The idea behind CardSwap.ca is both simple and brilliant; trade in gift cards you don’t want for ones you can use!
Personally I’ve yet to trade in any cards (though I suspect the temptation will be high after Christmas gifts have been received), but it looks simple enough. You make an account with the site, tell them the balance on your card, and trade it in for cash or points. You get a higher value by trading in for points, and the points are redeemable for more gift cards!
On the other side of things you can BUY gift cards and at the same time earn points towards more gift cards. So, for example, I bought myself $100 in Mark’s Work Wearhouse giftcards. I earned 500 bonus point for my first purchase and another 625 points (or 6.25% of the sale) for the $100 in giftcards. The number of points, or percent you earn back, varies based on the store and each point is worth a penny. After my $100 purchase I had 1125 points in my account, or $11.25 worth of points, which is enough to redeem for a $10 giftcard. Since my husband needed new clothes, it’s like getting $10 back on a purchase I was going to make anyways. Pretty sweet, eh? Plus I was floored by how quick I received my cards. I ordered late in the day on Tuesday and I received my cards in the mail on Friday. Oh and I should also mention, shipping is always free.
