Happy New Year! Well, well, well. That gift card from your aunt has been sitting on your dresser for days. It’s to that restaurant you loved when you visited her in South Carolina as a kid. Unfortunately, she didn’t know that:
a) There isn’t a Bojangles’ Fried Chicken & Biscuits within 500 miles, and…
b) You’re a vegan.
Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right? Well, you’re not stuck.
Don’t hang out front of the store like some slicky-boy (or person from THE FLORIDA PROJECT) asking customers if they want a discounted gift card.
There are sites that will give you cash for your gift cards, even partially used cards. These sites also sell gift cards at a discount. It’s a profit deal! As you know, that takes off all the pressure.
You will get less than face value, but at least you will get a little somethin’ somethin’.
You can also take your gift card to a “Gift Card Exchange”. They have a kiosk at my grocery store. See if there is one near you. You’ll get an offer on the spot and if you accept it – cash!
Another option: Exchange your card for a CVS gift card. More about that here.
