CouponTrade: Discounted Gift Cards + 5% Off for Hip2Savers (Save on Dining Out, Apparel + More!)

10:27 AM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you enjoy eating out and/or you stop at Starbucks frequently or if you are just looking to save money on apparel, electronics, or other household items at some of your favorite stores, you may want to head over to CouponTrade to check out their large selection of reduced price gift cards! Plus, all gift cards ship FREE (or are delivered electronically at no cost) and there are many different denominations of gift cards available…check them all out here (you can sort by brand or category).

Even sweeter, if you’re new to CouponTrade, you can enter the promo code hip2save at checkout to instantly save 5% off your total purchase (valid through October 7th at 11:59PM EST). Note that this promo code is valid for new CouponTrade customers only and is limited to one use per customer.

Since I am a Starbucks addict, I felt it was in my best interest to snatch up a $50 Starbucks e-Card on sale for just $46. After the code hip2save, I snatched up this gift card for only $43.70 (that’s a savings of 13%!). Plus, the e-card was available to be used by the end of the day. Note that when you place your first CouponTrade order, you will receive a phone call from a CouponTrade representative who will ask you a set of questions to ensure a secure marketplace and to prevent fraud (you must complete this one-time new customer verification so that your order can be processed).

Note that there are no fees to buy these gift cards (they don’t charge sales tax, shipping costs or processing fees!). Physical gift cards will be mailed through USPS (and arrive between 3-14 days) and E-gift cards become available in your CouponTrade account within 1-2 business days.

If you’re planning to shop at these stores anyway, why not save a few bucks…and remember, you can combine store coupons and cash back sites with gift cards to SAVE even more! Love that! :D

Come back and let us know what card(s) you snatch up!

    I’m going to see what deal I can get on a Limited gc! I have the 25 off 50 coupon and this would pair really nicely!

  • brandon says:

    Thank you for this find! I am going to sell some of the cards I have had since last year!

  • Nancy Margo Vecuzzi says:

    What an awesome idea. Another one I wish I came up with. Really nice looking site and combining gift cards and coupons is a great way to save that I never explored. Im picking up some of these JCP Gift Cards @ 29% OFF!

  • Marissa says:

    I love this site, but It dosent give me any tips on how to price my card! What will a target card sell for?

  • Ashley says:

    how in the world do i sign up for an account. When you hit create and account it just brings up empty boxes??

  • mar says:

    I got a 200 starbucks card for only 171!

  • Liza says:

    The extra 5% worked for me! Here is another good deal I found while browsing. (wish I had $900 bucks to spend =/ ), maybe ill tell the hubs to put it towards an early Christmas gift =) Tiffany’s GC for 10% off + the coupon = $150 dollars off

  • Amanda M says:

    Is there a guarantee I won’t get ripped off? I am always scared of buying stuff like this but sounds awesome

    • Ashley57 says:

      I can’t speak for this site, but I have literally bought thousands of dollars in gift cards from various sites and never had a single problem (knock on wood). I buy almost everything with gift cards now.

  • Wendy says:

    Off topic. Did anyone use Plasticjungle for purchasing a GC recently? I have done several times. It was fine. But recently I could not use my paypal account to make a purchase. I’ve contacted their customer service via email (only option available) but their response was generic and did not solve the problem. Any suggestions?

  • Don says:

    Plastic Jungle and Cardpool are probably the worst gift card sites on the internet. Not only do they not have a customer service department, but they don’t protect their buyers nor care to help people on bad purchases / site usage. I would never recommend using any of them, just look at their reviews online. Plus if you try to sell a gift card they advertise 92% but only offer you between 50-60%. Last time I bought a Banana Republic card on that site, I purchased a $100 card only to find that there was $18 dollars on the card left. I tried calling, emailing and nothing. I had to just go ahead and dispute it with my credit card company.

    • Vicki says:

      So who do you recommend? I always get Plastic Jungle emails but haven’t purchased yet.

      • Ashley57 says:

        It seems as though this person had a bad experience, but I can tell you I have bought thousands of dollars in gift cards from both sites and never had a problem. As a matter of fact, I once bought a Macy’s e-gift card from Cardpool, but they had an inventory mistake and didn’t actually have it. As soon as they realized that, they apologized and sent me a $10 cardpool gift card for free. I just went and bought another Macy’s card at almost the same value, easy peasy. I think both sites are great. I also go through Shop at Home for around 1% cash back.

        • Diana says:

          I have bought thousands of dollars worth of cards from various sites in the last five years and have had at least two problems but they have always been fixed by customer service (like a Ruby Tuesday $50 card having a 0 balance).

  • mjc says:

    Nice idea, but it kept saying I had a card read error and I even tried 2 cards. Oh well…
