As a new SAHM, I am always looking for new ways to save a buck here and there while still living the lifestyle that my family is accustomed to. I recently found out about a company called Plastic Jungle, and I am happy to share them with you all!
Plastic Jungle makes it easy to save money by buying discounted gift cards, or you can even make a quick buck by selling your unused gift cards! I really love this idea...I am a total shopaholic, and it's been a bit difficult to stay away from the mall this summer - with all of the traveling I have planned, I would really love to buy some new outfits! It's so much easier to justify my next shopping trip to Old Navy or Macys when I can buy a gift card at a discount and save money before I even arrive at the mall!
That weird gift card you received from a friend or family member that you know you will never use? Just sell it on Plastic Jungle and put some money in your pocket to spend somewhere that you really want to go!
Here's how it works:
Go to PlasticJungle.com and decide whether you are going to buy discounted gift cards or sell your own unused gift card.
If you are going to sell an unused gift card, simply enter your gift card info and Plastic Jungle will make you an offer and give you a pre-paid shipping label for you to use to mail them the gift card and you select your preferred payment method. Once Plastic Jungle verifies the amount on the gift card, you can be paid by cash (via check or PayPal) or an Amazon.com Gift Card.
If you want to buy a discounted gift card, simply go shopping in their Buy Gift Cards section of the website. You can buy gift cards with up to 35% off in savings! Also, how about FREE shipping!? What a great deal!
You can also buy e-gift cards through their eCODE section of the website. I think this is perfect for those online shopping marathons or to send as a last minute gift to out of town friends and family.
Here are just a few of the discounted gift cards I saw while browsing today:
Fandango up to 30% Off - this is perfect for our family because my daughter loves going to the movies with her friends!
Outback Steakhouse up to 10% Off - perfect for taking along on your family vacation to save a few dollars eating out!
Cold Stone Creamery up to 10% Off - great for rainy summer afternoons when there really isn't anything fun to do!
New gift cards are added to their available list on a regular basis, so I recommend that you Please also ask your readers to "like" us on Facebook at to get notified of special deep discounted gift cards.
Good luck and happy shopping!
