Gift Giving Made Easy with CardSwap {Giveaway}


Thinking about buying gift cards for your loved ones and friends this holiday season? Canadian website makes gift giving easy, especially for those hard to buy people on your shopping list.

I have asked a couple of my loved ones about their Christmas wishlist this year and so far I’ve heard nothing back, for them I am choosing gift cards! Getting a gift card means they can purchase whatever they need and want this holiday season, it’s a win-win.

I also like giving gift cards to teachers at the end of the school year, always a nice way to show appreciation for everything they do at our schools for our children.

This year when buying gift cards I’ll be using I have used their services a couple of times in the past and I had a wonderful experience. The website is very user friendly and I received my gift cards within a few days. The process was super easy and shipping is always 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. Each time that you buy a card you will be given an amount of SwapPoint rewards. For example, if you purchase $100 Pizza Pizza, $100 Loblaws, and $100 Mark’s Work Warehouse, you’ve already earned a 1000 SwapPoints! That’s $10! Or $50 Crate & Barrel, $100 O&B Restaurants, and $100 Petro-Canada Reloadable card. That’s another $10 in SwapPoints, and if you re-load that gas card, you’ll earn even more bonus points each time.

If you want to sell your unused gift cards you can also do it via  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.

I love the idea of having a website where you can easily buy and sell gift cards within Canada and I will be purchasing all of my gift cards for the holidays through them. Don’t forget to use their services as well when purchasing or selling unused gift cards this holiday season!

CardSwap is having a great promotion in the new year for people selling their unwanted gift cards. Be sure to follow them on Facebook and look out for that on their page!


Win it: Canadian readers, enter to win a $50 CardSwap credit!
