Friends Don’t Let Friends Clog Their Wallets with Unused Gift Cards
When is the last time you spotted an unused gift card?
You’re running an errand with a family member and as she goes to reach for her credit card out falls an unused gift card – the same unused gift card you’ve seen for the past 3 months. Do you tell her she can sell it to Plastic Jungle and get a check?
Your coworker got a power drill from his grandma for his birthday, but he doesn’t want it. He can return the drill to Lowe’s for a Lowe’s gift card, but he doesn’t know what he would buy with a $100 Lowe’s gift card. Will you tell him to sell the gift card to Plastic Jungle so he can get a cash deposit into his PayPal account?
You see a Facebook plea from a friend who is willing to sell a $100 Starbucks gift card she won but won’t use because she doesn’t drink coffee. (This happened to me last week!) Will you respond to her post with a note about Plastic Jungle and how she can receive up to 92% of the face value of the gift card as Amazon.com gift card if she sells the gift card?
Chances are we all know know of someone who has an unused gift card in their possession. The sad news is, if a gift card goes unused for more than a few months it is more likely to get misplaced.
As long as the gift card has a value of $25 or more, Plastic Jungle will let the seller choose which payout option he or she wants and Plastic Jungle will even pay for postage to mail in the gift card (if applicable). Once Plastic Jungle receives the gift card and verifies the value, either a cashier’s check, Amazon.com gift card via email, or PayPal credit will be processed.
Your friends will thank you for telling them about Plastic Jungle. You never know how they money might be put to use. They might have been tight on cash and needed to find money to pay a bill, buy groceries, or give a gift.
