We all know how convenient it is to give gift cards as gifts and of course we also love getting one back (free shopping yeah!), but since Madame Deals’ goal is always making dollar$ out of change we got interested in checking out a site that will give us discounts when buying our favorite gift cards and at the same time let us sell those gift cards for stores or restaurants that we simply aren’t interested in. This site is Cardpool!
Cardpool makes buying and selling gift cards easy and fast for everyone, its premise is simple buy gift cards for up to 35% off or sell one for up to 92% cash back.
At first glance, I was impressed to see that this is one of the fastest growing gift card marketplace and has already been featured on CNN, NBC, The New York Times and more. Signing-up is very easy and the site is secure and has a simple layout and is very easy to navigate. Another plus is that they offer Free Shipping and 100-Day Purchase Guarantee, definitely thumbs up!
You can sell almost every kind of gift card on their site, you can get cash back via check or you can also trade it in for Facebook credits or our personal favorite an Amazon.com gift card.
Of course we all know why we’ll sell a gift card, but you may be asking why we want to buy. Here’s the deal, buying discounted gift cards can actually save you money! Not only are gift cards good for presents but you can also use it for personal shopping. At Cardpool, you can find gift cards discounted as much as 35% such as the 1-800-Flowers.com Gift Cards. If you use that discounted gift card for shopping, together with a coupon at the same time, imagine the savings that you’ll get!
It has been reported that about 8%-10% of gift cards go unredeemed, so imagine how much money retailers are raking in for these. A gift card exchange site like Cardpool will make sure that we’re not wasting any money and at the same time will let us save some.
