This year I’m horribly behind on my Christmas shopping. My husband is the worst for me for shopping. No lie he returned every gift I gave him last year. Seriously. Every. Gift. I joked with him that he was getting one thing this year-a gift card!
I didn’t really want to just give him a gift card though so I thought of giving him a date night-with his hectic job and our three little guys he’s always wanting us to go out together so I thought I’d put together a prepaid special night for just the two of us.
We’re wanting to go to a concert in a nearby town coming up so I went ahead and purchased the tickets for us and began my search on Mastercard Marketplace for a good deal on a nice dinner out. I recently heard about the Mastercard Marketplace for the first time-it is a shopping site with discounts and special offers exclusively for Mastercard customers. I hopped over to check it out because I’m always down for a good deal and it was pretty cool that I could search for deals by category or by zip code.
I found an awesome restaurant I have been wanting to go to (I love some fondue!) and clicked over to get my offer! It took me right to restuarants.com where I was able to use my Mastercard to buy my certificate for our dinner out.
After I printed out my certificate and receipt as well as my concert tickets I of course had to package them up all pretty!
I rolled up the certificates and tied them with some bakers twine, then put them in a pretty little Christmas box. (And by the way-if you’re ever short tissue paper and need to fill a gift box, coffee filters work just fine!
