After a Cyber Monday gift card? Aren't we all. It could really help when joining in on the best Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday shopping fun. Especially when you're not quite sure what to buy. That's when a discounted gift card could be your best bet.
With many shops struggling in the current climate, buying a gift card is a great way to show your loyalty, even if you don’t want to shop there at the moment. There are big perks in it for you too, in the form of Cyber Monday gift card deals. Retailers are either ‘topping up’ your voucher spend, or giving you a percentage extra when you buy a gift card.
There aren’t a huge amount of Cyber Monday gift card deals around, but so far we’ve spotted some from Apple, Disney and British chain Costa Coffee.
Best Cyber Monday gift card deals
Buy a Disney + gift card to save on a year's subscription A Disney + subscription will normally set you back £5.99 a month in the UK, or $6.99 in the US. But, as a Cyber Week treat, you can now sign up for a whole year for just £59.99 or $69.99 - that's the same as getting two months for free.
Save 15% on a Elemis Spapod gift voucher at Debenhams A great gift for the man in your life, this neat little kit includes a Elemis Spapod voucher and a sample size tube of Elemis' Time Defence Wrinkle Delay lotion. It's now £38.25, instead of £45, saving you £6.75.
Get an extra £5 when you spend £50 on a gift card at Superdry A great choice for teens, Superdry offer an extra £5 when you spend £50 on a gift card OR an extra £15 when you buy a gift card for £100. You can personalise the message before you add it to the checkout. Unfortunately, this card can only be used in the UK.
Why are there very few Cyber Monday gift card deals?
As we mentioned, there are a couple of Cyber Monday gift card deals around, but they are few and far between. We imagine the reason for this is the negative impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the retail sector, with some brands unable to afford to offer discounts quite as large as the ones they have in previous years.
Instead, the best way to recoup some of your Black Friday and Cyber Monday spending is through cashback websites like Quidco and Topcashback.
How to save money on cashback websites this Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Not sure how cashback websites work? It’s really simple. Instead of shopping directly through a website, you do so via a link from the cashback website. This means that although you won’t get money off your purchase straight away, you will receive a percentage total of the price back.
But be warned though, it’s not a quick process. Some cashback sites can take as long as a couple of months to return the savings to you.
The percentage you receive back will vary depending on the retailer, but you can expect to make the most significant profits on high-ticket purchases like white goods and tech.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
