Have some gift cards lying around that you don’t plan to use? Sell them for cash or trade them so you can spend them how you’d like! With these legit websites below, you can receive up to 92% of their value in cash or gift card payouts to add a little extra padding to your shopping budget.

  • Payout value: Up to 92% of the value of your gift card depending on the retailer.
  • Payout options: Check by mail, ACH deposit, PayPal, other retailer gift card.
  • Retailers accepted: More than 1,100 brands.

While this site is not BBB accredited and they have some unsettled claims, they do have a B rating and plenty of positive reviews and an 8.44 rating on ResellerRatings.com.

  • Retailers accepted: More than 650 brands.

Sell with confidence on Gift Card Granny with their BBB accreditation and A rating!

Raise

  • Payout value: You set the value of your gift card!
  • Payout options: Check by mail (for $30 fee), ACH deposit, or PayPal.
  • Retailers accepted: More than 750 brands, though there are many brands with restrictions.

Likely one the most popular websites in this list (especially since we’ve raved about Raise in the past), this BBB accredited and A rated site is another great place to sell your unwanted gift cards. It’s a bit different from the other two websites mentioned as you have the freedom to set your own price for the sale.

At Raise, after you enter in the amount of your card & card information, you choose your selling price (though it will offer a suggested amount based on the card’s value) and the website will show how much you can earn from the sale after they take their cut of the selling fees. So while it may seem you could get more for your card on Raise, don’t forget to take into account the 15% commission cut.

    I have used ALL of these services. Only purchased from Raise but sold gift cards that I wasn’t using to the other 2 services listed. Had great experience with all of them.

    Please be careful of Raise. I sold them 2 Yard House gift cards and the account still says “pending” after almost 2 months. I’ve emailed them several times and no one will respond.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! So sorry to hear about that, Jen. Thanks for the feedback! Hoping they get back to you soon!
