It is terribly difficult to navigate through ABC Gift Cards inventory. Although the selling and trading features are convenient, trying to buy a gift card from this site can really be a nightmare.
The amount that ABC Gift Cards will pay you for your unwanted gift cards depends on the merchant and the balance of the card. Even though there is no set amount, we have found that ABC Gift Cards will pay up to about 90 percent of the remaining balance on your card, which we liked.
One feature of this site that we really enjoyed is it allows you to directly trade your gift card for an Amazon.com gift card of the same value. Only a small transaction fee applies when you choose this option.
ABC Gift Card has a small inventory and is missing some major categories of gift cards. For instance, we weren't able to find gift cards for flowers, travel, office supplies, books and gaming.
Searching for gift cards to buy from ABC Gift Cards is very aggravating. The buy page has no search feature, so you must scroll endlessly down through all the cards that are currently available. However, the gift cards are listed in alphabetical order, which helps a little bit with searching, but scrolling through all of them is a lengthy process and can be frustrating.
On the website you'll find many helpful FAQs, and ABC Gift Cards has also made available customer its terms and conditions and its guarantee to buyers and sellers. As a buyer you can feel confident that your gift card will work properly. Sellers can feel confident that they will receive payment in full with little complication. In the event that you have questions or need to speak with ABC Gift Cards regarding a transaction, you can contact the company by phone, by mail or by filling out an online contact form.
ABC Gift Cards doesn't have as user-friendly of a website as many of the other gift card exchange services we reviewed, but it has the necessities. While searching for a gift card to purchase can be difficult, ABC Gift Cards isn't otherwise terribly hard to use, and you can sell or trade cards of any balance.
