Giftcard exchange

ndj123 530 22 April 1, 2016 at 11:52 AM
Hello,

What are the ways to exchange giftcards if the store doesn't allow paying for giftcard with giftcard?
In particular I want to get rid of staples, Newegg GCs.
I found CardCash, but don't know if its reliable?

Is there a safe way to exchange GCs directly with somebody say right on slickdeals?
If smbd is interested in exchange for ebay or amazon GC (even at slightly lower than 1 rate) feel free to PM me (post smth here as I check PM rare)
Thanks

Wrt Staples and Newegg, not sure if they allow for gift card payment of gift cards, but they do allow you to buy Ebay gift cards online. Worth trying to see if you can buy an Ebay gift card and pay with the merchant's gift card.

Hi, just a heads up that selling is not allowed on SD. trades are ok, as long as the value is no more that $5.00.

okay, so I might help you a little here
1st: staples gift card can't use toward gift card purchase for sure
BUT, you can cash out little by little if you
1: do the paper rebate, max 4-5 EACH TIME, get what you paid-tax
2:as always rebate but not paper rebate, usually anti virus rebate(may or may not pay tax)
there's no other ways to cash out except do a sell to cardcash(yes, it's safe, will explain more later)

2nd: for the newegg gift card, you can do the rest
1:try to use it toward eBay gift card(on newegg.com), used to work, but they block it weeks ago
2:newegg allow newegg gift card to buy newegg gift card(with extra $5 promotion newegg gift card)recently, not sure if it will allow next time, try yourself
3:great new is you can always check slickdeals to see if there are FAR(free after rebate) items, same way as cash out by doing rebate

here are little note if you have question:
1:card cash are safe site, used that a lot of time, usually it has higher sell price than cardpool(offered free shipping, but you have to pay shipping if you selling your cards to card cash)
2:if you selling it to cardpool(edit:or Cardcash)
---option 1:get extra 5%more by choose eBay gift card
---option 2: or get 5%more by choose amazon gift card
not sure if they still do amazon gift card, but either ways it's good
3:why eBay/amazon gift card is good?
if you buy a lot of stuff on amazon, checking slick deals all the time, you will notice that a lot of price mistake/no brainer deals happened on amazon, so you can use them this way
or eBay gift card, let's say if you turn all your cards to eBay, they allow eBay gift card to buy ANYTHING on eBay(included ANY GIFT CARD---EBAY GIFT CARD INCLUDED TOO, so we all know this is how rolling start)
4:what is rolling eBay gift card?
uh, well, if you do want to know/learn, please PM me, I would like to talk about deals/ intro deals to our new member)

I guess. Yet other forums I've been on have allowed full on buy/sell/trade lists and had a way to rate the experiences you had with those members. Not to mention I believe some of them had ways to get back what you may have lost due to untrustworthy members.

But different sites and different priorities on how they're run and all that.Frown

I've used both Card Cash and Cardpool with no problems. Most recently used Card Cash. They deposited money in my PayPal account within a few days of receipt of my cards.
