gift card exchange

You just received a gift from a beloved family, but oops…you open it to find a gift card you instantly know you’ll probably never use. Don’t worry, you won’t be stuck holding that could-be-cash any longer. Here’s how to exchange your gift cards for cash this holiday season.

There’s nothing more exciting than the promise of a little extra cash coming your way during the holiday season. Gifts are great, but when so many of us struggle with debt and those ever-impending bills, getting a little extra cash can be the difference between a truly joyous holiday season and an expensive one.

Of course, well-meaning family sometimes miss the memo. Everyone’s received a present from someone only to find a gift card for something you’ll likely never use. That new restaurant your aunt loves that serves nothing that fits with your diet; that clothing store your cousin works at the never has your size; that online store you just bought more from than you’ll need for another year—a gift card isn’t always the gift it’s meant to be.
