Gilmore Girls and a $50 gift card giveaway



I was lucky enough to get a few special treats for Christmas this year. I always ask for chocolate, organic body wash, a scented candle and a chick flick. This year, I mentioned to my husband that I would like to re-watch Gilmore Girls. I started watching that particular TV show a few years in, so I am eager to go back and start from the beginning. My husband got me three of the seven seasons for Christmas, but he wasn’t able to find the first season.

Enter CardSwap.ca. CardSwap credited my account with $75 to review their online gift card buying and selling service.

After eagerly perusing the cards available to buy— like Old Navy, Roots, The Body Shop and Cineplex—I selected a $50 e-code for Amazon.ca and a $25 gift card for Chapters/Indigo Books. The e-code arrived in my email inbox almost immediately, so I was able to use it towards my Amazon order that very day. I ordered the remaining four seasons of Gilmore Girls. Yay! My Chapters/Indigo card will arrive in the mail soon.


Earn SwapPoints

The cool thing about CardSwap.ca is that you earn SwapPoints for every card you purchase. Once you earn 1,000 points ($10) you can redeem the points for gift cards from places like Subway and Shoppers Drug Mart. Or, you can even cash out through PayPal. If you are planning to go shopping anyway (Winners anyone?), order gift cards ahead of time and earn points! Or, if you are giving gift cards to friends and family, buy them this way and earn points to buy extra gift cards for yourself. It’s a win-win really.

Sell Your Unwanted Gift Cards

Christmas is over. Did you get any gift cards you won’t use? CardSwap can handle that for you too. Submit the merchant name and gift card value on CardSwap.ca, and they will send you an offer for up to 92% of the value of your card. Mail them your gift card with their free prepaid shipping label and you will receive an email confirmation when CardSwap receives your card. They will then mail you a cheque or credit your CardSwap account so you can purchase a gift card from a Canadian merchant of your choice.

Win a $50 Gift Card!

CardSwap.ca is giving one lucky Woman in Real Life Canadian reader $50 to buy a gift card or e-code. Enter using the rafflecopter below. Good luck and happy shopping!

*CardSwap.ca provided me with a credit to review their services, but all opinions are my own.
