After posting my “Mall Deals and Coupons You Might Like” post yesterday, I started thinking about mall gift cards. Below is a list of the best mall gift card deals and giveaways that are currently being offered in the Northern Virginia area.
Personally, I tend to not buy mall gift cards that often, because I can typically find a better deal on gifts by shopping sales and using coupons (get more bang for my buck). But, if you’re the type of person that likes to give gift cards (or perhaps you have a “difficult-to-figure-out-what-present-to-get-them” person on your list) OR you plan to do a lot of your own shopping at the mall, you might be interested in these mall gift card offers AND mall gift card giveaways:
SPRINGFIELD MALL: FREE $20 Springfield Mall gift card when you buy a $100 Springfield Mall gift card (purchased at the Customer Service or the Mall Office). Offer only good this Sat. Dec. 12th – Sun. Dec. 13th, 2009. Same as Manassas Mall deal (they have the same property management company). Limited to the first 250 customers (according to their website events listed here).
MANASSAS MALL: FREE $20 Manassas Mall gift card when you buy a $100 Manassas Mall gift card (purchased at the Customer Service or the Mall Office). Offer only good this Sat. Dec. 12th – Sun. Dec. 13th, 2009. Their Customer Service dept. confirmed on the phone that there is no additional purchase fee for gift cards (ie. you buy a $100 gift card, you only pay $100). This may be limited to the first 250 customers (like the Springfield Mall deal, although I was not able to confirm this with Customer Service). **Note: I did confirm with the new Walmart SuperCenter in Manassas Mall that they currently DO NOT accept Manassas Mall gift cards as a form of payment in their store, but are looking into doing this in the future… I can’t guarantee that they will accept mall gift cards in the future, but from what the customer service rep. said, it sounds like it will probably happen in the next year or so. Please call the Manassas Mall Walmart’s customer service at 703.330.5253 for an updated policy on their acceptance of mall gift cards.**
$250 Manassas Gift Card Giveaway! I was told by customer service that there will be giveaway greeters near the mall entrance for Walmart (weekday evenings 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm) and weekends (10 am – 7 pm?) giving out entry questionnaires to be completed and submitted for this giveaway. I was advised that this questionnaire may be available on their website in the next few weeks, which could be printed off and turned into the Mall Office. The winner will reportedly be drawn on Dec. 21st.
TYSON’S CORNER: Personalize Your Gift Card with the Recordable Gift Box! Tyson’s Corner has a new gift card package that lets you record your own message. Available through Dec. 24, 2009 for $3 at Guest Services with a GIVE Style Gift Card purchase. Please note, there is also an additional purchase fee of $3 for just the gift card. So if you buy a $100 gift card with personalized recordable gift box, you’ll end up paying $100 plus $6 in purchase fees.
THE FASHION CENTRE AT PENTAGON CITY MALL: There is a special giveaway taking place this Sat. Dec. 12th between 12 pm – 2 pm at Pentagon City Mall in which local radio station staff (from WASH FM) will randomly select 30 shoppers at the mall to win a $50 Mall Gift Card. No purchase necessary. For more details read here.
Let me know if you know of any other mall gift card promotions or giveaways in our area that I missed, and I’ll add it to my list!
