So, I want to get one of these Lowe's tax refund promotional cards, but I'm just not so sure how much to put on it. If you haven't heard of it yet, it's basically a gift card that you load up with an amount between $500-5,000 then they add 10% of your original amount back to the card on March 18th. I've already called ahead to make sure you can use this card in addition to other promotions or coupons and to verify that it never expires so it seems like a pretty great deal (imagine $1,000 + $100 + using an additional 10% off coupon or a 20% off promotion). Plus, my Gap rewards card (which I pay off at the end of each month) is doing triple points right now so I can earn an additional rewards card from them by doing this.
So... based on the fact that I've spent over $4,000 at Lowe's in the last 12 months alone (seriously- we're talking new kitchen appliances, a new sliding glass door, etc), what amount would you put into this card?
And yes, I think it would be pretty sweet to get a new mixer or vaccum for "free" just for paying ahead for my normal spending.
