Welcome to Heaven: Please Leave Your Gift Cards at the Door
For a long time, I considered gift cards to be evil! Well, not necessarily evil, but inappropriate and inconsiderate. “Here you go! I’m giving you this gift card because I have no clue about what you like, and I couldn’t be bothered with it. Happy Holidays!” Well, I used to think that, until I discovered a few good friends that helped me deal with the torture of having a drawer brimming with plastic. As a side note, The Wall Street Journal has published an article about the amount of money that has remained unspent or unclaimed through gift cards from 2005 to 2011 – about $41 billion!
If you are in my shoes, then do yourself a favor and check out the following websites. These will help you get rid of the unwanted plastic and will complement your cash income.
It is considered to be the best website for gift cards transactions due to the sheer amount of card selections they accept. In addition to this, the website has some nice features that help you keep track of the myriad in your drawer: ‘Cash-In Value Generator’ is a nice tool that determines the exact value of your card; you can donate the proceeds of your card to a charity of your choice; an email notification system that tracks the availability of your favorite retailers and more. Just be careful to keep a machete close at hand in case the plastic gets too much!
This website is a form of salvation, especially if you are planning to sell cards in bulk! It was featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal for a reason. I recommend this one to the newbies due to the support and assistance team – always prompt and always helpful!
If your friend’s muses are quite daft and they keep inspiring them to give you gift cards, then this website will serve you well. They have an awesome referral program through which you gain various benefits. Moreover, if you plan on selling the irksome tokens of affection, you can obtain cash for them or even Amazon credit. Be safe!
