Your Fund: Purchasing Discounted Gift Cards

I am addicted to Plastic Jungle. In the past week I paid $22.25 for a $25 Chili’s gift card and $23.50 for a $25 Publix gift card. That’s a savings of $4.25 without using any coupons! Plus you can use coupons with gift cards so I am going to be able to really make this money stretch.

Shipping is always free with Plastic Jungle. They also have a feature that will allow you to sign up for email alerts when they get in stock the gift card you’re waiting for. If you know that you are going to buy something from a specific store and are looking for an additional discount, this is a great place to start.

Selling your gift cards with Plastic Jungle is really fast, and extremely simple. It took me less than 5 minutes to sell a gift card that I am positive that I will not use.

So check it out! It is another great and legitimate source to use to save for your fund. Just add the difference between what you pay for the gift card and the value of the card to your fund!

    I wish I had seen this last week. I bought a $100 gift card from Williams-Sonoma as a bridal shower gift. I could’ve purchased it thru Plastic Jungle for $90. I’ll have to keep this sight in mind. Thanks for the post!

    I love Plastic Jungle. I took my husband (and his family) out for a special 50th birthday dinner at a fancy restaurant. I purchased the gift cards through Plastic Jungle to pay for the meal (which was almost $900) and I saved 12% on the cards. It was like almost getting the tip in there for free. Great site!

    I just checked and it shows a 2% rebate there. I’ve never used Plastic Jungle before but now, I’m definitely going to. Hopefully the shopathome rebate works!
