Have you ever gotten a gift card and thought to yourself, “This is something I’ll never use?” There are web sites that will buy your gift card and send you either cash or a gift card in return. One web site I have personally used to buy and sell gift cards is called Plastic Jungle. When I went to sell my gift card, I went to http://www.plasticjungle.com and clicked on the Sell Button. I typed in the gift card that I had and the amount and they made me an offer. I said I wanted cash. If I would have chosen an Amazon gift card would have gotten a slightly higher amount. They generated a pre-paid label for me and when they received my envelope, sent me a message and shortly thereafter I received a check from Plastic Jungle. It was quick and simple. On the converse, I have also wanted to purchase something and wanted to try to deepen my discount so I would look on Plastic Jungle for a gift card to a store I was planning on buying something from. They also have e-gift cards, but it does take several days the first time you buy an e-gift card in order for you to receive it. I learned this lesson when I saw something online I wanted to purchase and then didn’t receive the e-gift card immediately like I thought I would. I believe after the first e-gift card they do come quicker, but I have not yet tested this out.
I received an email today about some of the gift card they currently have discounted:

This is a great way to save some extra money especially on a high ticket item since the gift cards can be paired with sales, rewards cards, etc.
