Alison sent in this tip that might be useful for the gift cards you might have received for Christmas:
I just discovered recently that there are several websites where you can buy gift cards for a reduced price, anywhere from 3% to 35% off the face value (and the shipping is free). You can also sell your gift cards to these places (for quite a bit less than face value, I’m sure). I recently ordered from a CardCash.com, and since it was my first time, I only ordered one.
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these types of places. It seems like you could get some pretty good deals, but I’m sure there are some downsides, too.
Have you ever bought or sold gift cards at a discount? If so, what site did you use and what was your experience? Click here to comment
I sold a gift card on eBay once and as I recall, got basically full price for it (which I didn’t get, but it was sure nice!). I’ve never used any of the other sites, though.
Don’t miss out! Get deals like this via email:
