Want to save on travel? Here’s the Magic of Stacking Gift Card Discounts on Black Friday

Imagine you're longing for a dream vacation package through Webjet, priced at $2,000. On Black Friday, Webjet has a 20% off promotion, which instantly shaves off $400 from your dream holiday's price. But hold on, there's more magic to sprinkle. Suppose you had the foresight to buy a $2,000 Webjet gift card from Gift Card Exchange at a 6% discount, costing you only $1,880. By utilising this card, you've cleverly pocketed $120 before even diving into the Black Friday deals! Now, couple this with the Black Friday savings, and voilà, you've trimmed $520 off your vacation budget!

Let’s break it down:

Original price: $2,000

Black Friday Discount (from Webjet, 20% off): -$400

Gift Card Exchange Discount (6% off): -$120

Total savings: $520 (or 26% off)

Magic, right?


Or Consider an Even Cheekier Gift Card Discount Strategy…

You're aiming to acquire the latest Apple MacBook, priced at $1,500. Instead of heading straight to an Apple store, you're savvy and you know retailers like Harvey Norman or Myer often offer discounts on Apple products during Black Friday. Let's imagine Harvey Norman announces a 15% discount on this MacBook, bringing down the cost by $225. What if you had smartly invested in a $1,500 Harvey Norman or Myer gift card from Gift Card Exchange at a 6% discount, costing you only $1,410? By using this card on Black Friday, you've already saved $90. Combining this with Harvey Norman's Black Friday discount, you're looking at an impressive total savings of $315.

Here's the breakdown:

Original price: $1,500

Black Friday Discount (from Harvey Norman or Myer, 15% off): -$225

Gift Card Exchange Discount (6% off): -$90

Total savings: $315 (or 21% off)

With this strategy, not only do you benefit from Black Friday sales but also amplify your savings by using a discounted gift card. A win-win!

Prepping for Black Friday Discounts with Gift Card Exchange

Black Friday is not just about the rush and the thrill of snagging the best deal. It’s about strategising, planning, and ensuring you stretch every dollar to its maximum potential. Here’s how to use Gift Card Exchange to its full potential:

Do Your Research:

Identify the brands you're most interested in. Are you looking to splurge on travel, cosmetics, electronics, or fashion? Knowing where you want to spend helps in identifying which gift cards to purchase.

Stack Your Savings:

Get your discounted gift cards in advance. With the deals we offer, they might run out quickly. The earlier you plan, the better.

The Exchange Card:

If you're unsure of where you'll spend, or want to keep your options open, go for the GCX Card. It keeps your choices versatile and lets you decide at the moment.

Combine Deals on Black Friday:

When Black Friday rolls around, shop with your brand-specific discounted gift cards. This way, you're capitalising on both the in-store (or online) sales and the savings you secured by purchasing your gift card at a discount.

In short: Why pay full price?
