CardSwap Can Help with Everyone on your Holiday Shopping List! {Giveaway}

Recently I attended a media event where Sandra Hanna, CEO of Smart Cookies spoke to a group of roughly 50 Canadian women on how to stick to their spending plan, save money and find that elusive hidden money in their budgets. I wasn’t surprised in the least when Sandra recommended we all check out and use Now Sandra really is one smart cookie, just ask Oprah, who’s had her on the Oprah Winfrey Show, so I consider myself in good company knowing I recommend the same!

What is

It’s simple really, Canadians who have gift cards they don’t want, sell them to and smart cookies looking to snag  a deal buy those gift cards at a discount and earn SwapPoints along the way! is Canada’s #1 gift card exchange, we have created Canada’s largest and fastest growing market place where you can  buy gift cards and earn rewards redeemable for gift cards, sell us your unused gift cards for up to 92% of the face value in cash or donate gift cards to charity.

I received enough SwapPoints to pick out a $50 gift card so I could try out the service. I was really happy with the selection of cards available, many from stores we regularly shop at anyway like Home Hardware, Pizza Pizza, Canadian Tire, Cineplex….. I decided to purchase a $50 gift card to Boston Pizza since it would make either an affordable date night or we could use it with the kids. By choosing this card I earned 350 SwapPoints toward another card or a deposit in paypal! swappoints

The whole process was easy peasy, the site was a breeze to navigate and my card arrived at my door a few days later! I was actually pretty surprised by how quickly it arrived! 

This Christmas you must check out before making your gift card purchases, it’s truly a win-win! Plus, if after the holidays you end up with gift cards you know you can’t use, drop by to sell them for cash or pick out some cards that you can use instead.
