Spend till you get
7 of 8

Stores love people who shop. They love it even more when you come back and shop again. This year you can earn free gift cards by spending a certain amount of money in stores or online. At L.L.Bean, if you spend $25 or more in store or online, you get a free $10 gift card. Kohl's offers Kohl's Cash: spend $50 and you get $10 in Kohl's Cash to use within a certain length of time. No, this isn't a gift card, but it can be used to buy a nice gift.

Searching online and at your favorite stores, as well as signing up for stores' e-mail newsletters, will help you find out when they offer specials and gift card deals.
