Sell Gift Cards

Selling gift cards with Zapper

Here at Zapper, we offer a quick and reliable way to sell your gift cards for cash - no mess, no fuss. Gift cards can be a great solution when it comes to figuring out what you can give to a friend or relative for a special occasion. Unfortunately, these treats aren't always well-suited to the people that receive them. However, what do you do if you receive a gift card from a well-meaning relative, to a shop that you're not interested in, or don't use? Rather than waste the money on something you don’t really want, why not trade your gift card in for cash with Zapper, and get something you really want.

Invented in 1994, gift cards were first made popular by Blockbuster, who were the first to display the cards in their stores. Apparently, the idea was first thought up as a means of preventing the rampant counterfeiting that had been plaguing their paper gift certificates. The next big company to introduce gift cards was Starbucks in 2001, who were the first to make a card that could be used more than once. Now you’ll find gift cards everywhere, from games shops to high street fashion retailers.

How much are gift cards worth

To get a value for your gift card, scroll up to our search box above and select the retailer that the gift card belongs to, as well as it’s value. After that receive an instant valuation by selecting the add to trade button – simple. There are no hidden fees, and postage is completely FREE! Why not see how much money you could make today?

Whilst gift cards may show someone you’ve given a bit more thought into their present than just handing them a clump of cash, they sometimes miss the mark. I think we’ve all been in the situation where a gift card has sat in a wallet for so long that it’s gone out of date. Don’t let that happen to you! Sell gift cards to Zapper for a great price.
