I have a $100 gift card to trader joes, we don't shop there so we are looking for someone who would like to trade $100 CASH for the card. Even trade. no more, no less! I will call in the balance of the card while you are standing there so you know im not trying to trade a dead/bogus card. Anyone interested feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org or for a faster response text me at 269-689-5677.
I don't understand... If I got a gift card for a grocery store, I really don't think I'd care too much to trade it in. It's a grocery store... If it was like a $100 gift card for a Harley Davidson store, I doubt I'd use it but it's a frickin' grocery store. Plus Trader Joe's has macaroons.
Yeah.. you'll never get full price for it. You are giving up the card because it isn't a convenient store for you to use. To make the cash available to you, you need to exchange the card for less than face value to give someone the reason to go to you for the trade. Basically you want someone to go out of the way to give you a cash equivalent, while they are accommodating your need for cash with nothing in return.
Im curious to know how you got the card since you dont shop there? Im hoping it was a Christmas present and not a hand me down from an organization or something...I only ask because I volunteer at the Fallbrook and Oceanside food pantries and the adopt a families this year got Trader Joes and Albertsons gift cards.
