Denver’s best gift card bonus deals, music lessons and more

posted by:

My friend and I had a long conversation about giving gift cards. Neither of us liked the idea of giving a gift card because there is so little thought in it – but we agreed that we both like getting gift cards! Go figure. My kids are at an age where their style/tastes are so different from mine that I can’t possibly try to guess what they want. So, we agreed it may be the time of the gift carding. Good thing there are some bonus deals when you purchase some gift cards.
