Can I do that? I received two $25 gift cards and would rather spend the money elsewhere. What is their policy?

Great idea...go up to random strangers and ask them to buy gift cards off of you.

A few questions. They ask for the card number and it's pin and than you have to mail the card in. And they ask for the sales receipt. Why do they need the card, they've got all the info they need to use it online? Sales receipt, I don't have one, it was a gift and I don't really want to tell the giver I'm selling their gift.

Is this company legit, it seems almost too good to be true?

I googled the company and found some user comments about them. It was about 50/50 liked/hated them.

i will give you $40 for your gift cards

I used them and was very happy. You print out a stamped envelope and they send you the money very quickly. I have another card, but it is higher value and don't like the offer they gave me.

You can sell it on e-bay for $45 for both. And you may get around $43 from e-bay.

Personally, I would eBay them.

I believe when they resell your card, they'll mail out the actual card so it can be used in store as well as online. If you can find someone planning to make an online purchase, then you might be able to arrange something privately where you don't have to mail the card if you'd prefer not to.

give them as a gift to someone else in the future instead of buying something.

speak to customers in the shop who are buying something and ask them if they'll give you cash for your cards

I buy from PlasticJungle all the time. They're good.

Use them to buy Kindle GCs. They're just rebadged Amazon GCs.

So are you saying that you can use a Kindle GC at Amazon for anything they sell (including non-Kindle items)?

you have proof that they can be spent on anything on Amazon? I'm inclined to call shenanigans unless its in writing somewhere... might just be me tho.

plastic jungle and card pool are both good and I have sold dozens to both however card pool pays in ~1 week when plastic jungle takes 2-3 weeks via check. They now pay via paypal so I don't know if still applicable. Abcgiftcards will beat pj or card pool by 1% but you have to pay postage so for your card prob not worth it.

I'd still be interested in knowing if I can really buy a kindle gift card at BB using a BB gift card?

If you're in California, split them into denominations of less than $10, and according to the CA state law you can cash them out!!
