  • Use your card at an REI store—Using your card at any of the REI stores to pay for your goods is always a good option. If you have enough money on your card to cover the cost, you can avoid spending cash altogether, especially if you got your gift card for free or as a present
  • Give your card to someone as a present—You can skip the struggle of figuring out what present to get for someone by gifting them your card instead. The person receiving the gift card can decide how to use it, and you can avoid getting the wrong present
  • Sell your card—If you want to sell your card, you can search online for platforms specializing in such transactions. Take note that you will only get a percentage of your money back
  • Exchange your card for cash—In case you wish to use the money from your gift in a different way, you can exchange it for cash in one of the gift card kiosks if your state allows it
