This post was sponsored by GiftCardRescue.com, and I was compensated with a gift card. All opinions are 100% my own.
I know some people think gift cards are lame gifts, but I loveeee them. I love receiving them, and I love giving them. Sure, it may not be homemade, and a ton of thought might not have been put into it, but I think it’s a great way to make sure the gift receiver buys something they want!
Even then, sometimes I end up with gift cards that I’m not sure if I have a use for them — mainly from promotions I sign up for. Or maybe you bought a gift card on a whim for some reason or another, and you didn’t want it. For instance, I bought an Olive Garden gift card for someone, and totally forgot to give it to them. At Gift Card Rescue, I would have been able sell my gift card for cash or an Amazon gift card, and gotten a good chunk of my money back.
Gift Card Rescue has a few other neat features — my favorite being — the ability to purchase discounted gift cards! They have a huge variety of gift cards for sale — from department stores, to restaurants, to Auto Zone. Some of them are discounted up to 20 percent off. So if you are planning to buy some gift cards this Christmas, definitely check out Gift Card Exchange. You never know what you’ll find.
Another feature is one that I stumbled upon yesterday. I was trying to find the balance of a gift card I was sent in the mail, that had no value on it. I typed the name of the store + check gift card balance, and the first link that showed up was from Gift Card Rescue! They have links to where you can check gift cards for certain stores.
