It is humbling and pleasant to receive gifts. It shows that someone or people care about you and have taken their time and resources to give you something special, for whatever reason. While this may not be the only reason people end up with unused and unwanted gift cards, it is the most common. You may have bought a few and realized you can’t use them all, or you just made a bad buy. It’s not the end of the world, we’ve all made slightly wrong financial decisions here and there.
The hurdle with the gift card is the fact that it can only be redeemed in their designated brands. This means you can only use Amazon Gift Cards to pay for items at Amazon only and not at Walmart, and Google Play Gift Card can only be used on the Google Play Store, not on ShopRite. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in a bind. There are some remedies that can be taken to make your unused gift cards useful to you again.
Today I will tell you two ways to use your unwanted gift cards in Nigeria.
2 Ways To Use Unwanted Gift Cards In Nigeria
Inasmuch as these digital assets simplify payments, it would be unrealistic to say that there are not a few setbacks with these digital assets in the country. To be fair, not all major brand gift cards fully work and can be redeemed in the country. If you have one, you can simply;
1. Re-gift your gift cards
One of the smartest ways to use your unwanted gift card is to give it to loved ones on a special occasion. whether it is a gift card whose brand does not correspond to your tastes or which does not operate in the country, it is almost impossible for you not to have a relative or a friend to whom such an asset can be useful to him.
This way you save yourself extra expenses on their special days. Talk about killing two birds with one stone.
2. Sell your gift cards for cash
