I've been following this forum for a while and read about people buying/selling gift cards a lot but I don't understand why. I did a search but haven't found the answer. I'm from Kuwait so maybe this is an American thing, but why do people sell/buy Gift Cards on Ebay? Here in the Middle East, gift cards are just cards with money on them from a particular store. I would guess people sell them to get money back if they're credit-only gift cards but why would you buy them? If you have the funds to buy a gift card why don't you just go into a store and make your purchase without a GC?
