There's a gift card deal at A&P, Pathmark, Food Emporium, Waldbaums, Superfresh and Food Basics: buy a $500 gift card (such as a $20-$500 Visa) with a $5.95 per card fee, and get $60 off grocery shopping, in the form of 3 $20 coupons. You could do this 2-3 times over the course of the promotion to earn $120-$180 or more in coupons for free groceries.
I'm in NYC so I pass Food Emporiums all the time, although I confess I've never gone inside one until now, after a friend pointed out this week's Food Emporium ad to me with the gift card deal. I usually do all my shopping at Whole Foods (especially now that I can earn 5X points on all Whole Foods spend) and at Trader Joe's. But Food Emporium, and no doubt A&P, Pathmark, etc. have the basics, so even if you just need to stock up on paper towels, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, batteries and the like, you can likely find a good use for $60 in free groceries. Of course, if you're feeling ambitious and want to cook something, feel free to check out some of my recipes.

This is really the highest value use, if you're working on minimum spend for a good credit card signup bonus. For me, this was a new credit card which had a $5000 minimum spend. Also see Meet Minimum Spend on Credit Cards: Top 20 Tips
