How To Sell Gift Cards

Frequently Asked Questions

About Selling Gift Cards and Merchandise Credits

How do I sell my gift cards?

Click on our Sell My Gift Cards section to get started.  For physical cards, you will need to send them to us at your own risk and cost.  For electronic cards, you will not need to send anything to us.  We will mail you a check within 1 business day of receiving your gift cards.

Step 1: Verify the balance on the gift card or merchandise credit.

For most cards, you can verify the balance by turning the card over and following the instructions on the back.  Generally, merchants will provide a phone number to call or a website to visit.  Simply follow the instructions and provide the merchant with the gift card number and pin which can be found on the back of the card as well.

Step 2: Decide how quickly you would like to be paid.

Is it more important for you to have the cash now?  Or, is it more important for you to realize the maximum possible payout for your card?

 

Do you want your payment in cash immediately?  You can visit one of our storefronts and get paid immediately in cash.  However, the tradeoff is that this method has a lower payout than the payment by check methods.

 

Can you wait several days to weeks to receive your payment?  You can send in your gift cards or merchandise credits via mail or redeem online.  With these methods, you will be paid via check or money transfer.  These payment methods offer a higher payout than payment immediately in cash.

Step 3: Decide your selling method.

In-Store or In-Person:  Visit one of our locations to sell your gift card or merchandise credit immediately for cash.  This method is the quickest but yields the lowest payout.

 

In-Mail:  Visit our website to sell your gift card or merchandise credit by mail for payment via check.  This method takes the longest (at least 10 business days) but yields the highest payout.

 

Redeem Online:  Visit our website to sell your gift card or merchandise credit by sending the codes online for payment via check.  This method takes half as long as In-Mail (at least 5 business days) and yields a payout between In-Store and In-Mail.

How do I know I'll receive payment after sending you my gift cards?

We strive to deal with our customers with honesty and integrity and expect the same from our customers.  We are a Top Rated Seller on eBay.  Click here to see our latest feedback ratings.

What kind of shipping should I use to ship my gift cards and merchandise credits to you?

We recommend shipping your cards in a padded envelope with a tracking number as we cannot take responsibility for the cards until they are delivered and verified.

How long does it take to get paid?

Once we receive your gift cards, we usually process them and issue payment within one business day.  We mail the check via USPS First Class which typically takes 3-7 business days to reach your address.

Do you accept store and merchandise credits?

Yes.  Just treat the merchandise credit as a gift card when selling your cards.

Why am I required to enter my Credit Card Information for Redeem Online Transactions?

We require this information to ensure that our marketplace remains at a high standard of integrity and to reduce problems with fraud and retaining the balance on our gift cards.  If you prefer not to retain this information on file with us, please use the In-Mail redemption method.

When using the Online redemption method, you are required to enter and retain a valid credit or debit card on file with us.  Prior to the sale, we will verify that the card information and your identity is valid by authorizing (but not capturing or charging) a very small dollar value transaction on the card that you have provided.  If successful, this transaction will then be voided.

Some gift card sales transactions may require that we authorize – but not capture or finalize the sale – of a larger dollar value on this card.  If all goes well with the gift cards sale transaction, the authorization will expire after 7 days and your card will not be charged.   If the gift card sale transaction goes bad, we may capture or finalize the sale of this transaction to recoup any lost payout.

Your Warranty and Ownership Transfer

When you sell us a physical or electronic gift card or merchandise credit, you warrant that

  1. you have not obtained the gift card illegally
  2. the Gift Card is valid
  3. the Gift Card is redeemable for the amount of credit that you state
  4. that you have not in any way retained a way to redeem the Gift Card after selling the card
  5. the Gift Card and any interest therein is fully transferable to QuickcashMI
  6. you are the sole lawful owner of the Gift Card and all interests thereto
  7. the Gift Card is not subject to any liens, obligations, or encumbrances of a third party
  8. you shall comply with all other requirements to complete the Gift Card transaction, including, without limitation, shipping instructions, required by the Service.

Once you confirm a sale of a gift Card to us, you agree to transfer ownership of the Gift Card and any interest therein to us.  You agree that no portion of the Gift Card and any interest therein will be redeemed at any point subsequent to the transaction.  You further agree that you will be charged a replacement fee if the Gift Card proves to be invalid according to the terms of the transaction.  The replacement fee will be equal to the balance that you reported at the time of the transaction plus an additional $10 service fee.

When does ownership of the gift card transfer?

When you sell us a physical gift card, ownership of the gift card transfers when we receive the gift cards, verify the unused balance on the cards, and issue payment for the gift cards.  When you sell us an electronic gift card, ownership of the gift card transfers when we verify the balance on the cards and issue your payment.

What if something happens to the cards when they are being handled by USPS?

You are responsible for the cards until we take delivery of the cards at our location and check the balance.  We strongly recommend that you utilize tracking confirmation for your package.  If you have a very large balance of cards to be shipped, you might choose to utilize the USPS Registered Mail service at your expense.
