As Sally Brown famously stated in 'It's Christmas, Charlie Brown' in regards to presents and gifts: "Make it easy on yourself. Just send money." Gift cards are just like money but not as free-ranging. In some cases, you can use that gift card instead of digging into your own funds for items/treats you want. But what if you can get that money when you want it, WITHOUT having to go through a specific company? Now the way is made clear! Casino Pawn and Gold is the premier Gift Card Buyer in Casa Grande that transform the gifts into cash!
You Can do That? Buy Gift Cards From Us?
Indeed we can! In fact, Gift Cards, by nature are meant as a means of debit; used toward a specific purchase or product. You're just simply shifting that funding over to us and we offer you cash in return. This maintains the spirit of bartering via a withdrawal of funds from the card. You're simply bringing the card to us instead of where it would normally go.
Do You Offer The Full Amount?
Sadly, we cannot as we don't know how much is on the card itself. For example, if we take a $50 gift card at face value, and later discover the card only had $0.05 on it, we basically were robbed. So as a precaution, we will first determine if there is value on the card. Once a determination of value is made, we'll provide our offer. This is when you, the customer, decide to accept or decline. It is also important to note that the PIN area must remain intact. A scratched off PIN eliminates any offers we can provide.
So What is the Process of Your Buying Gift Cards?
It's similar in ways to our standard buying practices with some key differences:
- Visit Casino Pawn and Gold, located at 241 West Cottonwood Lane, #101, in Casa Grande. Here's a map of our location:
- Make sure you have the gift cards you wish for us to buy as well as a current and valid State-Issued ID (such as a Driver's License). We want to make sure we give that money to the correct person.
- It is also important to note again, DO NOT SCRATCH THE PIN NUMBER PRIOR TO ARRIVING. There are rare case-by-case exceptions, however do not rely on them. Failure to follow this step completely derails the process and voids any transaction. This saddens us deeply as we want to give you money for your gift cards. Please remember this important step.
- After we assess the value stored in the card, we'll provide an offer to you.
- If accepted, we complete the transaction and present our offer to you in cash in a few moments.
What Gift Card Types Do You Take?
As a Gift Card Buyer in Casa Grande, we take most gift cards that are in the market today, but not all of them, unfortunately. This is due to some gift cards having very specific methods of use or they may or may not have a means of validating their PINs. Each gift card is essentially its own form of currency and thus, we cannot take all of them and treat them like a blanket policy. That being said, if you have concerns about your gift card(s), simply contact us or use our chat feature and we can help you out.
Are There Any Gift Cards You WON'T Take?
Less 'won't' and more 'can't' in that regard; but sadly, yes, there are certain cards we cannot take. Such cards are the major retailers of Wal-mart and Target. These two in particular (Wal-mart and Target) have proven the most difficult, so we must regretfully decline taking them. Also, the following cards are not accepted as well, as we cannot give you the full amount we are able to provide:
- Toys R Us
- Apple iTunes
We simply don't want to give you false hope in getting the money you need from these cards. We apologize for the inconvenience, but still encourage you visiting us with any other remaining gift cards.
