Time to take those gift cards you got on sale and save even more! The flash sale is good through Monday.

Just read the 'fine print':

  • Not applicable to any pre-sales or gift certificates.


So, too bad so sad for those that got gift cards/certificates?

No, it means that new gift certificates are not eligible for the discount. Those that were purchased during the gift card sale earlier this year are essentially cash at VO. Itís like using pre-tax dollars.

It means you can't buy a gift card at 20% off.

Whew, thanks for clarifying that! I too read it as meaning I couldn't use the gift cert. I bought a while back... -20% x2 is pretty sweet. Time for a little shopping.
