    I never heard about Card Cash. What an incredible service! I could have used this years ago for one of my clients that was always gifted Gift Cards. She never used them. It would have been great to have shared this service with her. I’m adding it to my resources. Thank you, Janet!

    I heard about Card Cash before, but I never used it. It’s a great service. I had a client that had found several gift cards when we were purging her bedroom. This service will help her so much. I will definitely be sharing this one with clients and friends/family.

      Yes. It’s a great resource for our clients.

    This site was a new one for me. Ten years ago, I wrote about sites like Gift Card Granny, Plastic Jungle, and Gift Card Rescue (which now seems to be a moneygram portal!). Card Cash has a really nice approach; it let me enter a few unused gift cards and showed me what I could receive in return without having to register for an account. I really appreciate having that preview, and it showed me getting back about 76% of the face value of the cards I have (and probably won’t ever use). Very cool!

      Great Julie. I’m glad you found it helpful. I love suggesting this to clients when we find old gift cards while sorting through things.

    What a fabulous idea, thanks for sharing, Janet. I’ve come across unused gift cards over the years that got shoved in a drawer and wondered what to do with them. Happy Holidays to you!
