  • Starbucks: Get $5 of Amazon credit when you spend $30 or more (code SBUX)
  • GrubHub: Save $10 when you spend $50 or more (code GRUBHUB)
  • Netflix: Grab a $10 Best Buy e-gift card for free when you buy a $100 Netflix card. 
  • Uber: Grab a $10 Best Buy e-gift card for free when you buy a $100 Uber card.

Another option that’s good year-round? Use a site like Raise, where you can often get small discounts on gift cards from hundreds of major retailers.
