Is it ever okay to use a gift card on a date?
Marry a resourceful man.
Yes, but not until you're past the initial courting stage.
Not unless you are really "a couple". Screams cheap to me.
Gift cards are bought using the same value in dollars. What is cheap about it?
Why wouldn't it be? Money is money, doesn't matter what form. If your date is so superficial that they problem with it, then you have a pretty good indication that he/she is not worth a second date.
That OK. It's just like money.
No...that's just dumb. "Honey, you are so special that I took you out to eat with the gift card aunt Susie gave me. You are so special to me."
He better use it on me because if he all of a sudden don't have it anymore I am going to be mad and thinking some stuff.
How about "hey honey, I know we haven't been able to go out in a while since money is low.. But I just got this giftcard- would you want to go?"
Probably not the first one.
