Cardavenue: Gift Card Exchange

I ran across Cardavenue while reading an article in Money magazine and loved the idea – a website where you can go and post gift cards that you have acquired that you don’t want or need, and try to trade them for other merchants that you might rather have instead.

I got a couple Buca di Beppo gift cards right before Buca closed, and have been stuck with them ever since. So I decided to throw them up on this site. The website lets you select your preferred merchants to help match people in trades. Then, you can use their Wishlist Search to find out who is looking for your cards.

Again, the concept is great. So far, though, I’ve been unable in finding someone to trade for my Buca cards. There may be an art to this somehow, because a couple of trades I’ve proposed have been turned down. Some people definitely appear to be “professional” card traders, and I have yet to figure out exactly how they’re making money off the deal.

Anyways… if you’re in a similar predicament, check out CardAvenue.com. Especially if you need a couple of Buca di Beppo gift cards. đŸ˜‰

  1. There’s a site that I use called monster gift card. The owners check the cards for their value and make sure they’re legit. selling cards through them costs about 5%, which is pretty good compared to a couple other sites I’ve seen.
