Fry's is offering several bonuses with gift cards for your holiday shopping!  Not only can you get 4x gas points for the purchase of most gift cards, some retailers like Home Depot, Kohl's, Ulta, and Children's Place are offering extra perks like $5 or $10 in free merchandise or groceries with your purchase if you download the digital bonus coupon.  You have to download the 4x the gas points coupon, plus the specific store coupons for the bonuses to get the maximum benefit.

For example, if you buy two Kohl's Gift Cards totaling $50 or more, there is a digital coupon for $5 off your grocery bill. Plus, Kohl's already started its Black Friday sales online and has amazing deals on small appliances like blenders, toasters, hand mixers and more. Check out the items that qualify for rebates here. You also get $15 Kohl's cash for each $50 you spend. After gas points, rebates, Kohl's promo codes and Kohl's cash, you're essentially paying pennies for these items.

Even if your favorite retailer isn't offering a bonus, the 4x gas points digital coupon is enough of an incentive.  For example, if you buy a $50 Target gift card at Fry's, you will get 200 gas points.  That's the equivalent of 20-cents off per gallon of gas, up to 35 gallons. Do the math, that's $7 dollars off. Plus, Target has a promotion through 11/23 for a free $10 Target GiftCard with a $50 grocery purchase.  You have to text GROCERY to TARGET for the digital coupon.  Don't forget to check your Target app for more discounts!

Want to really rack up the gas points? Download the 4x gas points digital coupon, buy a $100 prepaid Visa or Mastercard card at Fry's, then buy store gift cards with the prepaid card.  The prepaid Visa or Mastercard card will cost you an extra $5.95 for the activation fee, but if you use the full amount on eligible gift cards, you will net 800 gas points (400 for the prepaid bank card, 400 when you buy the store cards). That's the equivalent of 80 cents off per gallon of gas. Think that sounds too good to be true?  We asked a Fry's spokesperson and she said yes, customers are permitted to do that.  Keep in mind, it's only valid with the prepaid Visa and Mastercard cards that are a set amount such as $25, $50 or $100, not the variable amount cards.

Don't let these deals expire before taking advantage of them. First things first, check all of the Fry's digital coupons here. Happy shopping!
