No, it’s not the inexpensive gas, the discounted eyeglasses, or the great travel perks — people talk about those deals plenty! (And rightfully so, as they’re legitimately amazing!)

Need a hint? Okay, we’ll just tell you: We’re talking about the gift card section!

In the grand scheme of life, gift cards rarely go on sale and 99.9 percent of the time, coupons can’t be used when purchasing a gift card. Take Target, for example. Target gift cards (for Target, sold by Target) only

go on sale

The cards are broken up into categories like movie tickets, theme parks, sports events, and more. Of course, what we care about the most is the restaurant category. The cards on offer tend to rotate (especially in stores), but just look at these options we found online just the other week.

We almost didn’t even click on the category for weight management and food delivery, but we’re glad we did because look at what else we found.

As you can see, the savings usually add up to around 20 or 25 percent off. That just becomes free money! Spend $80 and get $100 in gift cards! Whether you’re giving them as gifts (bundled together for one person or broken up for a few people!) or you just want to keep them to use yourself down the line, Costco gift cards are kind of a no-brainer if you find a store or restaurant you’re interested in.

Do you ever shop the gift cards at Costco? What sorts of deals have you found?
