RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -
If you plan to buy gift cards this holiday season, you are not alone. Experts say 80 percent of us will, but did you know many retailers are offering extra savings when you buy from them?
This is the newest trend in buying gift cards, and a bunch of stores around here are offering bonuses when you buy gift cards from them. Whether you choose to bulk up your gift or keep it for yourself, here's where you can save.

Food Lion gives you $5 off your next order when you spend $50 on 10 select gift cards. Spend $100, you'll get $15. The offer ends next Tuesday.
