How many gift cards did you get over the holidays? Better question though is, did you get the gift cards you want and can use? If not, there are quite a few sites that you can trade in your unwanted gift card for one you actually want to use. Read below for the best places to get cash or trade-in your unwanted gift card for one you will use.
Best Places to Get Cash or Trade-In Your Unwanted Gift Cards
At Cardpool.com, you can trade in your unwanted gift card or buy gift cards as well. For example, I put in that I have a $25 Target gift card that I want to trade in. A pop-up appears and will give you the option to chose an Amazon gift card for 6% more or get a check in the mail. If you do choose the Amazon gift card, you have the option to sell the card directly to Cardpool (for slightly less than the $25 gift card amount). You may also list the card in their marketplace and wait for it to be sold.
If you prefer to buy from Cardpool, as an example you can get a $25 Applebee’s gift card for $22.29 – basically 11% off. Shipping is free as well. And there are no expiration dates. Also, if you refer a friend, you get $5 too.
Cardcash.com works very similarly to Cardpool.com. At Cardcash, you will be able to get up to 92% of the face value of your unwanted gift card or you can trade it in for a gift card of your choice at a possibly better value than the gift card you are trading. Check them out.
If you are familiar with Ebates that I talked about before, you may know that Gift Card Zen is affiliated with Ebates. Gift Card Zen offers tons of gift cards to chose from and Ebates will hook you up with great coupon codes for double savings.
