Who doesn’t enjoy going to dinner and a movie or shopping at your favorite store using a gift card that your received for Christmas? I do! Sadly though there’s always a few un-used gift cards piling up in my wallet that I forget about and end up carrying around for upwards of 6 months!
Did you know:
- 1 in 2 consumers received a gift card this holiday season
- $6B gift cards are sold annually in Canada
- 1 in 5 gift cards go unredeemed
- Gift cards are used in the first 2-3 weeks. If not redeemed during this period the typically go unredeemed.
So what to do when you have a stack of gift cards that you know you won’t be using any time soon? Cardswap might just be the smartest thing yet when it comes to gift cards. They’ve created a safe and secure platform for you to sell your giftcards, receive up to 92% cash back OR you can SWAP your gift cards for others at full face value.
This means, say you got a $100 gift card for the Keg but you’d rather grab some new mascara and foundation at Sephora OR buy a few new dresses for a warm holiday down south coming up? Swap it out for swap points without losing any money, then buy yourself the gift card that you really wanted with your points!
I’m trying to decide which gift card I’d like to swap for….it’s a toss up between Sephora and Shopper’s Drug mart. Decisions, decisions!
