Ever wonder why gift cards are so popular? They’re easy for the gift-giver, but even more popular with the stores. Reason? Because retailers know that as many as 10 percent of gift cards will never be redeemed.
But what if you could sell those cards and get a good chunk of their value? Or buy other people’s cards at a discount? Nice deal. Typically, you’ll get cash, Amazon or PayPal credit in return. In general, the card must be worth at least $25.
Here are some popular sites:
