Does the idea of saving as much as 35% when shopping, without the need for clipping coupons, sound appealing? And, how about stacking that savings on top of a store sale? With the new partnership between eShopedia and GiftCardBin, it will become easier for consumers to find such deals and take advantage of them.
eShopedia, through its website, Blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account, is a direct source for promotions offered by companies such as Gap/ Banana Republic, Target, Office Depot, and many others. Furthermore, eShopedia will occasionally offer cash-back promotions as well as special eShopedia-only discounts to certain stores. Add the savings from a discounted gift card and the overall savings to a consumer can be substantial. With Valentine's Day upcoming, buying flowers online can be a perfect example of how a store promotion, coupled with a discounted gift card, can equal more money in one's pocket.
"Last Valentine's, one of our customers saved more than 50% on a beautiful bouquet of flowers," says eShopedia Co-Founder Jack Chiang. "He purchased a unwanted gift card for 35% off, then paired it with a 20% off and a free shipping promotion."
"Discounted gift cards are essentially built-in coupons," says GiftCardBin COO and Co-Founder John Topete, "and as a pioneer in the secondary gift card market, we strive to offer the most aggressive discounts to our customers." But unlike regular coupons which usually have "one per customer" restrictions, the gift card savings can be stacked on top of store coupons and store promotions. And for those who have reward-based credit cards? No problem; in fact, it's even better because these discounted gift cards can be purchased with credit card. So not only can one get the reward points for using his credit card, but he also saves money by paying less than full price for a gift card.
The partnership will make it easier for eShopedia and GiftCardBin to pair up store promotions with available discounted gift cards. "We are working together to develop a customized data feed so we can synchronize GiftCardBin's inventory with our list of current promotions," says Chiang. "We are very excited about this partnership, and John and Nadir (GiftCardBin’s CEO and other Co-Founder) have been very generous with their time, despite their hectic travel schedules. We believe it will be mutually beneficial for both companies." Customers can stay abreast of these opportunities to combine savings by following eShopedia on Facebook, Twitter, and eShopBlog, with future plans to integrate additional ways to inform the consumer.
