TIB’S SEASON OF GIVING 2017 (DAY 10): Mystery Gift Card

Mystery 2017

For this prize drawing, I’m not going to tell you what store or restaurant the gift card is for or how much is on it.

Is it a gift card for a big grocery chain or a small, regional fast food chain?

Is it from one of the places we already covered during this year’s Season of Giving?

Is it a used card sitting in my wallet with a balance of 42 cents that I’m too embarrassed to use?

You’ll have to enter to have a chance at finding out.

  1. Oh, boy! This sounds like fun! I wonder if it’s for a place near me? If not, time for another road trip!

  2. We did secret Santa at work this year and I spent half the day trying to figure out who pulled.my name because everyone else had gotten their presents and I didn’t. Finally I ask the girl who coordinated the while thing if she knew, and while I was talking to her this guy goes “Oh. I pulled your name.” He opens his wallet and gives me a very clearly used chik fil a gift card. I check the balance to figure out how much is on there because he didn’t tell me: it has 2.42. I smacked the card on his desk and walked away. Just tell me you forgot or you couldn’t be bothered. It would be less insulting.

  3. Mystery. Sounds like a good concept for a restaurant. You don’t order, you just sit down and are brought…something. Maybe you can identify what it is, maybe not. Even if it is something obvious like a burger, you don’t know what the meat is. Is it beef? Pork? Snake?

  4. Marvo, he was restless, he was ready to kill
    He jumped out of the window ’cause he couldn’t sit still
    Why don’tcha tell me ’bout the Mystery Card?

  5. I once used a dunkin’ donuts gift card that only had 27 cents left on it and the cashier definitely judged me. i have no shame

  6. I just want to say I love your blog! You guys help me keep my listeners on my radio station up to date with new items!

  7. Yes, I dont care about being judged for 42 cents. I know I wouldnt judge someine else. Lets see what this is!
