You can redeem your card for music, clips, ebooks or movies etc. So those who get these cards as gift can shop without spending absolutely any money. However, there are some who like to use their cards for their own benefit and those who are not a huge fan of iTunes Gift Cards, but still receive them from friends and family. For such people there does exist a solution – trade your cards for something that you really want. You can actually trade your iTunes Gift Cards for non-Apple items; however the major problem is that not many know where and how they can make the trade. There is always issues of becoming a victim of some online scam where either you find yourself card less without gaining anything in exchange or you end up giving out your credit card information to wrong people.
To help you out here are a few tips that can allow you to trade your iTunes Gift Cards for items that you need or cash.
Trade iTunes cards for other gift cards
There are many websites that offer you the platform to trade your unwanted iTunes Gift Cards for other gift cards. You can Google these websites and find the one that offers the cards you need. However, you must know that these websites are not easy to find and if you do find them they can very well turn out to be fake; therefore, you have to be absolutely sure about the website’s authenticity before you exchange any information with it.
These sites will take your cards in two ways;
- You can exchange your card for another card of same value
- You can sell your card and buy another one of the same value
These websites act as secondary sellers, so remember sometimes these websites don’t buy your card at full price; you might have to sell the card for a little less than its actual prices; for example a $100 iTunes Gift Card might be sold for $95; this allows the website to keep its own profit margin.
Find friends who need them
You can also trade your iTunes Gift Cards with your friends. If they have anything you need or are in possession of other gift cards then you can always trade your card for theirs.
You can also look for gift card forums where people are trading all types of gift cards. There is a great chance that you will come across someone who needs iTunes Gift Cards. You can either exchange your card for money or some other gift card or item that you need. However, be very careful when you exchange any information with other forum members. It is best to look for a member who lives in your area so you can meet at some common crowded place and make the trade; always avoid giving out your personal information to strangers.
