ambiguous amount giftcard


I guess the surprise is for the person you give the gift card to when you say it has $100 on it and it doesn't? Or when it inevitably gets lost with $20 left (which the store is probably counting on). Thanks, Kris!

Confederate dollars, perhaps?

If I had a $100 gift card, I would use it to buy $10 of merchandise and another $100 gift card (for $89.99). I guess that leaves a balance of a penny, but you can keep the change.

My man Dan, sounds like a plan!

I'd hate to fix your math but wait no won't' $100 - $89.99 = $10.01 + 10% tax of $8.99 you'd save $1.02.

I know math is evil.

@Ed, but on the $100.oo a 10% tax (where do YOU live?) would be %110.oo
