I first learned about CardSwap back in 2009 and shared it with readers on the blog. The company had a great idea – a central place where Canadians could buy and sell gift cards! You know, the one your aunt got you from a store you’d never shop at, or the one you got ages ago for a store 2 hours away from you. It was the perfect spot to sell those cards and for people to pick up gift cards at a discount. Though the discount would always vary, you’d still walk away with a deal.
Now, CardSwap has found a way to take a great program and make it better. Instead of a variance in prices and deals, they’ve streamlined everything. What you pay for the card is it’s face value. So, a $125 Old Navy card is going to cost you $125 at CardSwap.
So why shop at CardSwap and not the actual store? Because the store doesn’t reward you for your gift card purchase and CardSwap does!
So, for example, if I were to buy the $125 Old Navy Gift Card I’ve been eyeing at CardSwap, I’d get back 625 SwapPoints just for that purchase! I can then save them up and get myself a gift card as my own reward OR I can just cash out via PayPal. Very cool.
Of course, CardSwap operates by receiving cards from people who don’t want the ones they have so you can still sell your gift cards to CardSwap AND you get SwapPoints for selling cards too!
Bookmark CardSwap.ca and keep it in mind when shopping for gift cards this holiday season AND of course in January should you receive a gift card in your stocking this year that will make you wonder what the gifter was thinking!
