You can use the Best Buy egift cards to buy an Amazon gift card at the store. Remember they will most likely be Amazon Kindle gift cards but as you probably know, you can use these for anything on Amazon.

I've redeemed quite a few this way and not one issue doing this at the store!

Hello fellow Vigglers!

I haven't redeemed yet but wanted to ask a question. I was going to get SB since the target card is gone. When I went to redeem it asked for my name and address. Is this normal and is it a safe site? Thanks!

We went to 2 Best Buys today and both were out of all gift cards except for Best Buy cards. We had planned on getting 3 Amazon cards. One of the employees said they have been out for about a week and a half and he was not sure if they would be getting anymore Amazon cards. So if your store still has them....good for you!

I was told that they are being discontinued, Target also told me that about the Amazon cards as they were out to.

Went to CVS today and the manager would not accept the e-card.
She said she never saw it before and that was a lie as I used them before in that store. I called corporate and filed a complaint against the store. They said the manager should have called them to confirm the viggle cards.
Geez. What a waste of time. I won't get CVS if they come back.

Mama House Mama - yes, you need to verify the name/address the first time. It's for taxes if you get over $550.

Princess Disney Mom - I used two CVS egift cards yesterday. They scanned in without a problem. Sorry about your problem.

Wanna be Ariel - Papa Johns - can stack if choose cash option for payment, otherwise only 1GC per order

Viggle added a sweepstakes to their rewards. 1,000 points to enter for a chance to win a trip to Hollywood. I bought 1 entry for it.

No clue. I just saw that on Slickdeals. My PJs is too far to order from on a regular basis, but we did get the free Super Bowl pizza.

I've used CVS e-cards a couple of times and they've just scanned them. The second time I used one, the first scan didn't work and she was going to just type in the code, but tried the hand scanner again and it took it. It was one where my ink was starting to get low. I'm glad you called corporate about it. Did you finish your purchase or just leave it? I would've left it.

Isn't Tuesday when they tend to restock gc's? I am really keeping my fingers crossed for Sephora, otherwise it's Itunes and Starbucks for me!

I used one Papa John's gc Saturday and chose the cash option for carryout when I ordered online. When I got to the store they wouldn't accept the gift card. I emailed corporate to see what happened. I'll let you know when I find out.
