Kids are snug in their beds as I pour over the Christmas Gift List with my husband. For the most part, we can fill in what to get loved ones. We hesitate at the few hard-to-get folks. You know, the ones that tell you to not get them anything. It is always a struggle to get them something they don’t have, or don’t need.
I remember working many years in retail and trying to help customers fill their gift list. Almost everyone had one or two challenging gifts to pick out. With the postal costs rising, sending large packages across Canada to family is over-stretching our gift budget. When I worked in malls I would be done my shopping by Halloween. I do not like the crowds at the holiday time.
I remember how much fun it is to get a gift card. There is never any strife to return or exchange. I remember a favorite from last year when I was given an Empire Theatres gift card bundle. As a stay-at-home mom going to the theatre is a rare occasion. The bundle included coupons for the upcoming months for admissions and concession deals. We used every last one.
This year Empire Theatres has brought back the popular bundle. When you purchase $30.00 in Empire Theatres’ Gift Cards you will receive an additional $30.00 in Empire Theatre Coupons. For example: If you buy 3 cards for $10.00 each you get the bundle. If you purchase $60.00 you get two coupon bundles.
Coupon Bundle includes:
BOGO Admission (January 9 to January 31, 2012)
$2.00 off any Combo – excluding Kid’s Pack (January 9 to January 31, 2012)
$9.99 (Admission, Regular Drink, Small Popcorn) (February 1st to February 29th, 2012)
Buy a Large Popcorn, get a Large Drink Free (March 1st to March 31st, 2012)
$6.99 General Admission(March 1st to March 31st, 2012)
Get $4.00 off a General Admission Ticket(April 1st to April 30th, 2012)
Also, the Gift Tins are back again this year to be used as a “gift box”. Empire Theatres are selling them for $1.00 plus tax with the net proceeds going to Kids Help Phone. Anyone can purchase a Tin; you do not have to purchase $30 in Gift cards mentioned in this post to be able to purchase one. You can even purchase them online.

Now as a busy mom, I love online shopping. I adore that Empire Theatres allows easy gift card shopping on their site. I can put them on my wish list!
With the list done, my husband and I pour a glass of wine. Shopping done in our pjs with wine = stress-free!
