Update: This card doesn’t appear to be a viable alternative for the Home Improvement Gift Card, but it might be of value to some.
There may be an alternative to the short lived Home Improvement card frenzy of late, maybe.
I stopped into my local Wilco operated gas station and found this interesting rack which included some interesting gift cards.
The interesting cards included the Home Improvement & Decor card, the Entertainment card and the Restaurant card. These cards are loadable with up to $100 at a time and come with no fee.
They might be an alternative just with a different spend category bonus.
The only problem was there were no gift cards for any of the ones pictured above. I took one to the counter assuming they kept them there for security reasons, but it turns out the gift card setup is so new, the manager forgot to add the cards to the display slips and didn’t know where they were.
So unfortunately I haven’t been able to test these out.
I’ve only noticed these lately. Have you seen these in your local gas station?
