Gift Cards are trending gifts these days especially in the festive season. So, if you have an abundance or few unused gift cards lying around in your house and you don’t know what to do with them, well here are some solutions:
Exchange The Gift Card
If the gift card you own is no use for you as it is constricted to certain items that are not required by you and there is something else you would like to buy, well not to worry as you can easily exchange your gift card with another gift card of your choice.
Return to the Issuing Retailer
Few retailers who issue gift cards also accept it back on a discounted rate. So, if you have bought a gift card that you ended up never gifting or have an extra gift card just go to the store where it came from and return it. Though the only problem with this is that many retailers do not allow returning of the gift cards.
Re-Gift the Card
Another option is to re-gift your gift card to your friend, colleague or a relative. Gift cards are always one of the best gift options. So, if you have someone’s birthday or any such event coming up and have a gift card spare, why not re-gift it?
Donate the Gift Card
One of the best and noble solutions for unused gift cards is to donate it to charity. This way you would make a day for someone who really needs and deserves a treat.
Sell to People You Know
A great option is to sell it to someone you know so they can use it. If you don’t want to sell it, you can exchange the gift card for another gift card that your friend or a person you know owns. Win-Win situation for both!
Sell the Gift Cards
There are many websites out there these days where you can sell your gift cards and get paid with cash. This is a good option as you get a solution for your gift card and also cash which can be used somewhere that is more beneficial.
Use It For Business
If your brain is wired to do business than one useful thing you can do with your extra gift card is to purchase something with your gift card at a discounted rate and then sell it (even if you sell it at regular price, you will gain profit as you bought it at a discounted price).
Auction the Gift Card
The way you can sell gift cards online, similarly, there are websites where you can auction your gift card and whoever bids the highest get the gift card and you get money in place of it.
There are few things to keep in mind before you choose any of these options to deal with your extra gift cards. The very first thing is to keep a check on the expiry date of the gift card because if the gift card is expired, it is of no use for anyone as after expiration, it cannot be redeemed. Also, if you are exchanging, selling or auctioning the gift card online, it is important to check that the website is authentic.
