We all get the gift cards that we forget to use, or maybe it's not the right gift card for you, or you use some of the card and then have a few bucks left.

GameStop has been testing out a program in Austin, San Marcos and Round Rock to buy back those cards. You have to have at least $5 on the card, but you can have up to $1,000 on it. They'll take cards from about 600 brands.

You then have the option of using those cards at GameStop or exchanging them for cash, with a 20 percent reduction in value.

The program is expected to go nationwide at the end of this year.
