Gift Card Pennies to Charity

I had this problem where I received a Visa gift card, but once it got down to around $1.10 it was hard to find anyone to accept it, much less the ones for 30 cents.  So, my solution was to create a place to accept these nearly worthless cards and then I thought, “what if there are other people with the same problem and just want to get rid of them.”

So, I created this little button.  Now, it accepts all forms of major gift cards, like Discover, Visa, Master Card and so on, but I haven’t really had any luck with my Discover card ones.  As to my Visa ones, I did register my Visa Vanilla gift card before using the button below.  To register at the Vanilla site they just ask for your zip code.

Anyway, after selecting Master Card or Visa button below, you can change the quantities to make it match the remaining balance on your card.  Also after selecting the button below you will notice on the lower right side the option to pay as a guest with a Visa, Master Card, etc instead of using a paypal account.

Now for the Charity part.  We are talking pennies here and there are fees on my end, not yours, anyway 10% of all income received will be donated, once $10 in accrued to be donated, I will choose a charity that accepts paypal and make the donation.  Well, thanks for stopping by and hope this is useful for ya.
