Although gift cards are a fantastic gift, they may well be for a store you don’t like, that is not near your location, or even that you need cash to purchase essentials from another store. We all know it would be rude to ask the gift giver for the cash instead!
So what can you do?
Sell them to a pawn shop!
At Fla-Pawn, we love to buy unused or partially used gift cards at any time of the year - and particularly when great sales events are going on.
Pawnshops are an excellent place to sell unused or used gift cards!
We also love end-of-the-year deals. During the holidays, people flock to our Florida pawn shop locations to find great deals on selling unwanted gift cards. If you have old cards lying around, we’d love to take them out of your hands before the holiday rush.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN SELLING GIFT CARDS
You might have heard that pawn shops purchase gift cards at a lower price in comparison to their actual value. This is true.
You might be thinking, "Why would I sell my gift card for half the price when I got it at full price?"
Pawn Shops are always thinking about the resale value of your card. They have to purchase it from you, sell it to someone else, and make sure they turn a profit and take into account sales tax
This means that if they sell your gift card at its current value, they wouldn't be making a profit and they wouldn’t want to take your gift card in the first place. Remember, pawn shops are still businesses!
HOW TO SELL YOUR USED OR UNUSED GIFT CARDS
Step 1: Inquire and find a pawn shop that buys them
Not all pawn shops are the same and some pawn shops might purchase your gift card, whilst others might not. So, call around and ask your local pawn shop if they purchase a gift card. It would also be helpful to mention from which shop or store your gift card is from.
Step 2: Sell your gift card while the shop is on sale
One way to sell your gift card like hotcakes? Sell it to a pawn shop while the store is on sale. Pawn shops are more interested in those because there is a higher demand for that particular gift card.
Step 3: Bring proof
Remember to bring proof of the value of the gift card to speed up the process. The more proof you bring, the better the offer will be on your card.
