Trading in unused gift cards

If the plastic that you were given for Christmas past is buried in your wallet or junk drawer, you’re leaving money on the table. Each year $2 billion in gift card balances goes unused, according to TowerGroup. Premium members only can trade in their unused gift cards for credit to their GCX balance. Instead of owning a piece of plastic that you’ll never use, you can use the funds from trade-in for a new gift card you will use or send funds to someone else as gift.

This is how it works:

A second way to earn credit as a Premium member is ordering qualified e-gift cards with your GCX balance. For example, if you order an Applebee's e-gift card for $50 - you may receive up to 10% ($5.00) in return credit to your balance. Qualified e-gift cards and percentages are subject to change daily.

And finally, a third way to save is the daily e-mail offer for Premium members to save on discounted gift cards. For example, you can purchase $100 Burger King gift card for $72.

Earn endless $5 credits!

Gift Card XPRESS (GCX) believes "word-of-mouth" is the best marketing tool and we want to reward your efforts ... forever. Our referral program is NOT a one-time deal. You can truly earn endless $5 credits from your referrals all year round.

Here is how it works:

1) Become a Premium Member
First become a Premium Member for $19.95 a year. You now qualify for all the benefits that come with paid Membership Options and can possibly earn $5 credit to your balance from each person referred to our service by you.

There are two ways to obtain referrals. If you send money to someone using our service as a gift and they are NEW to our service - they will be tagged as your referral by default when they accept your gift. If they pay for a Premium membership, you will receive a $5 credit. But it gets even better. If they renew their membership the following year, you get another $5 credit. Every time a referred member renews, you will get paid*.

2) Get referrals
The second way to get referrals is by encouraging someone new to sign up on our site and type in your e-mail address registered with our service.
The same rules apply.

* Premium membership status must be maintained in order to receive endless $5 credits. If someone pays for a $9.95 Basic membership instead, $1 will be credited. Free memberships will NOT earn credits, but a history of their referrals will be maintained in case they upgrade to a paid membership.
