It's been a deal-riffic 2011 here at dealnews: from great deals on cameras, smartphone gadgets, iPad accessories, earphones, and just about anything else on your holiday shopping list. So while ensconced at the dealnews Worldwide Headquarters for Bargain Hunting (cleverly disguised as a gigantic coupon folder), we put our heads together and asked, "What else have we got?" Then we realized that we could help you land that ultimate gift for indecisive times: credit at some of your favorite businesses, from Bluefly to American Apparel.
$100 or $150 Bluefly Credit
Price: $50 or $75 (respectively)
Expires: December 23 at 3 am ET
Is It Worth It?: Scoop up a $100 Bluefly Credit for $50, or a $150 Bluefly Credit for $75 thanks to BloomSpot. Bluefly is the ultimate hook-up for the fashion obsessed. Update your wardrobe with the likes of Jimmy Choo, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Christian Dior, but remember that once you purchase this credit, you must use it all up in one trip (which isn't hard to do).
$40 FTD Credit
Deal Expires: December 22
Is It Worth It?: This one is blooming on the hotness meter as we speak! Click over to Groupon for 50% off FTD credits, where you'll get a $40 FTD credit for $20. The last time we saw anything this good was in May. If you're buying this for a holiday order, keep in mind that you must place it by December 23 for Christmas delivery. Just ask Santa: Packing fresh flowers in a sleigh is a bit tricky, ya know.
$30 The Popcorn Factory Credit
Vendor: Living Social
Deal Expires: December 21
Is It Worth It?: Om, nom nom. We love popcorn. Remember when you were a kid and those big tri-flavored popcorn tubs were the best family gift under the tree? (Sorry Aunt Suzie, but those matching sweaters were itchy.) Relive those delicious moments with this $30 The Popcorn Factory credit for $15. Shipping starts at $7.99.
$25 American Apparel Credit
Deal Expires: December 26
Is It Worth It?: Scandalous advertisements aside, American Apparel carries the best basics around. And with a $25 American Apparel credit for $12.50, you're set to be suited in the highest-quality cotton T-shirts around. Orders over $75 bag free shipping, but it'll cost you $5 otherwise.
$50 iTunes eGift Card
Is It Worth It?: Walmart offers a $50 iTunes eGift Card for $40, and which is a fool-proof crowd-pleaser. Here's how it works: You'll receive a confirmation email from Walmart within minutes of successful order placement, and a second email from email@example.com will arrive with your eGift Card PIN within 60 minutes. That means it'll arrive in time for Christmas, too!
