How Much of The $21 Billion In Unspent Gift Cards Do You Own
When you’re not sure of what to gift someone because you’re not sure about their taste or likes, you resort the the easy solution, gift cards!
Gift cards are great because they’re easy to carry with you, just in case you happen to be shopping at that store or eating at that restaurant, you can just whip it out and use!
Apparently not everyone is doing this though! People usually forget they have them and don’t use them, despite visiting that store or restaurant multiple times. Millions of them go unused each year and if you combine their values together, it’s estimated to be in the billions!
A survey found that two-thirds of Americans have at least one unspent gift card stored in a pocket of theirs, a drawer, wallet, or purse! About half mentioned they actually lose the gift card before even having the chance to use it!
There is as much as $21 billion dollars worth of unspent money in those unused and lost gift cards. In the survey done, majority of the people who were polled said their unredeemed cards were under the value of $200.
Do you have any unused gift cards? And how much are the values on them? Chances are you’re contributing to the $21 Billion dollars in unspent gift cards!
