12/04/2018 18:12

Gift cards are everywhere. Statistics show that more than 93% of Americans have used or sent a gift card to someone else. Brands use gift cards to generate sales, increase revenue, build relationships, improve brand awareness, etc.

On the other hand, consumers love gift cards as they allow them to save big on their next purchase. Gift cards are reported to be the number one most requested present and as much as 60% of consumers prefer to receive a gift card from a loved one as a present.

Why?

Because it provides you with an instant discount on your purchase.

But not all gift cards are used. It has been reported that more than $1 billion worth of gift cards remain unspent each year. Statistics show that an average American has over $100 worth of unspent gift cards that he/she won’t use.

At any given time, there are people with unspent gift cards that they don’t want to use and there are others who are actively searching for gift cards. This means an unspent gift card that you have might be needed by someone else, and he will be willing to buy it from you.

You can literally sell gift cards. Here are 3 reasons why you should sell your gift cards before they expire.

 

1. Make money

Yes, every gift card that you have in your wallet can give you money.

You can sell it to someone else who needs it at a discounted price. For instance, if you have a $100 Amazon gift card, you can sell it for $80 to someone else and you can use $80 to shop at your favorite store.

In fact, you can convert any gift card to cash.

And that’s what makes them so amazing.

 

2. Buy what you love

Is there something that you have been dreaming of to buy for ages?

There must be something. I have always loved to purchase a gaming laptop to play all those games that I couldn’t on my current laptop.

You can buy your dream product even if you don’t have gift cards for that store. Sell all the gift cards that you have in your home and start collecting funds for your dream product.

You don’t need a gift card of the same store where you wish to shop. Any gift card will work.

 

3. Get rid of the unwanted gift cards

Selling unwanted gift cards helps you get rid of the clutter. Why keep stuff in your wallet and cupboards that you don’t intend to use?

Sell it and keep your place tidy.

In fact, you should get rid of unwanted gift cards as soon as you get them. There is no need to fill your home with unwanted stuff, right?

 

Final words

Every gift card counts. If you don’t need it, doesn’t mean that no one else needs it. You'll always find people who will be willing to pay you to buy your unwanted gift cards.

So start selling them today and have fun.
