‘Tis the season for free stuff!  I always love holiday time because restaurants love when you buy gift cards…so much so, that lots of them will bonus you with a free card for you to use yourself when you purchase a certain amount. 


(Please…I buy them and use them all for myself!)


Here is just a partial list of the chains that will kick in a bonus gift card:


California Pizza Kitchen – Buy $100, get $20

Outback Steakhouse – Buy $100, get $20

Bonefish Grill – Buy $100, get $20

PF Chang’s – Buy $100, get $20
