It’s time for another holiday that’s all about savings!

The newly created National Use Your Gift Card Day will be celebrated by participating retailers and restaurants on Saturday, January 18, across the country. The exciting event is going to feature tons of special discounts and freebies for those who shop with gift cards on January 18.

Gift cards are a popular present, but many people admittedly forget about them, and that money goes unspent. In fact, about $3 billion in gift cards is expected to go unused this year. National Use Your Gift Card Day is a great reminder to use your gift cards before they get lost in the shuffle. At RetailMeNot, we’re all about saving money, so we’re obviously all about this holiday!
