Getting the Most from Redeeming Gift Cards
You might have some unredeemed gift cards with you from all those "get paid to" websites. Well there is a neat trick to redeeming gift cards. First thing to do is determine what product you want to redeem your gift card with.
Access the website where the product is being sold. For books, Amazon.com or BarnesandNobles.com is the more popular sites. Go to the Affiliate Program page of the site then sign up for the referral or associates program. When you are already an affiliate, purchase the product using the affiliate link from the merchant.
What actually happens is that the purchase you made will be credited to the affiliation you made with the merchant. Purchases made from such affiliate are given commissions or cash rebate. So in a way, you hit two birds with one stone! You don't shelve cash but get cash commission anyway from the purchase. The more gift cards you use to purchase products, the more commissions you get from the merchant.
This is one of the tips that prove to be valuable to those who are getting gift checks or gift cards as payment form.Â Non-cash payments by some sites actually would have a higher value that being paid in cold cash. Don't miss out on this opportunity to earn a bit more when you are redeeming gift cards.
I hope I was able to open your eyes to the possibility of really maximizing your gift checks or gift cards and that this article will help and encourage you to continue earning more points and more gift cards.
