Recently I was given the chance to try out a new website called, Giift.com for keeping track of your gift cards & how much money is left on them. You can also trade gift cards with your friends, if you don't like the one you have. To test out the website, I was able to partner up with Giift.com to trade for any store GC I wanted to have and spend. As you can see in the below image, I had several awesome stores to choose from: Amazon.com, Sephora, The Body Shop, Starbucks, Target, Gap, Nordstom, etc... After much thought, I finally decided on Starbucks & Target. 'Cause you can never have too much money for either of those two places!
Now, these gift cards are best to be used & redeemed for online purchases, as you aren't given an hard copy with a barcode to print or anything: just codes for typing in when making online purchases [which will be sent to you via email]. If you have your Starbucks card registered on their website, you can access your card and reload them with more money online with the code that Giift.com gives you. Which is what I did, I loaded the money onto my Starbucks gold card [yeah, I have a gold card].
With the Target Gift Card I had to use it online on their website, since I don't have an iPhone or any kind of smart phone to download & load the gift card to the Target app to use in-store. Which kinda sucked, since I rarely shop at Target online, but it worked out in the end as I able to use the gift card towards the brown pair of sandals y'all have seen me wear.
