  • If I'm not wrong American Express charges an activation fee for their cards so it may still be a bargain.

  • That makes no sense whatsoever. Maybe the bidders aren't very smart??

  • They are stupid and why the hell would you purchase a gift card from e-bay? I wouldn't even trust that the card is legit.

  • Maybe it's not really a Gift Card? You drugs or something. I've seen ridiculous things like that on ebay before.
