDINE.

The link at FW is as follows: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/mess...hreadid=668679


If you are aware of any other gift card promotions not listed on that site, please note them below!

Happy eating -- and earning!

Paragon "$40 gets you $60" gift card offer

I just received this one from Carver's, one of Paragon's restaurant chains, which accepts iDine in SMF area (hereabouts, that includes Hungry Hunter, Carver's and Cliff House):

"Two weeks remain for our $40 gets you $60 offer.
Get that last minute Father's Day gift..Or better yet,
get that tough Christmas gift out of the way really early!
We are offering all our guests a $60 gift card for $40!!
Visit our restaurant before June 23, 2007 or visit us online at
www.paragonsteak.com to take advantage of this offer. (NOT! No miles!)

$40 GETS YOU $60!!

Gift Cards may NOT be redeemed until 24 hours after time of purchase.
Gift cards will be issued in $60 increments only."

Obviously, I would not purchase online, but at my local iDine resto. This might provide a decent opportunity - purchase $60 gift cards for $40, get 400 miles? 50% purchasing leverage... yeah!

Arrow Paragon Steak - $60 GC for $40!

I just received this e-mail courtesy of Carver's restaurant:

To all our loyal guests..YOU'VE BEEN HEARD. Back by popular demand is our "$40 gets you $60" gift card promotion.

For a limited time we are again offering all our guests a $60 gift card for $40!!
Visit our restaurant before September 25, 2007 or visit us online at www.paragonsteak.com to take advantage of this offer.

Of course, no love or miles buying online, but ask at your local Paragon franchise if they have this offer - get miles and a 50% bonus when you buy the meals. I don't know if all the Paragon properties participate, but if you frequent one, it will well pay to ask:

Carver's Steaks and Chops
Carvers Creek
Hungry Hunter Steakhouse
Hunter Steakhouse
Mountain Jack's Steakhouse
The Whaling Company
The Cliff House of Folsom (Folsom, CA)
Tippecanoe Place Restaurant

Apparently, there is no limit on the number of GCs you buy, and if they are usable at any Paragon property (which sounds likely,) you may find these both portable and useful (as on days when your predilect property may not award miles, but then again, you have a $60 GC you paid $40 for...)
