Got Gift Cards? Try Gift Card Exchange Day!
Did your cousin get you a gift card to Omaha Steaks right after you went vegan? FEAR NOT. You can sell it! For money! And stuff! Because December 26 is Gift Card Exchange Day 2011.
I didn't know this, either. Thank goodness for money blogs. Yvonne at Lip-sticking explains:
Rather than toss Aunt Edna's thoughtful present into a dresser drawer, a recipient can bring it out into the fresh air for Gift Card Exchange Day. Scheduled for Dec. 26, this one-day online event (developed by the creators of Gift Card Granny) will help consumers exchange their unwanted gift card for cash, or for an Amazon gift card. The date was selected because cardholders typically receive the best rates from resellers who want to encourage sales and restock depleted inventories.
