How To Turn Your Wedding Gift Cards Into Cash

  |   By Jen O'Brien

Okay, don't get us wrong, we love a good gift card but after spending thousands of dollars on a wedding and completely depleting our bank accounts, nothing really compares to cold hard cash (after all, who wants to scrimp on her honeymoon?)

Now, you're going to want to keep this next piece of information hush-hush (lest you offend your wedding guests): We've actually found a way to cash in unwanted gift cards for up to 90 percent of the card value! It's called CardSwap, the Canadian site that allows you to buy, sell and donate unwanted gift cards online. All you need to do is enter the merchant name, card value and your email address into this page and you'll instantly be given an offer on your card. If you're interested in selling at that point, simply mail the card to CardSwap (using their prepaid shipping label) and within 48 hours of receiving it, the company will validate the card and send you a cheque.

You can also use the site to donate your gift cards to to charity or to buy other people's unwanted cards at up to 40 percent off the face value. It might be the best possible way to regift!
