Market Basket Father’s Day Sale: 10% Off All Gift Cards

Market Basket is offering 10% off on all gift cards (some exclusions apply) for Father’s Day. This is a rare offer as this is valid on almost all brands compared to previous gift card promotions that was limited to several select brands. Stack this with credit card deals like I did and get up to 20% off your purchase!

About Market Basket

Market Basket is a chain of 84 supermarkets in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine. It also operates under the name DeMoulas, the last name of the founding father, Athanasios Demoulas.

The grocery chain was made famous when an decades-long feud came to a critical juncture between his two sons. The story was top news in the media for weeks and ended when one brother bought out the other for $1.5 billion.

Creative Ideas For Gift Cards

I’m a big fan of stacking multiple deals together to get outsized savings. For example, you should use one of the top-rated cash back credit cards like the Blue Cash Preferred Card from American Express to get 6% cash back at U.S. supermarkets. Combined with this Father’s Day sale, you’ll get 16% off gift cards!

  • Citi Shop Your Way Card = If you’re lucky and received this card’s targeted 10% cash back on supermarkets promotion, then your total savings goes up to 20% with the Market Basket Father’s Day sale
  • Uber = if you don’t use ridesharing apps that much, keep in mind that Uber gift cards will also work with Uber Eats
  • Barnes & Nobles = use it to get an ongoing discount at Starbucks located inside a Barnes & Noble store
  • Gap/Old Navy = pair the gift cards up with a cash back shopping portal (for instance, Rakuten has a sign up bonus of $30 right now) to get up to 30%-40% back before using other coupons or promotion codes you may have

The Bottom Line

Getting 10% off on such a wide selection of popular gift cards is an excellent deal. While the fine print says there are daily customer spending limits, I didn’t experience this being enforced at the cash registers.

I bought $1,000 of the Delta gift cards for an out-of-pocket cost of $800 (savings of $200) and 10 of the $200 Speedy gas gift cards for $160 each (savings of $400). That’s a nice discount on my next flight and gas fill-ups.

Now that I’m done writing about this, it’s time to go back for more today 🙂
