I have been doing a bit of gift card reselling lately in order to manufacture spending and meet minimum spend on some new cards from a recent credit card churn

Although my first forays into gift card reselling were a total disaster, I more recently have been taking advantage of a few deals on gift cards – trying to dip my toes back into the waters

Using TopCashBack to get a little extra when selling with Raise

TopCashBack had been offering $1.50 per gift card that you sold with Raise, which was a nice way to get a little bit of a bonus.  I would caution against including this cash back in your calculations as to whether a deal makes sense or not, but it was a nice way to get a little extra

This was true up to and including this morning, as I am in the process of liquidating several gift cards I’ve had over the past few days.

But as of about noon Eastern time, I see that the gift card sale cash back has been CHANGED


Now the cash back amount is up to $1.59, but it’s only for gift card balances between $20 and $49.99

Bummer, but at least now I can take advantage of Raise’s bulk import feature instead of having to manually enter my gift cards one by one!
