2019 Holiday Gift Card Bonuses, Deals, and Specials

It's that time of the year again where a number of restaurant chains look to score your holiday dollars by offering a deal or bonus when you purchase one of their gift cards. I've put together a list of holiday gift card deals and bonuses for reference.

Please note that a lot of the bonus cards are more appropriately described as "bonus coupons" and are not gift cards. They typically have no cash value, include an expiration date, and may have other terms attached. 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 deals are online only, while others are available at participating locations only so be sure to ask before buying.

Here's a running list of restaurant gift card bonuses/freebies available for the 2019 holiday season (I'll update if more come in):
