I saw a commercial on television for a local HVAC maintenance corporation. I was enjoying football on Thursday night and the commercial right after the halftime report was the HVAC maintenance company was offering gift cards for the winter time holiday. The HVAC maintenance company was having a special holiday sale, then every gift card purchased came with a free gift card for the same amount. There was a disclaimer on the bottom of the television, but the words were too small to read. I called the HVAC maintenance company because I was curious about the sale. The lady on the cellphone told me more information and I began to realize that the sale was actually too enjoyable to be true. The gift cards had to be used for a purchase over $500 and the gift cards had to be used by the same person. I could not buy $150 worth of gift cards for me and then supply my parents $150 worth of gift cards as well, but after hearing all of the stipulations and restrictions. I decided that HVAC maintenance shop gift cards were not a really enjoyable plan for a holiday gift. It would have been useful if I could have combined some of the discounts, but that was not the case. I still do not assume what kind of gift I am going to get for my dad for Christmas. I genuinely thought this could be a practical gift since my dad has an older HVAC system. I guess I need to keep searching for the perfect holiday surprise.
