I think sometimes we all face this issue when a website pays us in Gift card due to reason which is best known to the website or we were not aware of the rewards of a website and took Gift card as the preferred option.

I heard there are options like, websites where we can sell the Gift cards for cash and I think we can sell these by posting deals in marketplace on any forum as well.

What about you? Do you know how we can convert Gift cards to cash? Please share.

There are exchangers online that does this. you can check online and be sure of the exchanger before parting with your gift cards. I think the exchangers charge little fees for this .

I think its tough to find exchangers but there are websites where we can sell those Giftcards and get real cash in return. I remember about few legit websites dealing in that.

Honestly I really don't have much idea regarding on that matter since it was also one of the problem that I am facing whenever PayPal cash is not available. I always check if there are PayPal option in paying its members before joining a particular site.

Where can I find such exchanger? and what is its common name? I am planning to give it a try since I am very near to cash out to a certain site that offers a gift card as a mode of payment.

I don't know your location but in my location (Nigeria) we have a popular forum called Nairaland where most of the exchangers are found, they are mostly Nigerians. I advise you Google Search Gift Card exchanger in your country or the ones that can reward you via PayPal or any payment methods that is OK for you

I think it's easy these days and there are websites forums and even Facebook where we can sell in a exchange of real cash.
Do you how legitimate most of these websites are and do they pay in all local currencies or they pay in dollars , cos the ones in my country pay to our local banks, which makes me comfortable with them

If you are going to accept gift cards as rewards you need to be sure that the site pays in your own currency. I once made the mistake of choosing an Amazon gift card on the former site Chatabout but when I got it I noticed it was for Amazon.com, the US site and I can only redeem vouchers for Amazon.co.uk. They couldn't exchange it so I lost the voucher. I could probably have put it on Ebay and sold it but I didn't and I don't know what happened to it.

Most of those sites which give people gift cards as means of cashing out don't work in my country but its such a good thing to know that they can be exchanged for some cash.

Forum coin pays Amazon Gift card and those who have links in USA can take advantage of that but I think even we can sell those gift cards on different forums easily.

As you are on different websites, you can even sell that Giftcard to anyone and even on FB and I have seen many doing it successfully.

Good then if it can exchange readily that way but I think it will always come at a discount then why don't I rather get cash from the site.I believe gift card will be better spent buying items from the designated stores.

There are certain websites which accept members internationally but pays in Gift cards like Amazon and these Gift cards cannot be used easily in our countries so it's a good option to sell it.

I have not done this but I also hear that there are websites that specializes in buying and selling gift cards. By the way when I receive Amazon gift cards, I always use it on Amazon.

There are sites that buy Giftcards in my country home Nigeria, so it is not something to panic working on sites that reward in Giftcards as a Nigerian.
