Today marks the last day of November. Are you beginning to feel the stress of the hustle and bustle that December tends to bring with it? If you’re like me, you probably haven’t even started your Christmas shopping yet. These days my Christmas shopping tends to be online, however this year I am just at a loss of what to get everyone on my list. I have a bunch of those people to shop for. The ones that seem to have everything.

Recently I was introduced to CardSwap. CardSwap is an online resource for Canadians to buy and sell gift cards. Have you ever received a gift card that you never had a use for? CardSwap can fix that for you. You can sell your gift card to CardSwap for up to 92% of the value of the card. You can then turn around and buy a gift card that peeks your interest. There are many fabulous gift cards to choose from and new ones posted each day! Every time you purchase or sell a gift card you earn SwapPoints. These SwapPoints can be redeemed when you have earned a minimum of 1,000 points. They have no cash value, but can be used towards the purchase of a gift card at your favorite merchant when you have accumulated enough points. Who doesn’t love a company that offers great incentive?! It’s what retains customers!

CardSwap offers a fast turnaround time once your order has been placed. I ordered my $50.00 gift card last Thursday and it arrived the following Monday. It took all of 3 business days to get the gift card in my hands. Impressive!

My only qualms about CardSwap was the way the card was delivered. It came in an envelope that resembled that of what your credit card statement would be delivered in. The gift cards were affixed to a piece of paper. Great if the gift card is for you, but not so great if you are planning to gift the cards to someone else. If you purchase gift cards through CardSwap that you are planning to use as a gift you will have to find your own packaging for them. Not that it is really a big deal! It definitely wouldn’t cause me not to use their service again in the future. In fact, I plan to place an order soon for a couple gift cards that will be used as Christmas gifts.

Would you like to win a $50.00 CardSwap gift card? Here’s your chance. Simply complete the Rafflecopter form below! (Giveaway is open to Canadian residents only!)

Disclosure: I received a $50.00 credit to CardSwap, so that I could complete my review of their service. All opinions expressed are those of my own.
