What is a Discount Gift Card?
We'll start by answering this question with another question. If a gift card is worth its full value, how can you buy it at a discount? Here's the process:
Let's say you receive a gas gift card for your birthday, but you don't have a car. It would seem your options are to either let the card collect dust in your desk drawer or spend the balance on sodas and Slim Jims at the local service station.
Not impressed? Luckily there's another option available. You can sell that gift card online for a percentage of its total value. The buyer you sold your card to then takes a small cut, reselling it at a slightly higher price than they paid.
And there you have it, the life of a discount gift card. You get cash for a card you were never going to use, the reseller makes their money, the buyer saves money, and everyone lives happily ever after.
How do I Buy a Gift Card?
Buying a gift card using Gift Card Granny is really simple. First, find the store you want a gift card for using the search tool or the alphabetical listing. Once you're at that merchant's page, browse around to find the best deal. There are a number of filtering options including seller, price and % discount that will narrow your choices.
When you find a gift card you want to buy, click the "Shop" button. You'll then be directed to one of our partners' secure sites where you can enter your payment information and complete the transaction.
How do I Sell a Gift Card?
Selling a gift card with Gift Card Granny is very similar to buying a gift card. When you visit our sell page, you'll see a table filled with stores, buyers and the percent of the card's value they'll pay you. It doesn't even matter if your card is partially used, someone out there will want it. After viewing the different prices, pick out the one that pays you the most.
Clicking the link of your selected sell percentage will then take you to the buyer's secure site. Here you'll need to enter the gift card information so they can verify the remaining balance. Once everything checks out, print out one of the pre-paid shipping labels and send your card in. As soon as they receive your unwanted gift card, they'll double-check the balance and cut you a cheque. Some buyers will even deposit the money directly using a service like PayPal to speed up the process.
