Save On Your Holiday Shopping With Plastic Jungle

At Plastic Jungle you can buy gift cards for hundreds of different merchants at a discount and I really love to use their discounted gift cards to save as much as possible on my holiday shopping.  You can save up to 35% off the face value of gift cards you buy from Plastic Jungle and you always get free shipping, no fees and no expiration dates. 

Buying gift cards from Plastic Jungle for holiday gifts is one way to save on your holiday budget, but you could also shop strategically with the gift cards to save even more!  For example, Best Buy always has lots of hot deals available for Black Friday shoppers, well you could save 5% more right off the top if you use a Best Buy gift card to pay for your bargains.  I’m a huge fan of J.C. Penney because they send me lots of great coupons and they have terrific sales, plus I can use a J.C. Penney gift card from Plastic Jungle to get an additional 16% off my purchases!

Another great way to save on your holiday shopping is to swap or sell any unused gift cards you might have to Plastic Jungle.  If you’ve received a gift card for a restaurant you don’t like, or if you have a partial balance left on a gift card, you can head over to Plastic Jungle and turn it in for up to 92% of its value and get paid with an Amazon gift card, through PayPal or you can opt to receive a check.  This is a hassle free way to make some holiday cash, and they even pay for the postage!

$50 Plastic Jungle Giveaway – Pick Your Gift Card!

Holiday banner - Buy discounted gift cards... is this really cool place where you can go to sell or exchange any unwanted gift cards that you might have, plus you can buy gift cards for your favorite stores or restaurants at up to 30% less than their face value.  Check out some of the deals you can get on gift cards:

  • Up to 25% off at 1-800-Flowers
  • Up to 20% off at Foot Locker
  • Up to 16% off at JC Penney
  • Up to 12% off at Kohl’s
  • Up to 16% off at Payless
  • Up to 10% off at TGI Friday’s

These are just a few of my favorites — there are tons more to choose from!  The best part about getting gift cards for cheaper from though is that you can also stack them with other offers to save even more, especially with Black Friday sales and holiday specials.  For example, you can get a Canon PowerShot camera from Target on Black Friday for only $129, that’s 44% off the retail price of $230 and you can save even more if you pay with Target gift cards purchased at a discount from!  Or say you want to pick up Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare at WalMart on Black Friday for only $10, down from $29.96.  That’s already an awesome discount of 67%, but who wouldn’t like another 4% dscount on top of that?
