1. Use a gift card app so that you never lose a gift card again.
We’ve all been there. We have lost our precious gift cards. Over time, that can add up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. A solution to this would be to use a gift card app that lets you electronically input the printed numbers on each gift card.
3. Get cash for your gift cards.
So what do you do with those gift cards that you aren’t going to use? Sell them for cash! Try this gift card reseller site where you can buy and sell your gift cards for cold hard cash.
4. Buy gift cards for a discounted rate.
Let’s say that you are doing a home improvement project at Home Depot which will cost you about $5000. If you’re a penny pincher like me, I love to save money wherever I can. By using this discount gift card site, I can buy $5000 worth of Home Depot gift cards for a discounted price. I
5. Use discounted gift cards with in-store promotions and coupons.
First buy the gift cards at a discounted rate. Let’s say you got a $50 Old Navy gift card for $45. That means if you spend $50 at Old Navy you are getting a 10% discount. When you get to the store, you will find that there is a 20% sale on those jeans that you’ve had your eye on.
6. Remember to use your gift cards with this simple trick.
We all have special credit cards for certain stores or rewards cards. Let’s say that you got an AMC gift card for your anniversary. Once you get it, be sure to put it in your wallet next to your AMC rewards card. That will serve as a reminder that once you pull out your AMC rewards card, you will remember to use your AMC Gift card. If you don’t have a big wallet billfold, it might make sense to keep your gift cards next to your credit cards or debit cards so they are always there to remind you.
7. Keep track of the balance on your gift card so you know how much is left and how much you have to spend.
I keep a Sharpie with me so that I can write down the balance remaining on my card. If you use the card multiple time, make sure you cross off the old amount and then write the new amount. You can also get a sleeve pal which is a paper sleeve that will hold your gift card. You can write the amount you have left on it.
8. Use an eGift card at a restaurant, even for the tip.
If you have a gift card wallet, chances are that you don’t have the physical gift card itself. When you get the paper receipt and want to pay for it, it doesn’t make sense for you to give the waitress your phone with the gift card wallet intact. She would need to access your phone and know your password. The best thing to do would be to write down the gift card number with the pin. She can input this information into the cash register and your gift card would be deducted.
9. If you have a small balance on your gift card, cash out at most retailers.
If you have a small balance left on a card, maybe $1.23 or $.50, most retailers will take that balance and give you cash. This solves the problem of you carrying a bunch of gift cards with barely any value.
10. The Costco Gift Card Hack
If you don’t have a Costco membership but know a friend or family member that does, give them money to buy you a Costco gift card and it will act as a “temporary” membership. To get into a warehouse, simply present the gift card to the greeter at the door. You can still use other methods of payment when checking out, but just make sure you have your handy Costco gift card with you just in case. Additionally, Costco gift cards never expire and you can recharge the balance, so it is basically a free Costco Membership powered by a gift card.
