CouponTrade: Buy Discounted Gift Cards & Sell Gift Cards for Cash (+ 5% Off for Hip2Savers)

The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Just a reminder that CouponTrade offers up a large selection of discounted gift cards for restaurants, retail stores and more (perfect to help you save even more at the register this holiday season as you can combine store coupons and cash back sites with these discounted 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 28th at 11:59PM EST). Note that this promo code is valid for new CouponTrade customers only and is limited to one use per customer.

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.


In addition to buying discounted gift cards, you can head over to CouponTrade to sell unused gift cards for cash! You can sell physical gift cards, E-gift cards and merchandise credit with a minimum of $20 on the card; the cards may be partially used and do not need to have an even balance.

Here’s what you need to do to get started:

* Gather up all your un-used and unwanted gift cards

* Head over here and click on the Start Selling button

* Enter the required info (Gift Card Retailer, Serial Number, PIN Number etc.). Keep in mind that all gift card serial numbers and pins are kept private at all times. You’ll also need to note the gift card balance and your selling price (depending on the brand, gift cards sell the fastest when discounted 3% to 30%). You can always choose to adjust the price if your card is not selling.

* For each gift card sale, CouponTrade does take a flat 10% commission of the gift card sale price. They also charge an extra $1.75 per physical gift card sale and $0.99 for each electronic (e-gift card) sale. You are only charged a fee when your gift card sells; if your gift card does not sell, you will not be charged.

* If you are selling a physical gift card, CouponTrade covers all shipping fees and provides prepaid shipping labels for letters and parcels (they just ask that you ship your gift card letters and parcels within 3 business days).

* You can select to be paid by Check Payments, Amazon E-gift cards or PayPal.

Special Note: CouponTrade verifies every seller and approves each sale on their site. You can verify your account through the seller verification tab on the My Account page or when you list your gift card. There is a $1 pre-authorization credit card charge for validating each account. All authorizations will be reimbursed between 24-72 hours

    Love this site! Sold a $50 Bed Bath & Beyond gc in a matter of minutes!

    • Kidsallgone says:

      How much did they pay you for it? I probably would’ve bought it from you :) :) :)

      • Colleen says:

        It was a $50 gc – we listed it for $45, and then after fees we made $38.75 on it. Not too bad, considering we now have the cash in pocket for it! It was a wedding gift, actually! My hubby and I are in some pretty tough times financially, so we’ve been selling anything and everything we can.

  • DJ says:

    Thanks for telling us about this site Collin! I just saved $60 on a Disney gift card for our upcoming trip! Yay!

  • Laura C says:

    I am interested in buying a CVS e-card. Does anyone know how this works? Do I just print out the card and have the cashier scan it each time I use it? Thanks!

    • Ketsy says:

      Yes I’ve used CVS ecards, if the cashier doesnt know tell her to punch in the numbers like a regular gift card. Make sure she gives it back to you if you have a balance left.

  • lynne ATL says:

    I just bought a Michael’s card for 24% off, yea. I don’t UNDERSTAND why anyone would buy any of the cards listed at 0% discount, what am I missing?

  • Rachel says:

    I have some facebook credit gift card that someone gave me. Even though it is a physical card I think the credits are all entered on-line (I think it has a $$ value). Think I could sell that? I don’t really do games on facebook so I’ve got no use for it.

  • Robbi says:

    I have a $25 Dunkin Donuts gc, $100 Macys gc and $50 in Citi Trends gc’s to get rid of if anyone is interested. If not I just might try out this site. : )

  • Lizzy says:

    How do they prevent scammers selling gift cards here? How do we know the value of the card is accurate? Thanks
