I'm coming to the realization that I'm a cheap bitch. First the free shipping obsession, now the gift card at-a-discount obsession.
First off, DAMN you Pesky Apostrophe for leading me to these sites! Whew, now I feel better.
I clicked on a link for CardAvenue. Then SwapAGift. I found lots of folks that had gift cards they didn't want, that are willing to sell at a discount or trade their cards for other ones.
From a seller's perspective, no longer do you have to keep that $50 Wal-mart card that Granny thought you might like. You can trade it for a Best Buy card, or sell it to someone for $45.
From a buyer's perspective (mine!), you can get a $500 Target gift card for $450. That's like getting $50 for FREE!
There's a small $3.99 fee to list a card on the site. There's no fee to buy a card from the site.
I feel an obsession coming on....everyone stand back.
