UPDATE: Over now folks, will announce the winner in the a.m.!
What if you could get big SAVINGS and earn a little EXTRA CASH? Well, I just found out about this great online marketplace where you can do just that. CouponTrade gives consumers a place to sell their unused gift cards and buy discounted gift cards as well.
If you’re like me, then you probably have a stash of extra gift cards in a box just sitting there unused. Well, now you can sell those cards and use the money for something you do want or need instead.
If you planning to buy gift cards this holiday season for family and friends then I think you will be amazed at the huge assortment of cards CouponTrade has to choose from, including many discounted cards from Target, JC Penney, Kohls, Michael’s, Staples, Sports Authority, Starbucks, and many, many more! Here’s how it works…
BUYING GIFT CARDS: The whole idea here is to check CouponTrade first to see if they have the card you want at a discounted price. I bought a Kohl’s Gift Card for my sister who just loves shopping there. The whole process is quick and easy to follow thanks to CouponTrade’s well-designed website AND there’s no shipping charge! I was informed that my gift card will arrive in 3-14 days so I’ll have it in time for the holidays. The seller has up to 3 business days to ship your gift card. You can also choose from a wide assortment of ecards and get those even faster!
You can also get a 5% off on your total order (one time use, for new customers only) by using the coupon code TOTALLYTARGET at checkout. This offer ends at midnight on December 31st and cannot be combined with other discounts. If you are planning to give a lot of Gift Cards to family and friends, this is a great way to save money. Just be sure to order all your cards at once, enter the coupon code: TOTALLYTARGET and that’s it!
SELLING GIFT CARDS: As the seller, you get to choose the selling price and your card will be viewed by thousands of customers that visit CouponTrade on a daily basis. All CouponTrade members are verified by credit card and are approved by their Risk Department so you’re guaranteed a safe marketplace. You will receive your payment instantly by Check, Amazon Credits or Paypal funds when your gift card is sold.
Sellers are charged a flat commission and a small listing fee only when their gift card has sold. Plus, CouponTrade will take care of the shipping costs. There is a minimum balance of $20 required on the Gift Card you want to sell and partially used cards are accepted. I checked out a few of my favorite gift cards just to see what the competition was like and learned that the seller sets the price AND can adjust the price anytime before the card is sold. So, for example, if there are three $35 Gift Cards listed for Outback Steakhouse and the lowest one is selling for $33.50, then I can sell mine at $33 to try and edge out the competition!
Its easy to get started, just go HERE to register. Once sellers are verified, their listings can go live within 24 hours. CouponTrade has set up a very easy to follow format on their website with plenty of helpful resources on their website and their blog. So check it out and see what you can save when buying Gift Cards or get rid of the ones you won’t use for cash!

Here’s what many of you have spotted on clearance this week along with any coupon matchups I could find. Remember- clearance can vary greatly from store to store- there is no guarantee you will find the same or for the same discount. But I try & list specific varieties, prices & other details when I can, since not everything gets stickered and sometimes it’s worth a quick scan to check.
Keep sending us those emails and photos of your clearance finds and we will try to include them in our Thursday roundup whenever possible. Contributions are always appreciated!
HEALTH & BEAUTY: Many of you are still seeing lots of Dove Men+Care Body Wash, Shower Tool and Soap Bars on clearance for up to 50% off. I’m keeping watch at my store and hoping we will see bigger drops as mine are still sitting at 30. Emily found a Sonia Kashuk gift set for 30% off marked down to $17.48 and a Gillette Fusion Skin Gel Bonus Pack for 15% off.
