It’s hard to believe but Christmas is only 21 days away. Twenty-one! That seems hardly enough time to get everything sorted out and prepared for the big day. I am usually prepared and ready for the whole season before the end of November but this year I’ve had a lot on my hands. It can be hard to juggle everyday life with the demands of the Holiday Season!
I have to admit that I was relieved to see gift cards on my siblings Christmas lists this year. While I love giving a well thought out gift, gift cards are just so easy and planned right the recipient can get something they will love. The only problem with giving gift cards is actually having to face the crowds and go store to store to pick them up. Thankfully I discovered CardSwap a couple years ago and will be buying all my gift-cards at Cardswap.ca again this year.Buying Gift Cards
Cardswap.ca allows you to buy and sell gift cards from a variety of popular retailers. When buying a gift card you pay only for the face value of the card itself, just like you would at the store, but you also earn “SwapPoints” on each purchase. SwapPoints can be accumulated and then be redeemed in exchange for more gift cards or cash back.
For example, you can purchase this particular Gift Card for $50.00. It has a $50 value and you pay no fees and get free shipping. On top of that you get 100 SwapPoints added to your account. Keep in mind that the number of points awarded varies from retailer to retailer and increase with the value of the gift card. To give you an idea of the value of SwapPoints, 1000 SwapPoints will get you a $10 gift card from CardSwap.
To purchase a gift card from CardSwap.ca simply login (or sign up) and then click Buy. You can then browse all the available cards or narrow it down by category to find just the right card. I found CardSwap has a really good selection of popular retailers like Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons, Winners, HBC, Amazon.ca and many more. Once you’ve found the perfect gift card just select and hit add to cart.
The entire process is quick and easy plus super quick shipping. If you need a gift card now, some retailers available on CardSwap offer e-codes that are available immediately after purchase.
Register for FREE on CardSwap.ca and receive 500 SwapPoints which translates to $5.00 in SwapPoints. 1000 gets you a free gift card for $10.00!
