One thing I love most about is the huge variety of gift cards regularly included in its auctions. Two of my favorite gift cards are Bed, Bath & Beyond and Home Depot.

Of course, it is always nice to win those gift cards. Even if I do not win, however, and use the Buy-It-Now option (pay retail to get all my bids back free), I know it is money I would eventually have to spend, anyway. As a home owner, I know I will always need to shop at those two stores sooner or later.

I recently renovated and updated one of the guest rooms in my house and that can become rather expensive. Thankfully, the gift cards I won on nearly paid for everything I needed to get the job done, so I had very little out-of-pocket expense.

I used my Home Depot gift cards to buy paint for the ceiling and walls, as well as the paint rollers, brushes, tape and pans. My Home Depot gift cards also covered the steam cleaner I needed to steam clean the bedroom carpet.

I used my Bed, Bath & Beyond gift cards to purchase the duvet, mattress cover, sheet set, matching curtains, pillows, bed skirt, mirror, two scatter rugs and picture to hang on the wall.

Thanks to my renovated room looks awesome!
