Best websites for buying and selling gift cards

One of these sites offers gift cards at a 30% discount.

Giftcardrescue.com provides an instant quote for the resale value of unwanted gift cards. Enter the merchant, card value, and expiration date, then mail the card (shipping is free) and wait for your cash. The site accepts partially used cards with a minimum balance of $15, from stores ranging from Borders to Bass Pro Shops.

Plasticjungle.com lets you turn in unwanted gift cards, including those that are “partially used.” A minimum balance of $25 is required. Cards that have “broad appeal and high utility,” such as one from Target, will “sell closest” to face value.

Cardpool.com lets you resell unwanted gift cards worth at least $25—or buy ones for stores you prefer at 30 percent off. Acting as a middleman, the site connects visitors to one another to create a marketplace where they can trade gift cards securely.
