Cash for gift cards
It’s bound to happen at some time or another. You get a gift card that you’ll absolutely never use in a million years. The giver had good intentions they just missed the mark. If this has happened to you, don’t waste that card. The research firm, TowerGroup, estimates that in 2009, over $5 billion gift cards went unused. That’s a lot of wasted money.
That doesn’t have to happen anymore. Now there are gift card sites that come to the rescue. PlasticJungle, GiftCardRescue, and GiftCards.com, will buy your unwanted gift cards.
While they won’t give you full face value of the card, they will pay you 60% to 90% of the value. An extra bonus at GiftCards.com is that you can use the money to pay other bills directly from their site. For instance, you can use the money from your unwanted gift cards to help pay your utility bill.
If you don’t happen to have any unwanted gift cards, you can still take advantage of these sites by buying discount gift cards at 30% less than their face value. This is a great way to save.
