I'm a lucky girl. For every occasion, from Christmas to birthdays to anniversaries, I receive a bevy of gift cards. I'm told that I am hard to shop for. Really?! I think I'm rather easy to shop for; a good book or anything from Paper Source is a sure pleaser. Regardless, my wallet inevitably gets stretched out because I carry gift cards around with me, for months or for years even.
I just found a service that allows me to track, swap, and register my gift cards, so I can earn interest on them. In my effort to start my year a bit more organized, I registered with Leverage Card. It's a free service that's worth a try since it allows users to earn 1% interest on their gift cards. More importantly, I'll never lose another gift card again.
