Have you ever stashed a gift card somewhere, and forgot about it? Do you have a gift card to a store you really don’t shop at? Well, check out the Tango Card. The Tango Card is a flexible gift card that can be redeemed for marquee brand gift cards like Amazon.com or Starbucks, donated to select nonprofit organizations, or even redeemed for cash. So for example, imagine you have a $100 Tango Card – you can go spend $50 at Amazon.com, then donate $25 to Habitat for Humanity and then get $25 on a Starbucks card. There are also free mobile apps that let people organize gift cards in one place, use gift cards in-store from a mobile device, and receive email alerts and reminders to use gift cards.
I recently received a Tango card and redeemed it for a $25 Target Gift Card that will be mailed to me and a $25 Amazon.com e-card that has already been added to my Amazon.com account! One of the best features in my opinion is the option to add any gift card you have when you create an account to keep track of all your gift cards and balances. Unless you are super organized, it’s easy to loose track of your cards or just forget that you have them.
Check out your options at Tango Card to see what brands of gift cards are available for purchase and non-profits you can donate to.
