Weâ€™ve all been in that familiar, uncomfortable situation of receiving a gift card from a store we have no interest or desire in visiting. Instead of simply â€œsittingâ€ on the card and watching it collect dust, PlasticJungle.com pulls us from our peril.
PlasticJungle.com puts its business plan right out in the open to rave reviews: customers can buy, sell or exchange gift cards that likely donâ€™t run tit-for-tat with their tastes.
Founded in 2006, PlasticJungle.com features more than 400 retailers for those interested in buying a gift card. The benefits of buying from PlasticJungle.com are quite simple: the gift cards are sold for less.
For example, a $25 Target gift card may be sold for between 6-10% less than the actual amount. PlasticJungle.com typically buys gift cards for about 92% of what theyâ€™re worth and they turn around give the savings back to the buyers.
What do the sellers get out of the deal, you ask? Sellers seek out PlasticJungle.com for those gift cards they simply donâ€™t want and would gladly swap out for cash, even if itâ€™s a few dollars less than what the card is worth.
One major positive of PlasticJungle.com is that it doesnâ€™t turn away gift cards that have been partially used. If you canâ€™t use all $100 at Home Depot, no worries; PlasticJungle.com will pay you for the remainder with no questions asks.
Customer service is a big bonus at PlasticJungle.com, which doesnâ€™t charge any hidden fees and always offers free shipping for its gift cards. Those same gift cards that come directly from PlasticJungle.com never expire, either.
You know what they say about bad gifts: Itâ€™s the thought that counts. Those who get gift cards they donâ€™t like are probably thankful, at the very least, that someone thought of developing a web site like PlasticJungle.com.
