Beyond Google Offers

Have you ever bought a deal on Google Offers? Their daily deals are similar to Groupon, Jewpon, Plum District, and all those other daily-deal sites I can't keep track of anymore. Basically, you pay X and you get X + Y. Or in non-math terms: pay $5 for a $10 giftcard, pay $20 for $50 worth of services, etc. Amounts vary per deal.

Anyway, if you're like me and you find a deal for a store you usually frequent, you buy the deal. But they come with an expiration date - GRRRR! So one find day back in December, I bought a $10 for $20 worth of stuff at Toys R Us, through Google Offers. I love toys! Two weeks ago I noticed that I had never yet used my deal and it expires April 15th! So April 15th shows up and I have NO idea what I want, but I do have an idea...

I add a $20 Toys R Us gift card to my cart and proceed to check out. I enter in the $20 off code and VOILA! It actually works on gift cards! Gift cards never expire so I can decide what I want whenever I'm in the mood. Btw, 99% of coupon codes and deal codes don't work on gift cards. So it pays to try it when you've got nothing else to lose.


  1. omg! thanks for reminding me that my jcpenny 50 dollar coupon code is going to expire April 30th!

  2. My pleasure. See if you can get a gift card on the site.
