Cardcash Now Sells Brand-New Digital Gift Cards and Why That’s Awesome
Cardcash now sells brand new gift cards to dozens of merchants. This is different than Cardcash’s core business which is selling discounted second-hand gift cards.
Why would anyone be interested in buying full-price gift cards from Cardcash instead of buying direct? Because when paying with Paypal, Cardcash codes at 5x with INK for some odd reason.
There are currently over 75 brands of brand-new gift cards available, full list here. I imagine the brands that will interest the most people are Best Buy and Amazon. Other interesting brands: Southwest, Toys R Us, eBay, Hotels.com, Gamestop, Sears, Groupon, Staples.
- You can specify an exact card denomination
- Get large denomination cards
- Earn 5x with INK when paying with Paypal
- No issues with gift cards going bad
- No issues with depleted inventory
I tested it out with a $15 Amazon e-gift card ($15 is the minimum needed to check out on Cardcash), paid with Paypal, and got the digital gift card one minute later. Higher dollar amounts might get held up for verification. If they work it out so that everything comes instantly, that would be next-level awesome. It shows on INK as “PAYPAL *CARDCASH” like ordinary Cardcash purchases paid with Paypal.
Basically, this is a new UR version of MPX where you can specify exactly how much you want. Instead of earning the bonus United miles with MPX, you’ll earn the UR bonus with Cardcash. Note, MPX has much more available options. Also, MPX has instant delivery. (Seashells is another option like that for instant gift cards with a cash discount instead.)
- Gift card vendors who code at 5x: PPDG, eBay/PPDG, Gyft, Swych, Giftcardmart, Cardcash, Staples stores, staples.com, Office Depot/Max stores.
I wonder how Cardcash worked this out – is it a separate partnership with each retailer or is everyone going through one middle-man? (It doesn’t appear to be Cashstar.)
Lots of people have problems with second-hand gift cards, this should have no issues at all since they are brand new cards.
