Christmas is fast approaching and if you’re still trying to find that perfect gift for a friend or family member, there’s one place you need to check out! CardSwap is a company I’ve loved for a long time because it lets me buy gift cards to favourite stores and earn rewards when doing so. Even better, it’s also a great place to sell unwanted gift cards and earn some extra money!
The concept is simple. Everybody is sometimes given a gift card that they’re never going to use. By visiting CardSwap.ca, users can enter the retailer and the amount of the gift card to receive a cash offer for their card. The more popular the retailer is, the higher the offer. For example, a $50 Build-a-Bear Workshop gift card would be purchased for $27.50, but a $50 Toys’R’Us gift card would be purchased for $40. Top cards receive payouts of up to 92% of their value! Sellers can also choose between the quoted cash payment or a slightly higher value of SwapPoints, which can then be used to purchase other gift cards.
But with the holidays just around the corner, I’m thinking more about buying gift cards than selling them. Even those people on my list that are almost impossible to shop for generally appreciate a gift card to a favourite retailer. And when I can get them at CardSwap.ca and earn SwapPoints to redeem for free gift cards when I do, it just makes sense to start my shopping there! With a few golfers on my Christmas list, a Golf Town gift card is sure to be appreciated. And my purchase of a $100 gift card could earn me 600 SwapPoints! When I reach 1000 SwapPoints, I can redeem the points for a $10 gift card of my choice or take a cash payment paid via Paypal!
In addition to being an easy and rewarding way to shop for Christmas gifts, using CardSwap.ca also lets me shop from the comfort of my own home and avoid the crazy hustle and bustle of the stores. Now that’s win-win shopping as far as I’m concerned!
CardSwap wants to let you experience its convenient service for yourself, so the company has some very special offers just for you!

But that’s not all the fun that CardSwap has to offer either! The company is also offering a special deal for every new CardSwapper that registers for FREE on its site. Just sign up and you’ll receive 500 SwapPoints, a $5 value! Once you have 1000 SwapPoints, you can claim a free $10 gift card!
I’ve loved CardSwap ever since the site was launched and I’ve only become fonder of it as it’s grown and developed over the years. Now, with the holiday season here at last, it’s my go-to destination when shopping for friends and family. And when I’ve found all those perfect gift cards for loved ones, trading in my SwapPoints for a gift card to one of my favourite retailers is like a little present for me too! Check out the site for yourself and find a few great gift cards for the people on your holiday shopping list. By selling your unwanted gift cards at the same time, you may just be able to finish your holiday shopping without spending any money at all!
