    I know I've seen some restaurants advertising that if you buy a certain amount gift card you will get an extra $5 or $10 one to keep. Anyone remember where they are doing this?

    at our Applebees, you get a $5. Bonus card for every $25. in GCs purchased. Don't know if the offer varies by area, but that it what ours had when I bought a GC this past Saturday 12/13. :confused3

    Just be careful - the bonus coupon/card may have a very short expiration!

    Is this a an actual GC or one of those "coupons" to take $5 off the next time you go there. Can you use more than one at the same time?

    How about some of the others?

    I bought from Chili's a couple of years ago thinking I was getting GC's that I could use only to find out that they were coupons for a future use. (I even asked when I bought them. I guess the hostess didn't understand the rules). Anyway, I am very careful now.

    Anyone else have information about Panera doing this? I can't find separate confirmation.

    Yep, just got an email that says they are doing $5 in 'bonus bucks' when you buy $25. The bonus bucks are good Jan. 1- Feb. 28.
