We are all use to hearing the admonition that money does not grow on trees. We have all used that expression with our children at times, when they asked for something that we felt that they did not needs. The shocker is that money does grow on trees in the Plastic Jungle.

What Are These Money Trees?

The art of gift giving has changed. Instead of spending hours in stores searching for the perfect gifts for everyone on our gift giving list, we give gift cards. We usually do just as lousy a job at selecting gift cards as we do at selecting just the right gifts for everyone on our lists. According to Deloitte and Touche, there are $30 billion in gift cards lying among socks in a sock drawer or miscellaneous junk in a kitchen cabinet drawer and that amount is growing at the rate of $8 billion every year. Do you have one of those unwanted gift cards stashed away somewhere? Would you like to get cash for it or swap it for a gift card for a store you do shop at? Now you can, by visiting the Plastic Jungle.

What is Plastic Jungle?

The Plastic Jungle is an online web site allows you to swap those unwanted gift cards for cards that you can use or sell them for cash. The Plastic Jungle is also a place where one can buy gift cards at a discount. The Plastic Jungle was founded in Santa Barbara, California in 2006.

Receive Up To 92 Percent of Their Current Value.

You can sell your unwanted gift cards and receive up to 92 percent of the balance on the card. The only serious qualifier is that the card has a minimum value of $25 at the time you sell it to the Plastic Jungle. Plastic Jungles pays either by check or PayPal.

Buy Gift Cards At Plastic Jungle and Save Up To 33 percent.

Save some substantial bucks by buying your gift cards from the Plastic Jungle. Save as much as 33 cents on the dollar on most popular gift cards. If the cards you want are not in stock when you check, you can reserve them for a future purchase. There are many advantages for purchasing all your cards from the Plastic Jungle. All transactions on the Plastic Jungle are guaranteed. There are never any transaction fees, shipping is always free, and there is never any expiration dates on the cards purchased on the Plastic Jungle. As I write this, there are 31 cards from which to choose.

Thank you For that Jerry. I always try to choose a present, as gift cards are an easy way out, but not much thought goes into it. But for some people, it's better if you don't know what they want.

I like the idea that you can sell back the cards. Good info, not heard of this one before.

I had never heard about it either, Mark, until I read a filler on it in the May 2011 issue of The Writer magazine that I subscribe to. The filler piqued my curiosity, so I did a little digging and came up with enough interesting information to produce this article.

There are many ways to add photos to your Wikinut articles but the easiest way is to use the image tool on the pub tool. Using this method you can add one photo for each section you add to your article.

Thank you Denise for the kind words. I think that if you trade cards for Amazon credits you get an even higher payout.

Happy Easter to you and Dan too, Denise. Right now I have got to go and supervise an army of mountain boys and girls as they search for the 15 dozen eggs I boiled, decorated and hid during the night. The only areas off limits to them are my office and my gun room.

That is a sensational idea! What a great way to end up with a gift you really want!
I must admit, i mostly use the cards I get (book tokens and Amazon) but if I were to get one I didn't want, this would be perfect :D
