5 Websites to Buy and Sell Gift Cards

Have you ever gotten a gift card that you can’t use or don’t want it? Have you ever gotten a voucher for a website you’ve never considered buying something from? Well for each unwanted gift card, there is someone who does want it, and there are websites that will happily exchange those gift cards and even return your money. Of course, it is highly unlikely that you will get the full value of the gift card back, but it’s nice to have an option for your unwanted gift cards.

eBay serves as an auction place for unwanted gift cards. There is a huge chance you will stumble upon discounted gift cards being sold both as auctions and Buy It Now items. Usually, on eBay, you can find and sell iTunes gift cards, as well as Walmart, but eBay is mostly used for lesser known brands and stores.

The Buy It Now auctions are better for these smaller stores, and the success depends entirely out on the final price during the auctioning. It is crucial to understand that after the auctions end, you will still have to pay fees to both eBay and PayPal, so take that into consideration.
