(EXPIRED) 5x + 5% off on many gift cards via Swych

Swych has a promo code going for 5% off “any” gift card up to $200. Use promo code gofive to get the discount, though note that I did run into at least one gift card to which the promo code would not apply (and not all gift cards are available in any denomination you choose). Still, this is a good deal especially since Swych purchases paid for with a Chase Ink Cash (or Ink Plus) card through PayPal have been known to code at 5x.

The Deal

  • 5% off almost any gift card up to $200 through the Swych app using promo code gofive

Key Terms

  • One use per account
  • While supplies last (will likely get pulled sooner rather than later)
  • Works on a max gift card of $200

Quick Thoughts

As noted above, this will work on nearly any gift card. Many of the gift cards sold by Swych can regularly be purchased for a greater discount if buying secondhand, but some (like Best Buy) are not typically available for less, and you have the added benefit of not worrying about the card being compromised. Add 5x when paying with a Chase Ink card through PayPal and you have a recipe for a good deal.

Keep in mind that the code will not work if you add a gift card that costs more than $200. For example, Swych only sells American Airlines gift cards in denominations of $100 or $250 — you can not apply the code to a $250 gift card. I also tried applying to code to an Acorns gift card (which appears to only be available in denominations of $25) and it said the code could not be applied to that card.

Still, this will work on a wide enough range of cards to be useful in conjunction with 5x. I imagine this won’t likely last more than a day, so you’ll want to purchase sooner rather than later if interested.

Is it just me or will swych only allow customers to pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay. I do not use either of those. EDIT: I overlooked PayPal. That will work. Thanks for the tip.


[…] 5x + 5% off on many gift cards via Swych […]


Paying with Apple Pay discounts the 5x return using Ink Business Plus? Only Paypal? I seem to be unable to buy even a $50 gc using Paypal 🙁
