How would you like to sell your unwanted gift cards for cash or trade it for a card that you will use? There are a multitude of websites that offer trading.
Even Walmart offers a trade for buying power in their store. Walmart has a Card Cash gift card exchange program and accepts gift cards from over 200 other stores and restaurants.
You can exchange the cards for a Walmart gift card — obviously of lesser value — but Walmart offers up to 97 percent of the face value of the gift card being turned in.
There is also a website called Card Pool that offers trades with other users. Card Pool is a service that lets customers buy discounted gift cards for up to 35 percent off or sell gift cards for cash.
This is great news for people who would rather shop the friendly isles of their favorite big box store and it can be done online, too, so no long lines or large crowds to deal with. All orders and transactions include free shipping and are covered by their extensive purchase guarantee program.
