How To Do the eBay Gift Card Exchange Effortlessly
Did someone give you an eBay gift card that you don’t want to use anymore? Check the remaining balance on it and exchange it for cash.
DoNotPay will explain how an eBay gift card exchange works and provide useful info on how to use the leftover balance on your card.
There are two types of eBay gift cards—physical and electronic. Here is what you should know about them:
- Both types of gift cards work like cash and are not reloadable
- Gift cards don’t have any expiration date
- There are no additional fees associated with using the card
- In case your gift card gets lost or stolen, you need to provide your purchase receipt and gift card number to get a replacement
According to eBay’s gift card terms and conditions, you cannot return the gift card for cash unless the gift card laws in your state require it. Here are other ways to exchange your gift cards for cash:
|Sell the card to someone you know||In case a family member or close friend is on the lookout for an eBay gift card, consider selling it to them|
|Put it up for sale online||Sell your card for sale at online marketplaces, such as Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. Alternatively, you can also put it up for sale on eBay|
|Buy items using the card and sell them||You have several options to do this, including:
eBay allows you to sell other gift cards for cash. If you have new or used gift cards that you don’t want, you can put them up for sale on eBay. Alternatively, you can also auction gift cards on eBay and get the highest price for your card.
To put your gift card up for sale or auction, you need to provide the following information:
- Company name
- Value in dollars
- Expiration month and year
- Valid locations
Since there is no verification process when putting up the gift card, there is a high chance of getting scammed. Reddit has numerous threads about people who have gotten fake or empty gift cards. Although you should contact customer service immediately if you’ve been scammed, there have been incidents where eBay did not provide refunds.
If you used your eBay gift card and have a small amount left on it, don’t let that money go to waste. Your first step should be to check the balance on your card. You can do this by choosing one of the following options:
