CouponTrade = Turn Your Gift Cards Into Holiday Spending Cash

*HOT*  $10 off of a $100 purchase!! For ONE DAY ONLY (Black Friday, November 23rd, 2012) You can get $10 off of your $100 order at CouponTrade when you use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout…this is a crazy good deal because it means that you are starting out with more money on the card than you spent! Great for gift giving AND also for stretching your shopping bucks further!!

Need some extra holiday spending cash?

I recently shared with you one of my new favorite sites, CouponTrade. They are an awesome resource for buying AND selling gift cards.   If you do any shopping at all (helloooooooo!) then you need to check this site out! They have a huge selection of gift cards for you to purchase at a discounted price and you can also SELL your unwanted gift cards.

To test all of this out, I recently sold a few gift cards of my own, one of which I mentioned to you last week, was a gift card that I had won in a raffle, for a restaurant that we don’t even have in my state, so I wasn’t too sad to see it go, but I was thrilled at the possibility of getting cash for it. My card sold within 8 hours! Upon learning that my card has sold for the price that I was asking (I sold a $35 gift card for $33)I was given the opportunity to select either a check or paypal payment OR I was also offered my payment in the form of an Amazon gift card. As you know, I’m all about Amazon…so I selected this option and after fees, was given an Amazon gift card in the amount $28.71 within 24 hours of selling my card.

The details on listing cards: You will be charged $1.75 for listing a physical card, and $0.99 for an electronic card and CouponTrade does take 10% of the sale of your card and that is separate than the listing fees, and I highly suggest choosing an Amazon gift card or check to avoid paypal fees…but overall a smokin’ deal if you would rather have money in your pocket than unused gift cards taking up space in the drawers.

I am going to SAVE my money and see what gift cards I can purchase at a discount. I spotted, but missed out on a Norstrom’s gift card (you have to watch for those, they go fasssst! I have also spotted several Disney Store gift cards, there was on last week that was a $100 Disney Store gift card and it sold for $75!! (would have been even less with my 5% off coupon code, see below!) That kind of saving is crazy because it puts you ahead of the money saving game literally before you even start!

This is so fun, and SO easy!! Clean out those junk drawers and wallets and head on over to CouponTrade to see what you can get for any gift cards that you are not using, and let me know how it goes!

*Buying a card? Right now, the folks at CouponTrade are offering SheSaved readers 5% off of your total order (one time only, and for new customers only) just use coupon code: SHESAVED5 at checkout. You can purchase multiple cards with this offer, but can only checkout once. This offers is good through December 31st, 2012 at midnight (est).

*Disclosure: I did receive compensation from CouponTrade to try out their gift card selling process. The gift cards were my own.  Stay tuned for more of my buying ad selling adventures at CouponTrade…I’m a bit hooked! These opinions are my own and were in no way influenced by another person.
