Wise Bread recently posted an article called “What can I do with the gift cards I don’t want?” Sounds like a flawed premise, right? Who wouldn’t want a gift card?
Not so, according to writer Holly Johnson.
“You might end up with a gift card to a store or restaurant you unquestionably dislike,” she says.
“Even worse, you might get an inexpensive gift card to a place where nothing is cheap — like a $10 gift card to a restaurant where entrees start at $19.”
She suggested half a dozen ways to deal. I’ll see her those six, and raise her another seven.
