When you can’t get home for Thanksgiving with the family, enjoying dinner with friends can be the next best thing.
Sixteen percent of adults celebrated Friendsgiving in 2017, according to Good Housekeeping’s “State of Thanksgiving in America” survey and it can be an affordable way to enjoy the holiday.
Here’s how to plan a Friendsgiving event for maximum savings using the right credit cards.

Use coupon, cash back apps for more rewards

Pairing rewards card purchases with coupon apps can add to your Friendsgiving savings.

Sites like Promocodes.com, Coupons.com, RetailMeNot and CouponSherpa feature discount codes you can apply to your online cart or use in-store.

Caponera says Promocodes.com can yield savings on party supplies, party favors and decorative items from top brands.

Groupon and LivingSocial are also good for finding daily deals on wine and food. Just be sure to take note of whether deals apply to individual items or bulk purchases so you don’t over or underbuy.

You can stack up additional cash rewards when shopping through cash back sites. You simply browse retailer cash back offers, click the one you want and make a purchase. You don’t need a rewards card to take advantage of these sites, but they’re an easy to way to multiply cash back earnings with your card.

Some of the most popular cash back sites include:

  • Ebates
  • Swagbucks
  • TopCashback.com
  • BeFrugal.com
  • ShopAtHome.com
