$5 Off $25 Giftcard At Gyft When You Use Paypal, Small Money Maker

The Offer

  • Purchase a gift card of $25 or more at Gyft, use paypal to pay and receive a $5 discount when you use the promotional code “PAYPAL5”

gyft 5 off discount

The Fine Print

  • Offer excludes Gyft giftcards and Amazon gift cards (if you want an Amazon giftcard, choose a Game Stop giftcard. Game Stop sells Amazon Kindle giftcards which can be used for regular Amazon purchases)
  • You will not get any Gyft points on this purchase
  • All gift cards on Gyft at eGiftcards
  • Limit one per customer

Our Verdict

You can use a shopping portal to get an additional 2-2.5% cash back as well. If you’re not already a user you can get a $5 sign up bonus as well, this would bring down the cost of a $25 gift card to only $15 although this cannot be combined with this offer.

  • Topcashback: 2% cash back on all purchases
  • eBates: 2.5% cash back on some gift card purchases & 1% cash back at others

Your best bet would be to purchase a gift card to a shop you normally shop at, if you just want to resell for a slight profit you can do so as well. Just keep in mind these are eGiftcards, so your only real option is to resell to Target gift cards resell for 90.5% of their face value, here is the breakdown:

  • Purchase $25 gift card for $20 (-$20)
  • Shop through topcashback to get 2% cash back (+$0.4)
  • Use credit card that gets at least 2% cash back (+$0.4)
  • Resell gift card for 90.5% of face value ($22.625)

You’re not going to make a lot of profit ($3.425) but for those really struggling to meet minimum spends, or those just wanting a discount on places they shop already this might be a good option.

If you’re new to reselling gift cards, I’d recommend reading this post: The Complete Guide to Selling your Unwanted Gift Cards for Cash.

As far as I know, they only allow to use one promotion code for each order, this one can’t combine with sign-up offer.
