Gift cards are a popular gift during the holiday season, but many go unused.
However, if you received a gift card that you don't plan to use, you can still cash in. The trend of selling unwanted gift cards has become quite popular in recent years.
According to WalletHub, a website that tracks consumer trends, gift cards with the highest re-sale value include those for Target, Netflix, Walmart, and Amazon.
Those who want to sell their gift cards can simply go online and search for a gift card exchange. There are several reputable websites where people can get up to 95% of a card's value. Not too shabby for something you didn't pay for in the first place.
But alas, there are always caveats. If you're trying to sell a gift card that is for a more obscure or lesser-known retailer, expect to get a much smaller percentage of the cards full value. Some re-sale websites also take a commission, usually around 15 percent.
