Folks,

I found a $15 VISA gift card sitting around from my motherboard mail-in rebate and was trying to think of what to do with it when I realized -- duh, Bitcoin!

Obviously I'm not going to be selling the card number directly (unless someone wants it, I suppose) but I would be willing to use it to buy a gift card to Amazon or Newegg or whatever else online.  I would prefer to deal with someone who has a highish OTC rating and/or who would be willing to use ClearCoin to send the BTC.

I am requesting the face value of the card, exchanged at whatever the mtgox ask is when we do the deal.

Tips are always welcome and can be sent to 1CZ8QgBWZSV3nLLqRk2BD3B4qDbpWAEDCZ

Thanks to ye, we have the final piece.

I'm tempted - can you buy a GBP (UK) Amazon voucher with that?

Probably, but I'd have to buy it from amazon.co.uk (gift cards are not transferable between .com and .co.uk) and that presents two challenges:

  • I don't know what rate Amazon converts USD to GBP at, so I don't know what amount to enter in the card field.
  • I don't know what the fees would be to use the card internationally.  My guess is that they would be more than PayPal's respective fee to send money using a credit card.
