Question Is it safe to sell Amazon gift cards (codes)?

I feel like I've seen lots of people do it here on DS, but is it safe to sell an Amazon Gift Card Code on here? How do I make sure that they don't enter the code, get the $, and then claim that it didn't work? Do I just only do business with people with a lot of good feedback?

Thanks!

That can be tricky and a bit of a risk. I personally would only sell them to people I know which is what I have done in the past. People I know wouldn't try and scam me kwim?

I have wondered this myself. I have a target gift card I want to sell. I'd take a close look at how long they've been a member, their feedback, and the type of posts they make. And from my experience, some people who like to talk about their Christianity in their signature are not always honest.

You might just offer to "buy" the item and ship it to them so you have proof. I think with the amount of people who Swagbucks, people would be willing to buy the gift cards. (codes) I agree that you would want to sell only to somebody you trusted.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I took your advice and didn't sell it in here. I wrote a post on Facebook about it and got a response right away from a trusted friend, so it all worked out great.
