My son heads off to college this weekend and while he will only be a couple of hours away, he won't be close enough for me to hand him cash as he walks out the door like I do now.
I just partnered with Groupon and I am finding so many deals! The one I am taking advantage of today is the American Express Gift Card. There are 9 coupons available today to purchase cards. You can get free shipping, no service charges and free personalized cards to name a few. See all the options here: https://www.groupon.com/coupons/stores/americanexpress.com
There will probably be a few other deals that catch your eye, as Target, Amazon and Nordstrom all have great deals going on right now.
For me, this is the perfect option to get him a card that I can easily put money on without connecting it to my bank account. He can use it just like a credit card or easily get cash. I am excited for him to being this adventure to college and a little relived that I can easily get him money as he needs it.
