More proof that gift cards are not like cash

As if gift card issuers didn’t already let us know the gift cards we pay cash for are not actually meant to be treated like cash, Sears announced that gift cards can not be used towards the qualifying purchase price of their $50 men’s clothing rebate promotion.

This sounds an aweful lot like the Apple fiasco where they would not allow iTunes gift cards to be used towards the purchase of Apple hardware in Canada.
