Buy $50 in gift cards at Applebee’s and get a free $10 bonus card. This offer is not available at all locations and isn’t available online, so make sure to call first. The $10 bonus card expires on February 29, 2012. (Many restaurants require you to buy $100 worth of gift cards to get a bonus card, so if you want to spend less, this is a good deal.)
