I found an old $50 Banana Republic gift card in my box of wrapping paper. Hmmm… there is nothing at Banana Republic for under $50 so I might as well sell it.
Sell it on eBay? Naw, the gift card market is too weird for me. PlasticJungle.com? Yes!
I will get $35 by check for my $50 card. That’s close enough to the right price and there is no hassle.
Here’s the fastest way to get cash for an unwanted gift card on PlasticJungle.com.
I would add step 0: Register on the site.
Selling your gift card is easy
- Find out what it’s worth
- Select your offer
- Enter your card information
- Print two copies of your receipt
- Send your card with the label provided
As soon as we receive the card,
- …get your cash by check OR
- …get your Amazon.com® Gift Card* by email OR
- …get your DonorsChoose.org Charity Gift Card
The best thing is that Plastic Jungle even provides the $.61 postage for mailing your card to them.
Yep, Plastic Jungle was a lot easier than eBay. I will check them out the next time I want to purchase a card.
