CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A lot of us are looking to give experiences rather than stuff this holiday season, so how about saving a little money as you treat your friends to a night out?
Right now a number of restaurant chains with Tri-State locations are offering special deals to get you to buy gift cards.
- Going alphabetically, we start with Applebee’s, which will throw in a $10 gift card if you buy $50 worth of cards between now and Jan. 6.
- Bonefish Grill is also throwing in a $10 off coupon if you buy $50 in gift cards.
- Buca di Beppo will give you a $10 coupon for spending $50 on gift cards, too, but you have to buy by Dec. 31.

- Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, and Panera are all offering $10 bonus cards if you spend $50 on gift cards. And if one of these places is a family favorite, these deals can be a good way for you to save on your own night out.
