The holidays are all about giving–yadda, yadda, yadda. But they are made even more sweet when we get a little something in return. You know, like when you buy your mom an expensive perfume but you get some sweet make-up samples to try out or a cute tote bag for your groceries. Well, several Valley eateries are running with this idea and offering some-for-you-some-for-me gift card incentives this holiday season, sure to make great stocking stuffers for your loved ones–and you.
Fox Restaurant Concepts For every $100 in gifts cards you spend for Fox Restaurant Concepts, you receive a bonus $20 gift card.
