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.

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.
