Shopper's drug mart GC to cash

Is there a way to convert a GC to cash or Amazon GC ? We were given a gc but we don't typically shop at shopper's drug mart ...

Sell on the BST Gift Card Forum.

Quick Search indicates 10% off seems to be what people are asking for.

In the past, some people have converted Shoppers Gift Cards into others, but the cashiers are not supposed to do this.

^^^ All the answers in this one reply. All of it is absolutely correct.

In-store won't fly. Since it was a gift, you shouldn't care if something is overpriced ... OR, just shop here and there for items you know the prices of and SDM is competitive on ... OR, if you can't be bothered take a bit of a loss and sell it.

Sounds like you haven’t been in an SDM in awhile
You might be quite surprised ...
Besides all the usual health & beauty goods
They also have a decent Magazine & Books Section
Seasonal Merchandise
Home Products (like Cleaning Supplies)
Cameras, Electronics & Tech
And an expanded Food & Beverage area
(Since becoming part of PC+ Loblaws Group)

Want to make that GC go even further
Be a smart shopper
Sign up for PCO
Shop on a 20x the Points Day / Weekend
And buy items on sale / promo from the flyer

You’ll save money ... plus earn at least 30% Back in PCO Points
Those PCO Points
You can then spend at a PC+ Loblaws Group Store ... or again at your local SDM

Example
$ 100 GC ... Spend it all on a 20x Event
= 100 x 15 Base Points x 20 = 30,000 PCO Points Earned
30,000 PCO Points = $ 30 in value you can use on future purchases

You can ask the cashier if they will convert it for you. Its YMMV but they mostly stopped doing it after the merge. That said, some still allow it and the system allows it as long as its below $400 (i think that's the number).
