This weekend may be the best time for you to get the most out of you gift card.
January 4th through 6th marks the second annual "Gift Card Weekend." Participating retailers offer more savings and special offers just for using the gift card on those days.
The founder of Gift Card Weekend talks about the idea behind the sales.
"Consumers and their families get eight to ten gift cards a year, and there wasn't an organized effort to get you to come in and redeem, so that's why we founded Gift Card Weekend," said Brett Glass. "So we got 17 of the leading gift card companies, and they basically are banded together to give you special offers if you redeem those cards January 4th through the 6th."
Participating retailers include Applebee's, Bath and Body Works, and Olive Garden.
