Now that the holiday season is over, you’re probably trying your best to get back into the normal routine of life. You likely received a good number of gifts last year, but many of them may not have been your traditional boxed up presents. Surveys have shown that the giving of gift cards has jumped dramatically, and I’m sure many of you are staring at a pile of plastic on your desk. However, what do you do if you’re the recipient of a gift card to a retailer that you have no interest in? While the thoughtfulness of the giver is always appreciated, you’ve probably at least thought about trading the card in for something else that you would be more likely to use. With CardAvenue, you can buy, sell, and trade gift cards.

By scanning through this site, you’ll realize that you’re not the only one who has gift card envy. You’ll find a wide number of people who are looking to either swap their gift card for that of another retailer or receive cold hard cash for it in return. Some of you may think that this is a thoughtless thing to do to the giver, but actually, you’re working to make sure that their money is spent on something that you will really appreciate for a long time to come.
