Main Question or Discussion Point

There have been several other smaller companies doing this for a few years now. It looks like Walmart is getting into it big time. I checked and my $100 Home Depot card is worth $87 at Walmart. How can I resist a deal kike that?


Walmart is offering a very interesting gift card exchange starting 12/25. You can exchange gift cards from over 200 other merchants for a Walmart gift card.

Beginning December 25, you can go to walmart.cardcash.com/ and get an offer of up to 97% of the value of the card to exchange it for a Walmart e-gift card. For instance, you can get 95% of the face value of an Amazon gift card and 85% of a Gap gift card.

If you want to accept their offer, you will then enter the information from the other merchant's gift card. Once they verify the balance, you will receive a Walmart e-gift card via e-mail. The gift card can be used at Walmart.com, Samsclub.com, Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets (print it out and hand it to the cashier), and Sam’s Club (print it out and hand it to the cashier).

Weird, but I guess taking a loss might make sense if you either have no use for the other retailer's merchandise, or you save enough on something at Walmart to make up for the loss. I'm careful shopping at Walmart, a lot of their products cost more than at other stores, and I am talking everyday prices, not a sale, but they carry products I like that other stores don't carry. Oddly, Walmart carries more high quality and gourmet foods than even the high end overpriced store here.

Yep. For me, it's the Wright thick Smoked Bacon.

The "Zip-Lock" packaging is a plus.

Just hang out in Home Depot and sell it to someone buying a lot for $95. Let them come with you while an employee verifies the amount on the card or something. Don't just give Wal-Mart $13 so easily.
