Shipping is always free and you can get 92% back on your cards that you sell. You can put merchants in your wish list so that you will be notified when a certain gift card is available for purchase.

I was given the opportunity to try the service out. I didn’t have any gift cards I didn’t want to sell but I was given some swap points to use to purchase a gift card. It was very simple. I decided I wanted a Tim Hortons gift card so I searched for Tim Hortons and found a $50 card was available which was perfect as that is how many points I had.

When you go to a merchant page, it shows you any cards that are available or just sold and how many swap points you will get back for purchasing it. If you scroll down there is also merchant information like the company’s website, how to check your balance on a gift card from that merchant and other information.

There are all kinds of merchants to choose from.

After ordering my card, I immediately received my SwapPoints and my card was mailed to me in less than a week. I have tested it out a few times with no problems, the proper amount was on it and it worked great (and the Tim Hortons tasted good of course.)

It is all very simple and I think it’s a great idea if you get a gift card for a store or restaurant you don’t really use, just don’t expect that since your card is worth $25, you will be able to get a different card worth $25 in it’s place, that’s not exactly how it works. Different cards are worth different amounts of points though.
