I always talk about how genius the idea of gift cards are and how they can help you plan your finances better. I could go on and on. However today, isn’t going to be about that. Instead, I’ll share the different places where you can buy gift cards. There are several places where you can buy gift cards at normal prices and even discounted prices.
Where to Buy Gift Cards At Normal And Discounted prices
1. Official Websites: If a particular retailer or business sells gift cards, chances are that they sell them on their websites. For instance, big retailers like Amazon, eBay, Nordstrom, Nike, Sephora… have websites you can purchase gift cards from. In addition to that, when you buy from these websites, you can choose to customize your card by adding pictures of your choice.
2. Convenience stores: A convenience store usually has a selection of gift cards from different retailers. If you need to purchase gift cards from various brands, you are guaranteed to get every kind of gift card you need at a convenience store.
3. Resellers: It is common for people to buy gift cards solely with the intention of reselling them. These gift cards may be slightly more expensive than buying them directly from the brands, but you can rely on them if you are urgently in need of a gift card.
4. An Auction Site: eBay is an example of an auction site where many people sell off things they do not want for a really cheap rate. You are guaranteed to find gift cards at ridiculously discounted prices. This is a great gift option if you do not have much money to spare but need to get something for your friend.
5. Convert Reward Points to Gift Cards: When you use American Express cards, you gain points. When your points have reached a certain level, you can then convert them to gift cards. They have a wide variety of gift card options to choose from. Ranging from fashion brands to restaurants to cinemas, and so much more. American airlines also offer this reward system.
There are several ways you can purchase a gift card, whether popular brands like Foot Locker, or less popular brands. Just be sure to never get scammed, and the best way to do that is to buy directly from the store or the store’s website. However if you cannot buy from the website or stores for whatever reason, the other options I mentioned above will definitely come in handy.
