Did you get a lot of gift cards this past holiday? It is such a convenient way to gift someone so they can get what they really want. What happens if you get a gift card for a store you really do not want to buy from? Introducing Plastic Jungle.
You can sell gift cards to Plastic Jungle. Take all those unwanted gift cards and find out the amazing offers at Plastic Jungle. They will pay you in cash by a check or by Paypal or you can request an Amazon.com gift card.
Here is how it works:
- Go to the Sell Gift Cards link on PlasticJungle.com
- Enter the merchant gift card and the balance of the card
- Click See Offers
They will make a cash offer or other alternative for a greater value.
- Select your offer
- Complete your transaction
- Mail the gift card(s) to Plastic Jungle with the provided prepaid shipping label.
Once the gift card(s) are received, Plastic Jungle will send you a check or issue the Amazon Gift Card ecode.
My transaction: I have quite a few gift cards. One in particular I know I won't use is Red Robin. They closed the restaurant close to my home and it is quite a drive to get to the nearest one. My Red Robin Gift Card is $25. The offer from Plastic Jungle is $19.25 cash or PayPal or a $20.21 gift card to Amazon. I will definitely use the Amazon card so I think that sounds pretty good. It is just slightly below the original $25 card value. That works out for me. I would rather have the $20 to use at Amazon than to sit on a gift card I will never use. The process was very easy. I entered my Red Robin card I wanted to sell, Plastic Jungle made an offer, I accepted the one I want. I chose the Amazon gift card of course. Plastic Jungle then created the prepaid shipping label to print out. I just have to put the card in an envelope, use the shipping label and mail it!
I am anxiously waiting for my Amazon Gift Card.
Looking to buy gift cards? Here is your chance to buy cards for the merchants you want at a discount price. The ones I have looked at are up to 30% off the price.
Browse the Buy Gift Cards link to see a list of the cards currently available. The deals go fast. If you see a card, or cards, you really want - ADD it to your cart. You can pay by PayPal or credit card. Your purchased gift card(s) will be delivered to your door.
