Swagbucks and e-gift cards
Hi Guys, need some opinions...
I have been saving up my swagbucks since joining earlier this year and finally got to the amount I wanted and went to order two gift cards I intended to use as gifts for my nephews. But when I was about to order, it told me that the Amazon cards would be delivered to my inbox, and that my physical address was just needed for verification, which I take to mean they aren't "physical" cards, but rather codes. Rght?
So I don't feel comfortable with printing a certificate off the computer and giving it as a gift-- heck, I BARELY feel comfortable with gift cards...
So I could:
- print the cards and give them...
- send the money to paypal and buy cards that way
- use the codes for a different store, buy things I need, then take the money saved and buy the cars
Anyone know if I can use a target e-gift card to buy physical gift cards (either online or in store)???
I'm trying to do Christmas as frugally as possible this year, already got 3 gas cards from my Discover rewards, will do a Bed, Bath, and Beyond for SD21 once the next statement closes, and wanted to do these two cards from swagbucks and one from mypoints(hopefully).
Advice???In times like these, it helps to recall there have always been times like these.

Amazon gift cards are frequently printed, and that's fine - but if they attach to your amazon account, they're permanently there, even unused. You can't transfer gift card balance even by buying another gift card.Baby Step #1: $1000 in savings!
