Online Gift Cards are Lower Cost, Same Balance

From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

"Head Online For Discounted Gift Cards.

That place is the web. Websites like PlasticJungle and Swapagift are great go-to sites when you're on a gift card kick. PlasticJungle offers cards from about 400 retailers with discounted balances. Swapagift has access to about 200 stores, and sells their discounted cards through Giftcards.com."


"The gift cards typically are sold to [PlasticJungle.com] by consumers who don't have any use for them and most cards are unused or partially used. Bruce Bower, Plastic Jungle's CEO, says the site pays on average 80% of a card's value and then sells it at a 10% discount."
