What To Do With Unwanted Gift Cards in Nigeria 

Gift cards were created and designed to serve as alternative payment methods at specific websites, stores, or brands. What this does is that it makes the purchasing process at the brand much easier and simpler.

For example, with a $200 Nordstrom gift card, you can put cash or your debit/credit card away, because you have an approved means of exchange for their products. 

Over time, this culture began to grow in Nigeria. Certain brands like Shoprite, Spar, etc. have started offering their customers gift vouchers and cards. Which can be used to pay for items worth the value of such gift card.

The only downside about gift cards is that they can only be used at a designated store. You cannot redeem your $200 Amazon gift card at Walmart. So what then happens when you have a gift card that you do not necessarily need, especially here in Nigeria?

Just like your other unwanted assets, the best solution is to sell them and gain monetary value rather than allowing them to waste their years on your table or in your mailbox. 

Where Can I Sell My Giftcards in Nigeria?

There are tons of places to sell gift cards in the country. However, what you want to do is put yourself in a position to get the most value from your cards. The only way this can happen is by getting the best selling rates for your gift cards. There is also another aspect you should consider which is security. A lot of platforms promise you exuberant rates to get your cards and run away. You know what they say, if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
