Uh, Gift Cards?

December 26th, 2006 at 06:03 am

Merry Christmas! So what did you get for Christmas?

Nowadays, I don't really expect gifts from my parents. Since I'm making enough money to buy myself presents, all I want is good home cook meal when I visit my parents twice a year. Humorously, this year, I got some gift cards as Christmas presents, and they're not even the stores I shop at! A $100 gift card is $100-equivalent, it'd be hard for me to just throw them away. Thank goodness there is eBay, I'm going to sell these useless gift cards and get some cash back!

Also, on MSN Money, there is an article about Trade In Those Unwanted Gift Cards for additional tips.

    Shoot, I don't remember the name of the website but there's a place online just for selling/buying/trading gift cards. You might be able to trade it for a store you actually shop at.

    Just be careful, because some people are stealing gift cards and using the acct. numbers on line and then selling the card to someone else.

    the article mentioned:
    - Cardavenue
    - Plastic Jungle
    - Swapagift.com
    - Gift Card Buy Back (They buy your gift card at 60% to 80% of its value)
    - Gift Cards Again (They sell you gift cards at 80% discount)

    does any of them sound familiar?

    it seems like when you sell gift cards, you're bound to lose some "face value". while using gift cards can give you instant 10% to 20% saving.
