We’ve never gotten a gift card we didn’t like. But there are some we would definitely reject. (A Bungee-Jumping gift certificate would be high on the list.) Here are a couple of websites where you can trade your cards for cash.
CardCash.com will buy back your gift cards or sell you new ones at a discount. They trade cards from more than 400 retailers. When you sell them your card, you get 92 percent of the card’s value, or you can trade it for a card from Amazon, CVS or United Airlines. If you buy a card, shipping is free. We saw a $100 Ann Taylor gift card for $76 for example, and a $300 card for $229.
A similar site is GiftCards.com. They have cards from hundreds of retailers and some are on sale for as much as 35 percent off the regular price. You can also sell them your cards, as long as there’s still money left on it for more than $20 and less than $300. Check out the GiftCards app for Android and iPhones.
