5 Ways to Convert Gift Cards to Cash

first_img Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear Sometimes gift cards are the best gifts and other times not so much. Fear not, you can convert those gift cards into something you can actually use; cash or perhaps something as good as cash – an Amazon gift card. Here are options on how to convert your unwanted gift cards shared by Ben’s Bargains. Turn your Visa gift card into an Amazon gift card.Particularly useful when you have a few Visa / Mastercard / AMEX / Discover gift cards with a few bucks left on each, converting these will let you bank all the balances on your Amazon account.Log into your Amazon account, go to your account page and add your gift card as a payment option.Check your remaining balance on the card (either online or via phone), then go to an Amazon eGift card page. Set the remaining amount as the eGift card’s value and put your own email address in as the recipient.Go back to your Account page, click Gift Cards and apply the gift card code (received via email) to your balance.Sell your gift card on a third party gift card site.There are a number of these types of sites, CardPool, CardCash, Raise, etc… Ultimately, you are going to take a percentage hit when selling the card, but you will have something more valuable if you weren’t planning on using the card in the first place.Here are some examples with a $50 Best Buy card (as of 12/27/18):Cardpool: Offers a check for $44.25 or an Amazon gift card for $46.91. (You also have the option of selling the gift card on the marketplace for a slightly higher rate, but it will take longer).CardCash: Offers a check / direct deposit / Paypal for $43.50 or an Amazon gift card for $45.67.Raise: Offers payout via check / direct deposit / Paypal for $41.83. (This is paid out when the card sells on the site. It will sell faster based on your price, but your payout could drop.)Use a Gift Card Exchange ForumThe most popular one of these is probably the sub-Reddit, r/giftcardexchange/. You do have to educate yourself on rules of trading and make sure you are trading with a legit person. Donate your Gift CardsSome charities will allow you to donate gift cards, regardless of the size of the balance. You can claim it as a charitable contribution at tax time, assuming you itemize.  Check with your local charity to see if this is an option.Sell your gift card using Craigslist / Facebook GroupsWhile meeting in-person to sell a gift card isn’t the easiest option, you can typically get a good return. Make sure you meet in a public place and have access to Wi-Fi / LTE service to verify the balance of the card for them. It’s an easy way to make quick cash (without getting hit up by online fees) or barter trade for another item.

Cliff Mytton shows us why you should always chase a penalty kick

first_imgSaturday Jan 26, 2008 Cliff Mytton shows us why you should always chase a penalty kick I received a link to this interesting try from the 1998 Top14 Final between Stade Francais and Perpignan from a guy who was actually at the game ten years ago.Legendary flyhalf Diego Dominguez’s long range penalty kick hits the post and bounces back for Kiwi centre Cliff Mytton, who has followed up the kick like his school coach told him to.A great example of hard work paying off. He would have chased kicks like this 100 times without anything happening from it. But the one time it really counts, in the final, his luck turns. Nice to see hard work rewarded.

James O’Connor on life in the UK and Wallaby ambitions – Total Rugby

first_imgWednesday Apr 30, 2014 James O’Connor on life in the UK and Wallaby ambitions – Total Rugby James O’Connor left Australia to seek greener pastures at London Irish and is clearly enjoying life in the Northern Hemisphere. Total Rugby put together this feature on the former Wallaby, where he speaks about rugby abroad, tactics and playing for his country. He needs to find a team in Australia though, which appears to be a challenge. O’Connor will join Toulon at the end of the season, then aims to get back to Australia to be eligible for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The problem, it appears, is that there isn’t too much interest from the teams in Australia, with the Rebels, Waratahs and Brumbies reportedly not interested.The Force are rebuilding after some previous issues, and have stated that they’re not sure they’d want to risk upsetting things again. The Reds is his best bet, but Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie has said that despite his fondness for O’Connor, it’s not his job to find the talented back a team.“I have left it up to him to work out how he gets back to Australia and that’s between him and the provinces really,” McKenzie told Fox Sports recently.“The people he has to convince are those people. They’ve got team cultures and how they want to go about business, and they also have salary caps and all those things.“He obviously chose to go offshore. Well, getting back onshore and getting back here, that’s the challenge he has got to sort out. I am not out there peddling anyone’s case. I have to be respectful of players who are here and plugging away and doing good things.“In the end, the melting pot for the World Cup will become obvious at the start of next year, and we’ll go from there,” the former Reds coach added. For Wallaby and rugby fans’ sake, it would be great to see him back in the gold and green jumper, especially with the World Cup such a showcase event. This video from Total Rugby gives us some insight into his frame of mind, and how much he’s enjoying life and rugby at London Irish.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Soteria Pulumu suspended from Women’s World Cup for Spear Tackle

first_imgTuesday Aug 5, 2014 Soteria Pulumu suspended from Women’s World Cup for Spear Tackle There were two suspensions that followed the opening day’s play at the Women’s Rugby World Cup in France. Mandisa Williams of South Africa was banned for punching, while Samoa’s Soteria Pulumu received a 5 week ban for a tackle. Here is a look at the latter. Samoan fullback Soteria Pulumu appeared before independent Judicial Officer Jeremy Summers in Paris on Saturday, after having received a red card for an act of Foul Play contrary to Law 10.4(j), namely lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground.She admitted to the foul play. Having heard all the evidence, the Summers determined the player’s actions were reckless and warranted a mid-range sanction, which has an entry point of 8 weeks.The sanction was aggravated by one week to take into account the need for a deterrent for so-called “tip tackles”.  The Judicial Officer took into account various mitigating factors including the player’s remorse, conduct at the hearing, early admission and her clean disciplinary record. The sanction was reduced by four weeks to a final sanction of 5 weeks.In the context of the tournament, Pulumu will miss the remaining matches at the tournament and is further suspended from 18 August to midnight on 24 August 2014. She has the right to appeal, but after seeing the footage (below), there is probably not much of a case to be made.View all the best tries and match highlights from the opening roundADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Carlin Isles turns on the jet shoes as he lights up Hong Kong with more stunning tries

first_imgMonday Apr 8, 2019 Carlin Isles turns on the jet shoes as he lights up Hong Kong with more stunning tries The USA finished third at the Hong Kong Sevens at the weekend to stay on course to secure the overall World Rugby Sevens Series. Fiji won the series leg, taking their fifth Hong Kong Sevens title in succession. ADVERTISEMENTMike Friday’s team still lead the series rankings, although tournament winners Fiji are closing the gap on them. With three stages remaining, it may go down to the wire, although the USA will be boosted by the return of Perry Baker for the final two rounds in London and Paris. However, Baker’s longtime try-scoring partner for the USA Carlin Isles certainly made up for his absence in Hong Kong, topping the try-scoring charts over the weekend with nine.His brace against reigning series champions South Africa proved vital in their quarter-final win, with this try, in particular, showcasing what a talent he is: Isles’ displays acceleration and rapid agility in this try that is unmatched by many on the Sevens circuit, if any, as he is able to stop and start to leave the defender for dead. The American is in sensational form heading to Singapore, and it is form like that which could deliver the World Series to the States.ADVERTISEMENTHere is the other try he scored in this match, when he burned one of the Blitzbok’s quicker players.Say what you will about his lack of an all round game, we must give credit where its due – he knows his way to the try line.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , News Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Surprise omissions a sign of depth of Scotland RWC squad

first_imgTuesday Sep 3, 2019 Surprise omissions a sign of depth of Scotland RWC squad In the wake of Gregor Townsend announcing his 31-man squad for the World Cup, fans are taking positives in the depth of Scottish rugby currently.ADVERTISEMENTThere are some noticeable exclusions from the squad, namely Rory Hutchinson and Huw Jones in the centres and Matt Fagerson and Magnus Bradbury in the back-row, which have vexed some fans.The Northampton Saints’ Hutchinson’s omission has caused the most outrage on social media, despite the centre only earning three caps. He has already won over many Scotland fans, particularly after last season with the Saints, and his ability to play centre or fly-half makes him a popular figure. However, Pete Horne, who is equally versatile, has been picked ahead of him.Similarly, fans are also shocked that Jones has failed to make the squad after being a focal point in Townsend’s teams so far during his tenure as head coach.While there are those that are not happy with these decisions, some are seeing the other side of the coin, that this is a sign of the strength in depth currently. That is why some fans are saying this is the strongest squad in years, and it is clear that Townsend must have had a real selection dilemma.Yep! Gutted for some of those players not selected but how good is it to finally have some strength in depth.— Cath 💕💕 (@RugbyCath) September 3, 2019Hutchinson will no doubt be a reserve should an injury arise to someone in Japan.ADVERTISEMENTIn the case of the back-row, while there are some players that are unlucky to miss out, the question would be who to drop to accommodate them. There are always going to be certain players that different fans do not want in the squad, but on the whole, it is understandable why Townsend has opted for every player.Horne may be a controversial call, but he is versatile, experienced and has been tested by Townsend in the past.With Sam Johnson, Duncan Taylor and Chris Harris being the other centres in the squad, two good players were always going to miss out, and some fans are enjoying the depth in that position.Scotland RWC 2019 squadForwards: John Barclay, Simon Berghan, Fraser Brown, Scott Cummings, Allan Dell, Zander Fagerson, Grant Gilchrist, Jonny Gray, Stuart McInally (capt), WP Nel, Gordon Reid , Jamie Ritchie, Blade Thomson, Ben Toolis, George Turner, Hamish Watson, Ryan Wilson.Backs: Darcy Graham, Chris Harris, Adam Hastings, Stuart Hogg, George Horne, Peter Horne, Sam Johnson, Blair Kinghorn, Greig Laidlaw, Sean Maitland, Ali Price, Finn Russell, Tommy Seymour, Duncan Taylor.ADVERTISEMENTIt’s a very strong squad. Hard decisions in the back row and centres. Wish some of the Internet armchair selectors would chill out a bit— Under_the_Frog (@Under_The_Frog) September 3, 2019Would have gone for Hutchinson over Horne & Fagerson over Wilson but still the best squad for at least 15 years.
