Sounds too good to be true? Well, It’s not. That’s right, you can get gift cards to your favorite
retailers and restaurants for less than face value, and then give them as gifts or use them for yourself.
Did you ever get a gift that you were first excited to open and then had to keep a straight face
because you hated it? You then quickly stick it in a closet, never to be seen again. Forget the
picture frame. This holiday season, give people what they want: fun, freedom, and choice to
choose what makes them happy.
Gift cards are the most-purchased present, primarily because they let people choose
what they want and when they want to buy it. You simply choose the brand and let the recipient
buy the gift that they want for themselves. Gift cards that offer dinner, a play or a movie can be
a fun choice. A night out makes a better gift than a knickknack.
Also, buying discounted gift cards for yourself and your family is a great way to start piling up
Remember, most gift cards have no expiration dates or hidden fees, so recipients can enjoy
them on their own terms.
How It Works – Buying Discounted Gift Cards
The vast majority of people still don’t know about discounted gift cards. There are several gift
card web sites where customers can buy gift cards for their favorite stores for up to 30% off.
Imagine buying paying $70 for a $100 gift card – basically, it’s like getting $30 for free. You can
then use your gift card to purchase products on sale or use coupons for additional savings.
Using discounted gift cards this way could help you save hundreds of dollars each year.
Here’s how it works…Discounted gift card websites simply buy new or partially used gift cards
from consumers who would rather have the cash then resell the cards to consumers who want
them for discounts ranging from 2% to 30%, depending on the retailer. It’s a win-win for
everyone! The discounted gift card site makes a profit on the difference between what they buy
and sell cards for, the seller gets cash for a gift card they are not using and you get a gift card at
a discount to shop at your favorite retailer or go have dinner at your favorite restaurant.
