New York, NY (PRWEB) December 3, 2010
Managing your money and trading in your gift cards became a lot more fun and rewarding today, as the innovative positive-action site DailyFeats -- http://www.dailyfeats.com -- announced a pioneering partnership with the web's largest secured gift card exchange Plastic Jungle -- http://www.plasticjungle.com -- to help people discover, share, and earn monetary rewards for actions that strengthen their wallets and help them improve their lives.
DailyFeats is a social platform for positive actions that support the body, mind, home, and community; its members earn points and rewards for the positive actions – or feats – they complete and check in. Members of DailyFeats' private beta, now including Plastic Jungle users, can check in their feats online at DailyFeats.com or from their mobile phones via SMS, and then share those actions both at DailyFeats and throughout their social networks. By offering users the opportunity to earn rewards for a wide range of positive feats, DailyFeats and its partners seek to encourage people to live as well as they possibly can.
Through the Plastic Jungle marketplace and its proprietary payments applications, users can sell unredeemed gift cards for up to 92% of the verified gift card balance or buy gift cards to their favorite stores at up to 30% off. Plastic Jungle will now directly sponsor two specific feats at DailyFeats related to trading and donating gift cards, boosting the point value of those feats.
DailyFeats members and Plastic Jungle users collect points each time they complete one of these sponsored actions, or any of the hundreds of other feats available at DailyFeats.com, allowing them to unlock access to a suite of rewards from partners like 1-800-FLOWERS, American Airlines®, Marriott®, Staples, and many more, plus over 170,000 rewards from local merchants across the country.
"We're excited to be teaming up with Plastic Jungle," said Morley Ivers, COO of DailyFeats, "because our missions align so well. DailyFeats and Plastic Jungle share the common goal of enabling people to improve their lives; together we'll help people find the motivation and tools they need to take control of their finances, one step at a time. Plastic Jungle is the latest organization to join DailyFeats’ coalition of companies, all of which are alike in their desire to make a meaningful difference in the world by encouraging people to take positive actions in their daily lives."
Approximately $30 billion in gift cards are sitting unredeemed in sock drawers across America, according to recent estimates. "Imagine the difference we can make if even a fraction of that money makes it back into consumers' wallets, or goes to support worthy charities," added Kristin Donelson, Vice President of Marketing for Plastic Jungle. "DailyFeats and Plastic Jungle will help make that happen."
DailyFeats will launch publicly in 2011; meanwhile, it's available for free at http://www.dailyfeats.com, where new visitors can sign up to join its ongoing private beta.
