Another day of helping my friend, Karen, sort through and purge her stuff (and lots of chatting and catching up, too!). We came across a few gift certificates that, sadly, had expired. This reminded me of a site that I learned about a couple of months ago – Plastic Jungle.
Plastic Jungle allows you to buy, sell, or even trade gift cards that are collecting dust in your desk. Have a Macy’s gift card that you know you’ll never use? Trade it for a Williams-Sonoma card and buy that pan that you have had your eye on for the last few months. You can even negotiate so that you can get a $50 Williams-Sonoma (or whatever) card for your $40 Macy’s card!
Don’t want to trade? No problem. Plastic Jungle allows you to sell your gift cards for cold, hard, cash, or an Amazon gift card, or a donation to Donors Choose (a charity I will feature in the future).
You can buy gift cards at a discount at Plastic Jungle. They don’t have every retailer and the discount isn’t huge, but these days, a discount is a discount, right? We have a couple of cards that I’m looking to swap so I’m excited to test out Plastic Jungle!
Thanks for reading Bright-Yellow. Have a great weekend – hope it’s full of bright-yellow sunshine!
