About Plastic Jungle Gift Cards

At Plastic Jungle we buy your unused gift cards and then sell those gift cards at a discount to others. So, what does that mean?

Some of the denominations are unusual because we literally sell the gift cards we buy in our marketplace. If someone sells us a partially used gift card for $127.93, we buy that card, and then sell it to someone else at a discount. The card value remains $127.93, but our customers pay less than face value for it.

In addition, because we are buying gift cards in our marketplace, card designs may vary. But don't worry! The value of the card is good and guaranteed.

eCODEs

eCODEs are gift cards that are delivered electronically. No need to wait for snail mail to start saving! You will receive an email notification when your eCODE has been delivered to your Plastic Jungle account. When you receive the email notification, click on the link in the email, sign in to Plastic Jungle, and then retrieve and print your eCODE. All sales are final.

If you paid with your PayPal account, the email notification will be sent to the email address on your PayPal account. If you did not pay with PayPal, the email notification will be sent to the email address on your Plastic Jungle account.

You can redeem most eCODEs online and in-store. When an eCODE can be redeemed online only (per the retailer's policy) we indicate the eCODE is "online only."

Alerts

If you can't find the retailer or gift card you are looking for and the retailer is an approved Plastic Jungle retailer, you can set an Alert, and we will email you as soon as the card(s) you want become available.

You can choose to get your alerts Daily or Immediately. Our inventory is updated multiple times a day, so gift cards become available frequently and popular gift cards get purchased quickly when they become available. Setting an Immediate Alert means you might possibly get multiple emails in a day, but it also gives you the best chance of getting the card you want.

Shipping Information

Standard shipping is FREE at Plastic Jungle! If you want to get your gift card sooner, you can choose to pay for expedited shipping.

If you purchased an eCODE, it will be delivered as soon as your payment is processed - usually within a few hours.

If you purchased a physical card, it will be mailed to the US billing address you used for the purchase. We send your package through the US Postal Service, so shipping times vary depending upon your location. Here's an estimate of what you can expect:

Shipping Option Arrives within
FREE Standard shipping 5-7 business days
USPS Priority 3-5 business days
USPS Express 1-3 business days

Once you place your order, you can track it in Order Status.

At this time we do not accept any orders outside the United States, but we are constantly growing. We are keeping a list of country requests from our customers. Please email us at customersuccess@plasticjungle.com with the name of your country so we can include it on our list, and we will let you know as soon as we are in your area.

Identity Verification

Depending on the type of gift card you are buying, we may require you to verify your identity before the purchase can be completed. This means we ask you to enter a secret PIN code to ensure that you are buying the gift card and not someone else. Once you are verified in our system, you will not need to be verified again unless your Plastic Jungle account information changes.

If you must verify your identity, you will be notified when you buy your gift card(s). To verify your identity, we will call the phone number on your Plastic Jungle account and give you a PIN number. You can enter the PIN number directly on the order confirmation page or you can look up your order in Order Status, click the Verify Phone Number button next to your order, and then enter the PIN. If this verification is required, your order will be processed only after you have verified your identity. If you do not verify your identity within 48 hours, the order will be cancelled.

Returns

All sales are final. Of course, our Plastic Jungle Guarantee ensures that your gift card is a valid gift card, and that its actual value equals the value you purchased. If you have any problems with your order, please email us at customersuccess@plasticjungle.com.
