I looked at Wizard’s Cupboard before posting this thread, and it looked decent enough. I figured I should ask to see if I could get any recommendations anyway. I might go with that one if no one else has any suggestions along the lines of “OMG this other store is the bestus!”
Roland I emailed SCG directly and they said:
“Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer gift certificates. My suggestion would be to look into pre-paid credit cards as we are able to accept most pre-paid credit cards (we are not able to accept the Visa Vanilla as it is not able to be registered with a billing address). I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please let us know if you have any other questions.”
My guess is just that they were having a hard time getting them working properly on their site. I build ecomm sites, it is a tricky thing to do.
I don’t want to get Dude a Visa gift card because he’s the sort of guy who would either refuse it or use it on gas or something practical. If I got him a gift cert for a Magic shop, well there’s no way he can refuse it - what am I going to do with it?
I was going to ask here what kind of MTG gift I could get him but I know nothing of his collection, his play style, etc. So I think a Magic shop gift cert would be the best fit.
