U.S. Bancorp’s FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature cardholders can turn unwanted gift cards into FlexPoints through a new partnership the issuer announced March 22 with gift card exchange company Plastic Jungle.

Holders of the cards may visit the FlexPerks Visa Promotion Center to begin an exchange. Once they enter the gift card merchant name, card number and value, Plastic Jungle translates it into FlexPoints. If the cardholder is okay with Plastic Jungle’s determined value, he clicks “Accept,” and the FlexPoints appear in his account within two days, according to a press release.

“With the holidays over and spring break right around the corner, the gift card exchange is timely for cardholders looking to accumulate some extra FlexPoints for travel,” Cliff Cook, chief marketing officer for U.S. Bank Retail Payment Solutions, said in the release.
