Tips For Holiday Gift Cards

It was estimated that each American would receive at least one gift card over the winter holiday season.  For many reasons though, millions of dollars each year go unspent on gift cards. Chances are, some received cards of no personal value and decided to stick them in a drawer somewhere. Others like me, may spend weeks debating on how to spend it and eventually forget about it. My advice, use your gift cards sooner rather than later unless they are for something like Starbucks where multiple gift card transactions are necessary to diminish the card’s balance. Here are some tips to help you with those gift card decisions:

1.) Remember Necessity Over Frivolous Spending = Win

For those of you with the $50 or $100 Walmart gift cards, this one is for you. Impulse might tell a lot of you to upgrade your life in the electronics department with every dollar you have. A good approach I try to take to this situation is the 80/20 rule. If you purchase necessities like toilet paper, soap, groceries, and other NEEDS. This will free up budget in the immediate future. With the other 20%, go ahead and treat yourself to a movie or something. It can be fun trying to meet that $20 cap at the end of shopping for something you WANT.

2.) Re-gifting Never Hurts

No I  don’t mean re-give the gift card. Have a loved one or friend with a birthday coming up? Instead of forcing a personal purchase, use the gift card to buy something for them instead. This saves you money you would have probably spent anyway.

3.) Trade OR Redeem For Cash

There are some great sites to exchange or sell gift cards like Gift Card Rescue offers consumers the chance to swap gift cards and even to earn up to $.92 back on every dollar.  This route might take a little research and work but it is surely worth it once you reap the benefits of the savings they provide. GCR accepts cards from over 350 vendors and offers trades for credit with merchants such as Amazon.

4.) Donate To Charity And Feel Good

If you really don’t happen to need a gift card, or are feeling extra generous, there are some options available for you to donate to charities. That gift card might not mean much to you, but to someone else it could mean everything. Works Of Life is a non profit Christian organization that combines smaller donated gift cards into larger cards to help needy individuals and families. GiftCardGiver distributes donated cards to non profit organizations which in turn, use the funds to help the less fortunate. GiftCardGiver also offers the option to throw a house party, meaning that you invite your friends over and collect their unused gift cards to make one bulk donation.



5 Ways to Save With Gift Cards

Regardless of how much money you make or what part of the country you live in, it’s almost impossible to say you have not felt the impact of the economic turmoil we’ve all been facing over the past 5 years. People are working desperately hard to keep their homes, get out of credit card debt and lead a balanced life. One of the biggest financial concerns for most Americans is the credit card debts they carry, it’s not going anywhere.

Many people are starting to look for ways to curb their spending and save more money without drastically impacting their lifestyle. Using discount gift cards is a great way to do this. Gift cards gained some additional respect in March, when the Federal Reserve passed new laws to protect consumer spending using them. With these new protections, gift cards can be a good option for those looking to stretch their budgets.

  1. Cash in coins and redeem in gift cards. Some coin redemption machines, like those at grocery stores or banks, let you exchange your coins for gift cards. Some even offer a bonus for choosing a gift card instead of a cash voucher. Once you get the gift card, make sure to stick to the value on the card when spending and keep your cash away.
  2. Stick to your budget. Gift Cards can be a way to dedicate spending categories, similar to the “envelope” method of budgeting. For example, buy gift cards in the amount on your weekly grocery budget. The money will be gone from your bank account, eliminating the temptation to spend it on something else and possibly rely on credit cards at the checkout. You will stick to your budget and avoid adding debt. Most stores allow shoppers to “reload” gift cards anyway.
  3. Reach a goal. Some people purchase gift cards for themselves to keep their spending focus on track. For instance, if you want to lose weight, you might purchase gift cards to restaurants where you can get healthy lunches instead of hitting the fast food place. Again, because you have already allocated your spending, you are most likely to stick with your plans.
  4. Redeem rewards points for gifts. If you find yourself in some debt, you might have some rewards ‘points’. Converting these points into gift cards to give someone or to spend on yourself can keep you from reaching into your bank account. Log into your credit card rewards website to find out if you can convert rewards into cash or gift cards. Some credit card companies will double the value of your rewards at specific retailers.
  5. Save for a cause. If you know you want to complete a home improvement project in two months, you can estimate how much you would need to save every week. But if it is difficult for you to stick to your goal, instead buy gift cards to the home improvement store in the amount of the weekly savings. Again, you will avoid spending your money elsewhere – and at the end of the allocated time, will have enough funds on gift cards to complete your project without debt.

Sell Gift Cards for credit

Sell Gift Cards for credit

The gift card industry in 2010 is seeing major growth with over $24.78 billion dollars being spent in gift cards this holiday season. The new CARD Act which passed in August of 2010, changed the expiration date of gift cards to be a minimum of 5 years after activation, making them a very popular option. A study conducted by the National Retail Federation indicates that over 77% of all shoppers will give at least one gift card this year.

If you receive a gift card that you have no use for, consider trading it for credit. Each Christmas, I receive a Home Depot gift card from my uncle that for some reason believes that I love home improvement. In the past I have given away different home improvement or restaurant gift cards that I didn’t want to friend and family members. However, now I can trade those unwanted gift cards for an e-gift card to

At, I can choose whatever I want because their product selection is endless. Even better is that the Amazon credit is stored in my account and never expires. I can save the credit until an irresistible deal comes along or I want to buy a gift for someone else. will offer you an additional 5% on top of whatever they normally pay for a gift card when you choose Amazon credit. So for that $100 Home Depot gift card that my uncle gives me each year, I will be trading it for credit.

It doesn't get any easier then that!

Sell gift cards on eBay?

Do you have gift card you don’t want? Are you considering selling them on eBay? Here are three reasons why you should sell your unwanted gift cards to instead of eBay.

  • Price Guarantee

When you sell your gift cards on eBay, you have no guarantee on how much you are going to get. Until the auction ends, you have no idea how much the final bid will be. When you sell gift cards to, we will give you a quote that offer tells you exactly how much we will pay for your gift card. Unlike Cardwoo or Ebay, the quote is guaranteed and we pay up to 90% cash back depending on the merchant. Don’t take a risk when selling your gift card for cash, choose Gift Card Rescue.

  • Purchase Guarantee

At, every time that you sell a gift card it is 100% guaranteed. If the gift card is on our merchant list and meets our terms and conditions (over $20 and does not expire within two years), we will buy it for cash or credit. When you sell your gift card on eBay, there is no guarantee it will sell or that you will get the money.

  • No Selling Limit

Ebay’s terms and conditions currently limit you to the ability to only list one gift card at a time. If you have multiple gift cards you may have to wait weeks to sell them. No only do we want to buy your gift cards, but we want all of them! If you have bulk gift cards, please contact one of our agents at 1-877-800-4413 and we will work out a deal for you.

  • Potential for Fraud is Eliminated

Selling your gift card on eBay means you will be dealing with a stranger you don’t know. There are plenty of opportunities for fraud and the most common example is this:

The buyer who is receiving the gift card declines that they have ever received the card. They report this transaction to Paypal and almost immediately get their money refunded. This leaves you without a gift card and at a total loss.

By selling your gift card to GiftCardRescue, you eliminate the opportunity for fraud. We are in our third year of business and you can trust a reputable company like ours that has been mentioned in major media outlets such as; the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, CNBC, Forbes, and NPR.

We are confident that once you do business with us, you will come back to us for all your gift card needs, including our extensive volume of discounted gift cards of up to 30% off.
