If your gift cards don’t appeal to you, simply turn them into cash!
Did some of your gifts—or rather, gift cards—miss the mark this Mother’s Day? It’s okay to admit it; we’ve all been there. You’re touched by your loved ones’ thoughtfulness, but you doubt you’ll ever use that restaurant gift certificate or shop at the clothing store they think you’ll love.
Mother’s Day has brought in record spending this year, totaling $35.7 billion in the U.S. alone. That’s almost $4 billion more than in 2022. Averaging $274 per person, families have gone above and beyond to celebrate Mom this year.
You can bet that all this spending brings a lot of gift cards for beloved moms everywhere. Unfortunately, not all gift cards appeal to their recipient. Let’s face it—we’ve all gotten plenty of gifts from our loved ones that we know we’ll probably never use. And sometimes, with the sheer number of gift cards we end up collecting, they just get forgotten. That’s why today, people in the U.S. have an average of $175 in unused gift card funds and vouchers.
In fact, 42% of Baby Boomers, 43% of Gen Xers, and 52% of Millennials have one or more unused gift cards, USA Today reports. Additionally, gift cards can easily get lost. Turning them into cash will prevent this from happening, keeping all your funds in the same place. Want to pool your money from gift cards for a larger purchase? That’s also a breeze with Prepaid2Cash. Those smaller amounts on individual gift cards might cover the cost of a weekend getaway or that home appliance you’ve been eyeing.

Instead of storing it in a drawer and forgetting about it, you can turn it into cash using the Prepaid2Cash app. (We’re a judgment-free zone!) Then, you can get yourself something you really want.
