There are arguments to be had about whether or not gift cards are a good present. Sure, some people like getting them. But the reality is that we often have to buy things for people we just don't know that much about. Maybe they're no more than an acquaintance or coworker. Maybe you just realized that you don't pay attention when they talk and have no clue about their interests. That's a problem to be solved another time. Their birthday is tomorrow, and you need the damn gift right now. 

Whether or not you like gift cards, it's worth knowing where you can get the most bang for your buck. There are constantly offers that will give you little kickbacks if you know where to look. This post, which is updated regularly, will help you know where to look.
