Dollars for Geckos – Deadline Extended!

Orders due Monday, November 17, 2014
Dollars for Geckos (for the 2nd year) is a way for Gullett to raise funds without it costing you a penny. Gift cards are offered to you at face value, but the stores allow Gullett to purchase them at a discounted rate. So, if you buy a $20 gift card, you pay the same $20, but Gullett receives the discount offered by the vendor – anywhere from 2% – 20%!
