Get 10% off at Home Depot!

Thanks to an email from Chase advertising their Rewards Plus program, coupled with several recent trips to Home Depot making their logo catch my eye, I clicked through and looked at the extra rewards for At the time, they were offering 10% bonus rewards! It has since dropped to 5%, but that's still better than nothing, for sure. What makes this special is that their offer includes the following: "Eligible on the purchase of gift cards." Most merchants include the word "Not" at the beginning, and so I was fearing it was a typo.

Honestly, I don't think that I'd ever shop at I think I'll always want to see the hardware-type products first. However, I'm happy to buy gift cards online - especially the kind you can print off yourself! So, I went ahead and bought a $50 gift card to see if it actually worked. Today, I got the notification that I earned $5 in bonus rewards! Gift cards work just like cash, so this is in addition to any other sales or coupons you take advantage of. Not too shabby.

I'll be keeping my eye out for other merchants that offer bonus rewards on gift cards. In fact, the Chase Rewards Plus site has a link at the top called "Gift Cards." It's not clear if this list is 100% accurate or exhaustive. Nothing else really stood out to me, either. Ah well!

See, that's funny because no one reads it. Especially not after 5 months of not updating...
