How much do you have in Gift Cards and is it 100% exchange or are you trying to get rid of them, willing to sell at a discount?

Not sure why someone would go through the trouble to send you $50 in cash for a $50 gift card

I got asked 2 times at my work if I wanna sell my $50 gift card to them for $25. I was like wtf.

We got $50 walmart cards so it was sweet. I told them I can use this towards beer and I did.

I think the discount offered would be up to you. Just as I said before, not sure what the value to someone would be for an even exchange, is all.

In the event you feel you won't use it, and would rather have cash, then it's a good deal for you and the potential buyer. Since essentially, there is no real cash value, or 1/100th of a cent or whatever the heck it is.

Yeah i knew you would say no

So what happens if u buy 65 bucks worth of stuff and go return it, do they give you another giftcard or will they give you cash back, i think they give you cash back, or am i wrong?

best strategy would be give them as gifts yourself.

I believe they act as cash though and if you want to buy something and return it you'd probably get cash dollar for dollar

Not sure what there policy is

I don't want to give them away, i want to spend the money somewhere else...here is their return policy


Refund method
Refund will be in the same form as original purchase. Exceptions: Cash, debit or check purchases over $250 will be refunded in the form of a mail check within 10 business days of return.

Refunds
Refunds will be credited first to the original purchasing credit card account number (if any) and then any Gift Card. When returning items to a Best Buy store, the credit is applied at the time of the return and usually posts to the credit card within 72 hours. If you send an item back to us, please allow 14-21 days of processing time.

So ill get a gift card?

Yeah, you wouldn't get cash if paid via gift card.
Bestbuy hopes you loose the cards, or they expire, since its basically just giving them money for nothing.

Maybe someone will trade something...ok here is the deal, i need to get a new video card (don't need anything special or expensive) which is what i was going to use the money for, but since best buy is outrageously priced, i want to sell the cards and get a video card from newegg. Im been browsing their selection and i have found a few, maybe someone will buy me the card and have it shipped in exchange for the cards...so lets say the card with shipping is $50-$55..would that be worth it?
