Where to sell unused gift cards?
« on: October 04, 2016, 11:30:50 AM »
Hey does anyone know of a legitimate site that buys unused gift cards in return for either more favored gift cards or for like a visa check card or something?  I have about $300-400 dollars of gift cards from Pottery Barn and 7th Avenue(clothing store?) my wife got from a Citibank promotion, and we are looking to use the credit towards things like Amazon purchases or groceries.

I used Cardpool to sell a couple gift cards.  You get a percentage of the value (PB looks around 80%, but I didn't see anything for 7th Ave) in a check, but you can get a higher percentage if you choose Amazon gift cards.

I use cardpool to buy and have had really positive experiences on that end. I've done more than 10 transactions with them, never had an issue. They even called me to verify my identity when I moved to make sure none of my info had been stolen. So I can't speak to the selling end, but the company as a whole I highly recommend.

gift card sales sites protect the buyer much more than the seller so watch out.

I had good luck with abcgiftcards, which was recommended to me on these forums.

I've had only positive experiences with Raise.com, as both a buyer and seller.

I've had no problems selling unwanted gift cards on ebay, but pennyhoarder
recommends against it and endorses GiftCards.com instead:

I did some more research last night and decided to go with cardpool, as they have the highest reviews online, and are backed by the Better Business Bureau.  Oh, and the total gift card amounts were 100 pottery barn, and 250 for Saks on 5th avenue (either of which I don't ever shop at, so what the hell might as well offload them and put the money to good use elsewhere).  And yes, they offer a 6% increase for exchanging for Amazon gift cards.
