Yesterday I published “Gift card churning gone wrong” in which I whined about a couple of misadventures I’ve had recently in buying and selling gift cards. Well, my friend Natasha at TopCashBack just emailed me with some brighter news:
- TopCashBack has brought back GiftCards.com. Earn 4% cash back for buying or selling gift cards!
- TopCashBack has added GiftCertificates.com. Earn 6% cash back for buying gift cards! Unfortunately, GiftCertificates.com sells cards at face value (that is, they do not sell discounted cards) and they do not appear to sell high value cards such as Walmart, Target, or gas cards. But still, 6% back is a good start.
The bad news? PlasticJungle has stopped giving cash back via TopCashBack. You can still get 2% cash back from ShopAtHome when buying gift cards, but I don’t know if there are any good cash back options for selling gift cards to PlasticJungle.
