CardSwap for the Holidays {Giveaway}

cardswap

The holiday season is the perfect time to give and receive gift cards. It is likely you will receive a gift card this Christmas or you will be gifting one to a loved one or friend. But what if you have unused gifts cards you want to get rid of?

Enter Canadian website CardSwap.ca. CardSwap allows you sell unused gift cards from a large selection of retailers, restaurants and more for cash. You can also buy gift cards through them and every time you make a purchase or a sale on their site, you will earn SwapPoints to spend on new gift cards.

I have used their services in the past and I had a wonderful experience. The website is very user friendly and I received the gift card I purchased a few days later. The process was super easy and shipping was free.

When looking for a card, you can sort them by merchant name, availability and category. Once you find the card you are looking for you can click “add to card” and proceed with the checkout.  (Note: Each time that you buy a card you will be given an amount of SwapPoint rewards, the amount varies depending on the value of the gift card you are purchasing.)

If you want to sell your unused gift cards you can also do it via CardSwap.ca.  You are asked to simply enter your gift card details and you will then be provided with an offer up to 92% cash back. After that you mail the cards to them directly using their prepaid shipping label and receive a cheque via mail or account credit once your gift cards have been received.  Couldn’t be easier!

I love the idea of having a website where you can easily buy and sell gift cards within Canada. I know how hard it is to sell gift cards at a good value when you don’t have any use for them. I usually end up giving them away or losing a lot of money, not anymore. Because there is nothing worse than having a gift card expire before you can use it, a total waste of money!

I know I will be purchasing gift cards for the holidays through them to collect points and I will use their services to sell any gift cards I can’t use as well. Be sure to familiarize yourself with their site and remember to use their services when purchasing or selling unused gift cards this holiday season!

SUPER DEAL: Register on their site for FREE and receive 500 SwapPoints which translates to $5.00 in SwapPoints. 1000 gets you a free gift card for $10.00!! Register HERE

  39. Barb W — November 25, 2014 @ 5:33 am (#)

    The larger stores like Walmart and Target!

  40. Georgina — November 25, 2014 @ 5:42 am (#)

    I love gift cards and hoard them until I find the right time and purchase…hard to choose for sure. I like gift cards that have more than one purpose. EG: Zehrs you can purchase food but also house-hold items and clothing/ Winners again lots of selection plus you can use it at it’s family of stores. Some of the restaurant cards now can also be used at their family of stores, but in the end Shoppers Drug Mart is most likely the gift card I most desire. Again lots of selection plus a points system that rivals any.

  41. Stacie — November 25, 2014 @ 6:38 am (#)
