If I went and dug through my wallet right now, I'm sure I'd find a handful of gift cards that have been in there for quite a few months. Pulling open our junk drawer in the kitchen would probably yield at least another dozen or so... and who knows how much money would be on them that we're continuing to waste?
It's not that we don't love receiving gift cards, because we do, it just seems like there are times that they end up not getting used as often as they should. Or, once in a while, they'll be for a store that we don't have in our area or one that we just don't go to enough to make the trip worth it.
Aside from being sure to just carry the cards everywhere we go in hopes that we'll remember that we have them, what other option is there? How can we sell or exchange them for something more useful?
