If you had to grin and bear it over the holidays when you got a gift card to a place that you know you don't have any interest in, you just might have a happy out.

Thankfully, my family knows me well enough, and every gift card I received to local clothing stores and eateries, that I won't have to use this service. However, I know there were instances for some that wasn't the case.

If you got a gift card for Christmas to a place that you know you don't like, whether it's clothing, food, or other, you can sell those unwanted gift cards without having to meet up with a stranger from the internet.

Cardpool lets you sell your gift cards FOR CASH or you can even exchange it for another gift card to a place that you know you like. There's over 150 gift cards that they accept. Check out that list.

All you need to do is search your location, and yes, there are places in the Acadiana area that do this. Once you find a store or kiosk in your area, bring the gift card and a form of ID. All you need to do now is accept the offer for cash or a new gift card. When that is done, you walk out with said cash or a new gift card to a place that you know you love!
