Five Things: Worst Places to Get Gift Cards From

keysmash five things featured image

Every Friday we’ll pick a theme and then five things (hence the name! We’re so original!!!!!) that fit that theme. Feel free to make your own choices in the comments, or send them to us on Twitter. This week we’re talking about gift cards that you get from relatives who don’t know you at all. They’re either to restaurants you hate or stores you have to drive an hour to get to, but they’re basically unusable.

Liz's pick: Gas stations

new-key-avi-liz-50x50I don’t own a car. So. Yeah. 😹

Big chain restaurants (via)

new-key-avi-meg-50x50Listen I live in the middle of nowhere. The closest Olive Garden is a two hour drive. I will never, ever use this.


new-key-avi-meg-50x50lol I don’t think I even really need to explain what a waste this would be.



new-key-avi-mel-50x50I would never use this. I know so little about electronics I didn’t even realize my HARD DRIVE was randomly falling out of my laptop. (I thought it was the CD drive).


new-key-avi-mel-50x50Pass. Just pass.

    Interestingly enough I have no idea what the last 2 are for! Also this is why you research and/or know the person before giving a gift card! Otherwise just give them cash. (But I will take all the gas cards in the world!)
