My choices were a) return to my coworkers debit card, or b) take a $56.71 merchandise credit. Not wanting to offend my coworker, I opted for the credit. Now, the only things I can stand from there are hand soap and the Blue Spa line (for the most part). I'm all stocked up on the spa products and I refuse to buy almost $60 worth of soap. I could keep the card and use when needed, but that means walking into the store or ordering online (and ordering online means s&h costs), neither of which I like to do.
My new plan is to sell/swap this gift card (preferably for a Sephora card to add to my stash of those), but only places I found online only offer about 50% of the total value. I kind of feel like that's not worth it. Have any of you had to do something similar? Have you had any better luck? Any other solutions I haven't thought of/found?
