Are Discounted Gift Cards Safe?

Savvy Community: Have You Ever Purchased Discounted Gift Cards?

Reader maude wants to know if it's safe to purchase discounted gift cards. This question was posted in the How Do You Save group:

I just read about sites where people will sell their gift cards for a discounted amount on Get Rich Slowly. This seems like a great idea but also one that can easily get out of hand where you might spend money on gift cards since they are discounted but necessarily what you need! I was thinking it might be great to have a cinema gift card for this summer's movie and maybe even try to save a little money on the CB2 daybed I have been eyeing but I am a little leery. Have you tried sites like Gift Card Granny?

To read about or spill similar savvy revelations, post in my How Do You Save group.

I have not tried it myself because I haven't had a need for it yet but I have heard good things. The sites that I have heard about are: plasticjungle.com, giftcardgranny.com, cardpool.com, giftcardcastle.com, giftcards.com, and giftah.com. Hope that helps!!

I've thought about it, but I'm not even really sure how it works.

I've never heard of this- I'd love to know if people have tried it, though.
