    Shoot, I don't remember the name of the website but there's a place online just for selling/buying/trading gift cards. You might be able to trade it for a store you actually shop at.

    it seems like when you sell gift cards, you're bound to lose some "face value". while using gift cards can give you instant 10% to 20% saving.
