OT, I think this is something we discussed here once.
I noticed two handmade signs at the customer service desk, a big one and
a little one.
"Gift cards cannot be used to buy gift cards".
I haven't asked why. Afraid they won't know. Don't want to embarrass

Besides it's own gift cards, did that store also sell other gift
cards? Many stores do today. If I was a merchant and I sold you
a gift card, if I let you use it to buy other gift cards, you could
then use it to buy any other gift card I sell. Then instead of
the money being spent in my store, you could spend it anywhere.
I'm sure the merchants are getting some small margin for selling
gift cards, but it's not going to be the margin the merchant
would get if you used it to buy a new drill. And that would seem
to be the main purpose to using a gift card to buy another one,
wouldn't it, ie to convert it to something else?
