What are discount gift cards?

Discount gift cards are born with people like you who sell gift cards that were once well-intended gifts but never ended up spent for one reason or another. When you buy discount gift cards, you save money. Think of "gift cards for less" as a new kind of coupon.

Why would I buy discount gift cards?

When you buy gift cards, you get gift cards for less than face value. You can buy gift cards and then give them away as gifts, and no one (except for you) will know that you saved money. Consider it a gift to yourself every time you give a gift card to someone else.

Does GiftCardPlace sells or buys gift cards?

GiftCardPlace is not a retailer and does not directly buy or sell any gift cards. We do, however, provide you with thousands of gift cards buy and sell offers all in one place. Once you find the best gift card for a particular occasion, we'll redirect you to the respective vendor's website in order to complete your purchase.

How do I check my gift card balance ?

On the back of your gift card, you will find a serial number and pin number that are unique to your card. You will also find a toll free number. Call the toll free number, and you will be asked to enter the serial number and pin to verify the current value on the card. If there is no number to call on your card, visit the card issuer’s website for assistance in checking the value on your card. You can also use our gift card balance check link.

Do these gift cards expire or have any fees?

Most merchant cards do not have an expiration date or fees. However, since every merchant is different, please refer to their specific terms and conditions found on each brand’s page prior to purchasing their card.
