We mentioned this one before, but worth mentioning again because it is very cool and has saved us money. The Raise app has two helpful functions. Number one, what to do with unwanted gift cards? The person meant well, but perhaps the gift card is not exactly something you could use. Most stores bank on the concept that many gift cards get lost, tossed aside, mismanaged, etc.; which is free money and advertising for them. Using the Raise platform you can sell unwanted gift cards.
Number two. On the other end of this equation there is someone that may want the gift card. Well, the Raise app has them for sale at a discount. Therefore you are automatically getting 1-25% off many cards from many popular stores. Added bonus, there is no card management, it is all managed on your phone.
Just another way we save small amounts of money that add up over time. We receive no incentive for talking about this, just another useful tool for one to use if they wish.
