Sometimes we have purchased gift cards for ourselves to stretch our money further (because we also get the bonus card).  I have also seen others suggest purchasing the gift card for yourself and using the bonus or reward card as a gift for a teacher, mail carrier, etc.

I will continue to update this list as I find more deals.
