GiftCardRescue.com, the Inc. 5000 company that enables consumers to purchase gift cards at a discounted rate and sell unwanted gift cards for cash, today released their annual Top 20 Most Wanted Gift Card list for the seventh consecutive year. Topping this year’s list is Home Depot, followed by Lowe’s, Amazon.com, Walmart, and Starbucks. This is the first year that Home Depot has been ranked No. 1 on the Most Wanted Gift Card list.
This year’s Top 20 list is based on a national sample of approximately 22,000 gift card wish lists. Making the list for the first time are Toys R Us, Victoria’s Secret, and Dick’s Sporting Goods. “We were all quite surprised by the results of this year’s Top 20 list. This is the first time in three years that Walmart is no longer in the top spot,” says Founder and CEO, Kwame Kuadey. “The rise in home improvement gift cards in this year’s list is a good indicator of where consumers are spending their money and how they feel about the economy.”
To provide holiday shoppers with more insight, this year’s list has a breakdown of the top gift cards by category, including the Most Wanted Gift Cards under Superstores, Restaurants and Convenience Foods, Travel and Vacation, Sports and Outdoors, Electronics and Appliances, and more.
