Have you ever purchased gift cards online?? I never have...and I have seen many ads for it lately. I was curious as to if they have a charge for this or how soon you would get the card?? I mean I can go to any Walgreens, Kmart, even my grocery store has the little set up displays were you can buy them right there and have them instantly --especially since they are usually gifts for someone else. Do you get your gift cards online?? What stores do you normally get a gift card for... are they for you or are they gifts for others??

No I have not. I have thought about bidding on some on ebay but they get a little high for me to pay what they are asking. I have wanted to buy gift cards on craigslist as well but never found a good enough deal or a card for a store that I wanted to buy. But however I have won gift cards online and I have sold them as well. I guess it just depends on what it is and if I need it or not. Take care and nice discuss bookreadermom08:) Happy mylotting as well.

I have never get or send a card online. I am not interested to use them. I am pleased to send goods as gifts, give gifts from the card.

I got an email yesterday about getting a $50.00 gift card from Burger King. I typed in my name and email address. Then, they wanted to sign up for a bunch of offers. I said to myself, "Forget it"!. I have also had offers to get a free gift card from Walmart, Home Depot, etc. with the same result. No, I never hav gotten one online. Kathy.

oh yeah, those ones I never fall for... I have come across some where you actually purchase the online gift cards and that caught my attention...not that I want to purchase them online, since I can go into a store and get them myself and have them in my hand and a receipt that has proof of how much is on there... I am kind of leary about the online purchase ones. I have received gift cards from 2 sites so far... my squishy cash, and mypoints... for those ones are great because they dont cost me anything but my time online!!! thanks for the response and have a great day!
