Asking for a friend...
Anyone have experience with https://www.cardswap.ca? A friend won a large denomination gift card to Danier Leather at a Christmas Party. She hasn't had any offers trying to sell it on FB (for a reduced face value)
I've also used it to sell a bunch of gift cards I won (spa GCs that didn't work at any spa I liked/trusted nearby). I think I also got 70%, and it ended up turning over quicker than expected.

I suspect we'll soon start seeing less of those "Like, share and tag a friend" contests on Facebook :)

Great!

I’d suggest adding some pics and a profile pic too if you can. Sponsors on IG often say outright if it looks like you’re a fake account or that you’re tagging fake accounts, they’ll disqualify you.

Good luck!!

Hi - just wondering why the Marilyn 10 Days of Giveaways is in the Expired forum when there are still 4 days left and it doesn't really end until January. Thanks.

Maui contest - Draw is on December 18th and the usual, will be contacted within 10 days etc.

I won a $100 prepaid MC too and received the card almost 2 weeks ago. It looked like one of those mastercard applications with the card attached to the sheet.

There have been a few like that. The latest one I remember was from Pepsi/Lays where you had to buy 2 different products and upload a picture of the receipt and they were giving away 100 $500 shop.NHL.com gift cards. I don't think it was posted here though.

Darn, I wish someone would have posted that here. We totally buy those products anyways.

Thank you to our wonderful group of instagrammers, you know who you are. I was traveling today for work, got home, and had so many tags, so many contests. Makes it easy to catch up. Thank you!! Good luck all!
