News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Is it safe to trade bitcoins for AMAZON/NEWEGG gift cards? I mean what are the guarantees the codes/cards will work when you enter them?

I'd like to buy some AMAZON/NEWEGG vouchers with bitcoins, hopefully at 60% of card price but I'm not sure if it is wise to do this.

You can try to look for trusted sellers or sellers who have already completed a few transactions with other users. Ask other users about the person you are buying from. This will help you stay safe, hopefully. You can also hire an escrow if necessary.

Those guys are charging a premium for buying with BTC, but it may be worth it. I'm not sure if they're legit or not.

People will usually trade Amazon/Newegg GCs on #bitcoin-otc if you ask, and there you'll have a rating system to make sure the person is not a scammer.
