Buy And Sell Gift Cards At CardSwap

by Pam on November 29, 2010

If you want to sell a gift card you don’t plan to use, you can do so by listing it on a website called CardSwap.  You enter both the merchant name and the value of the gift card into the website.  CardSwap gets 6% of the sale price and the minimum they will receive is $4.50.

Once your gift card is sold you will receive an email with the shipping details.  Your job is to mail the card within 3 days of it being sold.  Then you will receive a cheque in the mail for the sale price less the 6% fee.

If you want to buy a gift card either for your own shopping needs or to give away as a gift, you can also buy a wide variety of different gift cards on CardSwap at various discounts.  For instance, you can buy a VIA Rail gift card valued at $300 for just $245.  According to the site, you can save up to 40% on gift cards, although the savings varies depending on what the seller is asking for their cards.

You can find a lot of different gift cards on the site including for restaurants such as The Keg and McDonald’s.  There are also a lot of gift cards for the clothing store Jacob and the photo shop Henry’s.  This would definitely be a great site for photography buffs.  They could buy these gift cards for themselves and use them when they go in to buy another lens or some other expensive photo equipment.

If for some reason you don’t receive the gift card you purchased, CardSwap will reimburse you as they provide a guarantee to their customers.  CardSwap looks like it’s a great way to save on your next shopping trip or meal out. It can also be a great way to make a little extra cash if you have received a gift card you know you’ll never use.  Rather than let it take up space in your wallet, you might as well sell it to someone who can use it.
