Let’s Swap Out That Gift Card You Got For Christmas

January 10, 2011

So Santa gave you a gift card at a store you have no interest in? Sell it via websites that will give you 50¢ to 80¢ for every dollar on the card (you can buy cards from these sites at a discount too). You might as well get something you can use if you swap it out, huh? Money tested several sites using $100 cards from Best Buy, Macy’s and Starbucks. Their favorites accept most large merchants’ cards and give you the option of exchanging your card for an Amazon.com gift card that’s worth slightly more than the cash you’d get back. Here are the two best sites according to Money. Note that it is best if your card has no expiration date…

  • PlasticJungle.com: Accepts cards from more than 400 merchants; you can view the amount you’d get back before committing. Cards must have a $25 minimum balance; those with expiration dates are not accepted. The site covers all shipping costs, and you can have the funds deposited into a PayPal account instead of getting a check.
  • GiftCardRescue.com: Works with more than 350 merchants; the expiration date on the card must be at least six months from when you mail it in.

I’m just amazed that these sites provide this service, and happy, as I did receive a gift card for the big & tall store around the corner (from Sister Jody no less) and since my weight loss I am able to move to the young & slender departments which the big & tall do not have. lol At GAI (www.gunwel.com) we have no expiration dates on any of the wonderful gift certificates you purchased from us for all of your tax needs this past holiday season. Give us a call at 212-979-6830 or stop by for a visit and let’s put those gift certificates to use. See you soon!
