Sell, Trade, or Donate Your Unwanted Gift Cards!

Receive a lame gift card this holiday season? Thankfully, you have options. Here’s a brief guide to getting rid of that unwanted card.

Sell Your Gift Card

ABC Gift Cards, GiftCards.com, and Plastic Jungle are just a few of the sites that will buy unwanted gift cards for a percentage of the card’s face value. Most sites offer between 75% - 85%, with certificates from popular retailers fetching the highest price. If you’d rather not visit each site individually, check out GiftCardGranny.com to see what percentage major resellers will pay for your card. 

Though each site has slightly different operating procedures, most will provide a check or PayPal credit for gift cards. If you need money ASAP, GiftCards.com has a network of Certified Partners that will buy cards and hand out cash on the spot. You may also want to consider putting your card up for auction at sites like eBay.

Swap Your Gift Card

If you’d rather swap your unwanted gift card for a card you do want, check out GiftCardSwapping.com, MonsterGiftCard.com, or GiftCardRescue.com. Most websites charge a minimal transaction fee, but it’s typically a better deal than selling your card outright. Another option is Swap.com which allows users to swap a gift card for just about anything.

Donate Your Gift Card

Rather not deal with the hassle of selling or trading your card? Consider donating it. Sites like Good360.org and WorksOfLife.org accept gift card donations and all gifts are tax deductible.

Don’t get stuck with a lame gift card! Sell or swap your card to get the gift you really wanted or donate your card to those who didn’t receive a gift at all.
