Misgifted Gift Cards Don’t Have to be Lemons
Buying a car and learning it is a “lemon” can be frustrating and often brings a sense of hopelessness. You fell in love with the car, thought you paid a fair price, and then all of a sudden chronic issues start happening. First it was the wind shield wipers, then a costly repair, and then the engine.
If you received a gift card you’ll never use, don’t feel like someone gave you a lemon. By selling your unwanted gift card to Plastic Jungle (for up to 92% of the face value) you get cash that can be can be used towards something you really want. Plastic Jungle allows you to think of the misgifted gift card as a ticket to endless possibilities.
You have a gift card for a store not even in your area…
My cousin Aaron lives in Texas and recently received a gift card for Darden Restaurants. (Think Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, etc.) Guess what? There are no restaurants that are part of the Darden chain near where he lives. Rather than hold on to a gift card he can’t even use, Aaron can sell the gift card to Plastic Jungle and get cash to use towards dinner at a more local restaurant.
If you used part of a gift card and still have a balance…
You receive a $100 gift card to one of your favorite stores, and after an hour shopping trip later, you end up with $35 unused on the card. You rack your brain weeks later and still can’t figure out something to buy. You can tuck the gift card away in a place that, hopefully, you’ll remember later. Or, you can get cash (which less likely to be misplaced or go unused) by selling your the remaining balance on your gift card to Plastic Jungle.
If you’re feeling generous…
Why not convert your unused gift card into something for someone else? Sell the unused gift card to Plastic Jungle and use what you earn to buy a gift card for someone else. I’ve had a couple of occasions where thoughtful friends gave me a gift card towards something they knew I wanted – like a rug for my living room. It made for a nice birthday gift and made the cost of the rug less of an expense for me.
Gift cards that you will not use can have a brighter ending with Plastic Jungle.
