Best app to redeem your gift cards in Nigeria

Gift cards are digital assets created to serve as an alternative method of payment with a brand, website, gas station, restaurant, etc.

What happens is that when you’re at the designated brand’s checkout point, whether online or in a physical store, you enter your gift card details or hand the card to the cashier on duty and ask them to subtract the amount from your gift card balance.

The idea behind gift cards was to make shopping at brands much easier and more convenient. Creating a direct payment method that is practically equivalent to cash at the mark, apart from regular cash, debit or credit cards, is a good idea.

In case you don’t know about Gift Cards or have forgotten about them, I’ll name a few big names, to see if it jogs your memory.

The only downside to gift cards is the fact that they cannot be redeemed elsewhere. For example, you cannot use your $100 Nike Gift Card to make purchases on PlayStation. So what happens when you don’t necessarily need items from a particular brand? give yourself the cards, force yourself to buy from the brand, even if the purchase is pointless, or just leave yourself on a shelf somewhere. While giving is great, it should be genuine and not with things you need, waste is not an option, that’s where redeeming gift cards comes in.

Gift cards then started to have a different use. They are a great medium of exchange. Just like other digital assets such as cryptocurrencies, you can now accept gift cards as payment. This was all made possible through the exchange of gift cards.
