    Well thank you for giving me a $25 Cabela's Gift card and a Amazon $25 gift card.

    They helped me burn through $100.00 dollars buying a Luhr Jensen Mini-Chief Smoker and Mad Men Season 5 on Blue-Ray.

    I suppose that's better than spending $150.00

    Gotta be honest with ya bud, STFU and be grateful for what you get. If your gifts suck donate them to charity, someone could who needs them can use them.

    I went to Starbucks to get a gift card, but the sign on the door said "temporarily closed due to plumbing issues".
    So I went to Walgreen's and got one. They sell gift cards for like 40 restaurants, stores, etc.

    Sorry if you got a lump of coal, however;

    The point is not that my "gifts suck."

    It is that gift cards encourage you to spend money on yourself.

    Indeed I gave copiously to P.F. Chang and Red Robins.

    At both places if you buy $100 you get $20 free, which is actually a pretty good deal on the surface, however I'm sure the restaurants balance the 20% free food/service with the customers that show up with $25 gift cards and either spend $26+, or spend $20 and forget about the $5 remaining on the card.
