Check Groupon FirstIf your family is like mine, chances are you have a few relatives who prefer to receive gift cards for their favorite restaurants as their holiday gifts. To stretch your budget, take advantage of a holiday gift card bonus cash deal.

Be advised: The type of bonus may vary—they may add it to the value of the gift card, give you an extra gift card, or give you a restricted-use coupon. Check with the restaurant before you buy. We’ll keep adding to the list as 2014’s deals are announced.
