I can't wait to get that first Starbucks gift card.....hmmmmm!
The American Gem Society occasionally offers free $25 gift certificates to promote participating jewelers. Each jewelry store sets their own policiy, but most do not require a minimum purchase. (Readers have requested these for Christmas and Valentine’s Day in 2007 and 2008, and used them to purchase free or almost-free jewelry.)
For Valentine’s Day, the American Gem Society is offering another $25 gift certificate, sent via email, to be used at any participating American Gem Society retailer. The gift certificate is valid through February 28th, 2009.
