Episode 253 – Organising gift cards

One of the things we regularly find when we’re decluttering homes is giftcards.
Sometimes it can feel like a lucky win if it’s a gift card you’d forgotten you had but if it’s expired it can leave you feeling like you've just wasted money and an opportunity.
In this podcast, we’re going to delve into gift cards; giving them, receiving them and organising them.

  1. I do not like getting gift cards. 99% of the time they get regifted. I feel like Ingrid, in that you end up having to go to that particular store and try to find something to buy. I can honestly say i don’t think i have ever had luck spending them. I just put them in my little Christmas box. And as the year goes by, i will go into that box to see if there is one that i can give for someone’s birthday. I do make sure to put a note on them as to who gave it to me so I don’t give it back to them. Heehee. Most of the gift cards here in the USA, most of our gift cards do not expire. I always ask when i buy them. And on ones i get i will call the 1-800 number on the back of the card and find out if they expire
    And how much is on them. And i write that information on a note on the card. I would much rather get cash. I will put that money in the bank or buy gas with it. Or i will put the cash in my Christmas box so that i have cash to buy birthday gifts throughout the year. Just my process. Great podcast

  2. In the US, law says anything under $10 you can ask for cash back. Some smaller stores are very confused on how to do this.
