At one point today, you’re going to have to take a break from shopping and get a bite to eat, if only to build up more energy to continue shopping. Shop ’til you drop, they say! Bad idea, we say — but if you can’t curb your desire to hunt for deals, you’re in luck. You don’t have to stop your Black Friday shopping just to eat, because we’ve got two words for you: Gift cards.
Not only is this list full of food deals that’ll help you get fed on the cheap, but it’s also full of deals on gift cards. Some deals will even give you free gift cards just for buying other gift cards, and now suddenly you’re getting gifts for people who didn’t make the budget this year — you’re a hero!
