Denny’s: ON CYBER MONDAY ONLY (Nov. 26), every $20 gift card purchase gets two things: a $5 bonus and a sweepstakes entry for a $500 Denny’s gift card. The e-mail contaning this offer expressly states that the $5 bonus will only be offered on Cyber Monday, but looking at their web page (http://www.dennys.com/#/specials/gift ), it appears to be already available.
Del Taco: Buy Gift Card get free food, depends on card value

Taco Cabana: $5 bonus with purchase of $25 gift card (end Dec. 31)

Also, remember that some (if not all) of these certificates are not treated as payment discounts, but as coupons, meaning that you’ll also save an extra 40-42 cents in sales tax.
