FOX 4 Cost Cutters: Cash In On Gift Cards
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Don’t miss out just because Santa missed the mark when it comes to gift cards. If you have a gift card that you won’t, or can’t use, sell it online. There are many sites available. Cardcash.com and plasticjungle.com are just two.
Selling to a site: If you want to sell a gift card, some sites will buy the card from you and then resell it. Keep in mind you won’t get face value for the gift card, but you will get some cash out of it. Other sites will let prospective buyers bid on the cards. The sale price is the highest bid.
Buying from a site: This is a great way to buy gift cards at a discount for future gifts. You can also buy discounted gift cards from the sites for your own personal use. Stack with coupons or other discounts and sales to get even better deals!
