Saving Money - But Love to Shop?


Visitors: 173

Here is a great idea, for anyone who wants to stretch their spending dollars, and get a few extra things for FREE!

Check online for people who are trying to get rid of gift cards, gift certificates and store cards. You would be surprised how many people out there receive store cards for gifts, or as a bonus from work, who just don't want them, and would prefer the cash.

If you can match yourself up with someone who is getting rid of a card that just happens to be at a store you like, then you can save yourself some money, and in some cases a fair bit of money.

What people do, is they will try and sell the gift card for under the face value, since they would rather have the cash, to make it more attractive to a buyer. You can get cards for most stores now, especially the bigger ones that are in most cities, and for a good deal. If you watch carefully, you could get a $100.00 card for $80.00 in some cases, saving yourself $20.00 dollars, and in effect stretching your spending dollar at that store. If its not a super popular store, you could save even more as people try to unload their gift cards or gift certificates.

Depending on what you are looking to shop for, this can be a great saving tool, especially for a small business. I personally have done this many times, since I regularly purchase craft supplies, and hardware supplies. I have in effect lowered my expenses on most of my supplies.

Just make sure and check the credibility of the seller, either by feedback, or history. . and then you can go shopping and save some money. click on this site, for many of the most popular store cards, and save yourself some money shopping. Article and website by Diane Palmer
