Andrea Woroch, consumer and money-saving expert for Kinoli Inc., offers these tips for tipping with gift cards during the holiday season.
Anyone who stands on her feet all day would likely love a spa treatment. Delivery people who use their own vehicles, such as newspaper carriers, would appreciate a gas gift card.
If you're totally clueless, a grocery gift card from Whole Foods, Safeway, etc. is sure to please. Other gift cards to fall back on include those from iTunes or big-box stores, such as Wal-Mart and Target.
Check out websites such as GiftCardGranny.com, where you can buy discount gift cards at up to 50 percent off the face value. The recipient will never know, and you'll save enough to tip your newspaper-delivery specialist.
Check with local eateries for discounts on gift cards. At this time of year, some restaurants — big and small — offer bonus cards when you buy a minimum amount.
Should the recipient give you a blank look when you hand over his gift card, mention Gift Card Exchange Day — on Dec. 26, when he can exchange his card for cash through a variety of resellers.
