Gift cards a great! They are a fantastic way to give/receive the gift people really want. No need to worry about the right size, color or style – a gift card fits everyone. Except… when it doesn’t.
Even the perfect gift can be imperfect… A gift card to the wrong store can be just as bad as a shirt that doesn’t fit. Bummer, what to do with that gift card that you know you will never use? Or even if you MIGHT use it, perhaps you could really use the cold-hard cash. That’s where Plastic Jungle comes in.
In a previous post, I explained how people with unwanted gift cards can sell them at Plastic Jungle and receive payment in the form of a check, PayPal deposit or Amazon gift certificate. In this post, I want to show you how savvy shoppers, like you, can purchase these gift cards at discounted prices.
Shopping for discounted gift cards at Plastic Jungle is easy. Available gift cards are offered at prices set by Plastic Jungle, so all the buyer has to do is search for the store or restaurant you want to buy a gift card for and if you like the savings, purchase. Payment is made via PayPal and gift card shipping is free, if you want quicker service you can even opt for an ecode if you are shopping online.
Yes, this can be a great way to purchase gifts, but it’s also a great way to save money on your own purchases. For example, gift cards for Cracker and Barrel sell for 9% under face value. That means you can pick up a $50 gift card for just $45.50 saving 9% on dinner with the family. Or how about movie tickets? You can score an AMC gift card for 16% off face value. That will certainly take a chunk out of the cost of date night! Believe it or not, you can even buy Toys R Us gift cards for 10% off face value, that’s like tax-free toy shopping! Wooza, you can even get a White House Black Market gift card for 25% off face value – shopping for mama!!
Want to make your savvy shopping even smarter? Combine your gift card savings with a coupon to really maximize your savings. Now that’s smart shopping!
I’m off to save 10% on a Boston Market gift card, which I will combo with the $4 off $20 coupon that was in the paper last week!
