Epic, can’t-miss, out-of-this-world, mind-blowing holiday gift card deals

Ah, gift cards: The gift that says, “I feel a social obligation to get you something, but I don’t like you quite enough to waste time or money on picking out something personal to who you are as a unique, complex human being.”

Be it a distant family member with questionable opinions about gay marriage or your kid’s least favorite teacher, there are a plethora of people crowding your to-buy-for list who you really don’t care enough about to spend a ton of time, mony or effort on. So to help you check off those obligatory giftees and save some cash, we’ve rounded up some of the best gift card deals we could find from major companies across the U.S.

From discounted gift cards to bonus $5 cards you can pocket for yourself, these deals will help you wipe out your to-buy-for list while also giving yourself the gift of saving some sanity so you can enjoy some holiday cheer (and make it a double!) with one less thing on your hectic holiday to-do list (although you may not want to check this list twice unless you want to risk having to double your chores before the holiday!).

Note that deals are accurate as of writing and may vary by location.
