Use Those Gift Certificates

Shop on someone else’s dime. Don’t let those gift certificates go to waste before they expire. Some retailers take a percentage off the card for every month it hasn’t been used. If the gift certificate is from someplace you just don’t shop at, re-gift the card or sell it.

“Also, consider listing the card on Craigslist, Facebook, Plastic Jungle, Card Pool, Gift Card Rescue or Card Woo. Likely you’ll only be able to get a percentage of the card’s original value but it’s better than nothing since letting it sit in your junk drawers will do you no good at all,”  reports And Then We Saved.
