Plastic Jungle closes doors (Poll)

submitted on May 16, 2013 by YanBz in "Stores / Merchants"
Got an email from them, they are no longer going to sell/buy gift cards directly to consumers. Instead they will do it via their partners (BestBuy, CVS, United MileagePlus, FlexPerks and Zeevex). This essentially means that you can no longer exchange your cards with them for cash and will have to settle for some sort of rewards points, depending on the partner you use. Here is the list of partners:

I would not do that though unless rewards points is what you after. There is still plenty of places besides Plastic Jungle where you can exchange or sell your cards. This blog post from 2012 lists some of them:

    Plastic Jungle used to be the best. I think they were bought out a few years ago and customer service went down the drain. I use cardpool now and have had no problems.

    Sorry to hear it, for 6 years they were the best site to sell or exchange your unwanted gift cards.

    I've never used them, but I've also never received an unwanted gift card
