STOP! Don't throw away that gift card just because you don't shop at a particular store! Did you receive a Starbucks gift card, but prefer Dunkin' Donuts? Or perhaps you're planning a shopping trip to a particular store, but don't want to pay full price. With a little planning, a gift card exchange might just be the solution.
Here's how it works:
To buy a gift card - Select the card on the website (see below), pay a percentage of the face value (for instance: pay $72 for a $100 gift card), the card will be mailed to you or the code will be sent to you. You pay less than face value. Instant savings!
To sell a gift card - Enter the card information on the site, follow instructions for verification of value. Some sites require you to mail the card to them. You will be offered a percentage of the face value of the card, redeemable in the form of cashier's check, PayPal payment, Amazon.com gift code, etc. depending on the website.
What a great way to get guaranteed savings where you want to shop!
