Once a year you can get 20% off gifts cards at ASDA when you buy them in-store. Usually, right in time for Christmas, this supermarket giant offer branded gifts cards at a huge 20% off. This means big discounts off your Christmas shopping, January sales shopping sprees or to use throughout the year. It’s a money saving bonanza!
ASDA 20% Off Gift Cards Sale Dates
The past few years ASDA has started their 20% off gift cards sale between the end of November and the beginning of December. The sale lasts for around 2 weeks so you need to know when to start looking.
There were other discounts given to customers in other ways during 2021-22. They have since reduced many of these discounts, so fingers crossed, 2023 will offer the usual 20% off on their own brand and other branded gift cards again.
*When we know the dates this year, we’ll update here.
How To Get 20% Off ASDA Gift Cards
The first thing to note is that the 20% off Asda gift cards need to be bought in store, you cannot buy them online.
Over the last few years, Asda have held the 20% off gift card sale right before Christmas, making it the perfect time to save money right when for many of us it’s a pretty expensive time of year.
Although Asda don’t release the dates they hold this sale until right before the event begins, it’s a fairly safe bet to plan for it being held somewhere between late November and early December. It generally lasts for around two weeks so you have to be ready.
The ASDA Gift Card Sale
Not all gift cards that Asda sell have gone into the 20% off gift card sale in pervious years. However, that said, there’s a huge selection that do and they’re for well known branded stores, which you can then spend either in those shops or online.
It won’t be known which gift cards will be included until the gift card sale starts. If you’re planning to use these discounted cards during the Holiday period, there’s two ways you could go about it.
Firstly, you could plan your Christmas gifts around the cards that are on offer. It means a bit of last minute(ish) planning, but for a 20% saving it’s likely worth it.
The second way you can use them is to simply gift them to someone for them to shop themselves. There’s also a couple of other ways you can save money with these discounted cards.
If you’re planning a big purchase in the New Year and the store you might buy from has a gift card in the Asda gift card sale, buy the cards at 20% off to save money on your planned buy.
Anything else? Yep! Does your favourite shop brand have a gift card in this sale? Buy them at the discounted price and use them in the January sales for further money off on top of the sale price. Win-win!
What Gift Cards Do ASDA Discount?
Asda sell over 60 different branded gift cards, although as we said, they don’t all go into the gift card sale. Alongside their own brand gift cards, you’ll find all the usual high street store names there.
As always with gift cards, check if they have a use by date and make a note of it if you’re not spending straight away, and be aware that if the store you’ve got a gift card for closes down, you won’t be able to get your money back and it’ll be lost.
