2014 Holiday Gift Card Bonuses

Here's a list I put together of all the extra holiday bonuses available from buying gift cards at some of your favorite restaurant chains.

Please note that a lot of the bonus cards are more like bonus coupons and are not gift cards per se. They therefore have no cash value and an expiration date. You should check with the respective restaurants for details if you have any questions. I've listed the expiration dates where I could find them.

Some of these are online-only, some are in-store only, and some are both. The company websites I checked weren't always clear but I'll make a note of it where I can.

I'll update the list accordingly if more deals come in.
