Getting rid of gift cards you don't want is a losing proposition. You can re-gift the card, spend it on something you don't want or need, or sell the card through a site that will effectively charge you 20% to 40% of the card's value.

Now there is a much better option. An up-and-coming company called Friendgiftr allows you to swap your unwanted gift cards from one retailer to another. Friendgift works with 125 retailers, including Macys, Sephora, AMC, GAP, Starbucks, and Target. You can even divide up one card into multiple purchases at different retailers.
