It is humbling and nice to get gifts. It shows that someone or people out there care for you, and they took out their time and resources to get you something special, for whatever reason. Although this might not be the only reason people end up with unused and unwanted gift cards, it is the most common. You might have bought a couple and realized you can’t use them all, or you just made a wrong buy. It’s not the end of the world, we have all made some slightly wrong financial decisions here and there before.  

The hindrance with the gift card is the fact that it can only be redeemed at their designated brands. What this means is that you can only use Amazon gift cards to pay for items at Amazon alone and not at Walmart, and Google Play Gift Card can only be used on the Google Play Store, not at ShopRite. However, this does not necessarily mean you are at a dead end. Certain remedies can be done to make your unused gift cards useful to you again. 

I would be telling you two ways you can make use of your unwanted gift cards in Nigeria today.

2 Ways To Utilize Unwanted Gift Cards in Nigeria 

In as much as these digital assets simplify payments, it would be unrealistic to say there aren’t a few setbacks with these digital assets in the country. To be honest, not all big brand gift cards fully operate and can be redeemed in the country, if you happen to own any of those, you can simply; 

1. Re-Gift your Gift Cards 

One of the smartest ways to utilize your unwanted gift card is to give them out to loved ones on their special occasion. whether it’s a gift card that the brand does not fit your taste or one which does not operate in the country, it is almost impossible for you not to have a relative or friend that such an asset can be of use to them. 

This way, you save yourself from spending extra on their special days. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

2. Sell Your Gift Cards For Cash 

I know this point sparked your attention immediately. This is very possible and doable even in Nigeria. Selling your unused gift card for cash has to be the fastest way to rejuvenate whatever dead love you have with your digital asset. The mere thought of your card being a direct means of getting you cash is exciting. 

No, you do not have to post the gift card on your social media or tell everyone at work that you are looking to sell your gift card if that is what you are thinking. There is a much safer and time-conservative way to go about doing this, which is to sell your gift cards on Cardtonic. 

What is Cardtonic?

Cardtonic is a modern-day gift card exchange platform, focused on helping individuals in Nigeria get the right amount for all their gift cards safely, and on time. With this app you do not have to be tech-savvy to sell, as it is easy to operate, and neither do you have to worry about being ripped or slow payouts. 

How Can I Get the App?

Cardtonic is super easy to locate, the application is available on both IOS and Google Play Store. Once downloaded, you can register and begin trading within minutes.

Now, you do not have any reason to leave your gift cards on your kitchen shelf or on a cabinet somewhere, you are welcome.
