Gift Cards

What’s the use of a gift card if I can’t get what I want from a store? I’ve got a Best Buy gift card with $40 left on it, but I can’t use it on a purchase of a Bluetooth mouse because Best Buy doesn’t have any Bluetooth mice in-store and you can only redeem your gift cards at “any Best Buy retail store”. To me, that’s crap and a half.

  1. Similar thing here; I received a Williams-Sonoma gift card, and it’s labeled that I have to use it in a store.

    Looking at their store locator, I guess there’s one in my local mall, but looking through their website & catalog, there’s a whole bunch of great stuff that they <i>don’t</i> ever stock in meat-space.
