CardSwap $50 Gift Card Review and Giveaway

This year I have to admit I haven’t been as motivated as usual to run out and brave to malls for the perfect gifts for everyone.  I want everyone to love what I buy them but I am stuck for what to get.  Gift cards are becoming much more popular for gifts because they are sure to please any gift recipient.  CardSwap offers a place for buyers to go to purchase gift cards you want or to sell the gift cards you receive that just aren’t a good fit, all without leaving the comfort of your own home.  The best part is that it’s easy, secure and offers super quick delivery for last minute gifts and you will also have a chance to win $50 towards your choice of gift card on CardSwap.

CardSwap offers Canadians a fast, easy and totally secure way to redeem unwanted gift cards for cash, buy gift cards at discount prices, and even donate gift cards to a charitable cause. Canadians love giving and receiving gift cards. In fact, we spend around $6 billion on them each year. Gift cards are convenient, easy to send, and give recipients a chance to pick exactly what they want—in the perfect size and colour. But there is a downside. Sometimes people receive cards they just can’t use.

Sell. CardSwap is helping Canadians salvage those unused or partially used gift cards and turn them into
cash—up to 90 per cent of the card value.

Buy. Even better, CardSwap puts these recycled gift cards back into circulation, making them available for
consumers to buy on the website at savings of up to 40 per cent.

Donate. CardSwap is pleased to announce a wonderful new use for unwanted gift cards: donate them
directly to your favourite charity.


With full validation of all gift cards and a generous refund policy, we guarantee that our customers will be fairly treated and receive exactly what they paid for.


I found CardSwap very easy to use; I searched for the available card I wanted and found more than enough company gift cards to choose from, added to my cart and made my purchase.  In the process I earned points towards my next gift card purchase; each company has it’s own percentage rate for earning points, some more than others.  I admit I was a little worried about receiving the gift card in enough time before Christmas but was pleasantly surprised to find it in my mailbox within 3 days.

Once I finished my purchase I realized I could store all my gift cards in my iPhone passbook to purchase at gift card locations without having to carry my gift cards with me; not all locations participate so be sure to check before you head out shopping.  Upon receiving the gift card in the mail I read that I also received a voucher for more points towards my next gift card and for the rest of the month, you can earn even more points towards Gift Cards by sharing it on Facebook.  My experience with CardSwap was excellent, everything from selection to receiving and using my gift card was smooth; I would recommend using CardSwap for any gift purchases on your list this season.
