I know everyone has at least one old gift card laying around, that still has money on it, and has not expired. You may no longer live near that store chain, or there is not enough money on the card to get something you really want. So, it lays around, collecting dust, while the store pockets the money paid without having to cash in on it. I have a couple laying around the house for stores in other parts of the country that I’ll never get back to–Like HEB in Texas. I have one for Albertson’s, and just don’t see myself shopping there any time soon, even when I go back to Arizona. That Macy’s one I might use, but if I don’t I now know where I can sell gift cards that I’m never going to use.
Cardpool.com is a pretty neat idea–I know we have all received a gift card as a Christmas, birthday, or friendship gift that we are just never going to get around to using. Now at Cardpool.com, you can sell your unused gift cards and buy gift cards you want at up to a 35% discount. They guarantee your purchase and only buy and sell cards that have no fee and never expire. You buy directly from Cardpool.com, so you are not having to deal with an individual who may never send you the card. You can sell your gift cards for cash or Amazon.com Gift Cards. This just seems like a great deal to me.
