I have two gift cards. One with $9.01 and $1.98 on the other. What should I buy with them. For some reason you cannot use them at restaurants. so what the heck do I do with a $1.98 gift card? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also you cannot add to these gift cards, so once they are spent they are trash.

It really depends on what cards they are as Pitt Chick asks - basically, just look for an item(s) that's a little less than the value (w/tax to take it close) and have to eat a couple cents loss.

Same question.

I'm guessing that they're Visa gift cards or something? If you can spend them anywhere, maybe the grocery store or buying necessities like shampoo, soap, toilet paper, etc? It'll knock off a few bucks at least. Without knowing you personally, it's hard to pick a couple of exact products that you can buy and enjoy with that amount.

For instance, with $10.00 you could buy:
-A movie ticket (depending on where you live, I think that general admission is 9.00 in my area but it's more expensive other places)
-A Puzzle
-A Bobble-head
-Bubbles
-Flowers
-Pens/Stationary
-Candy
-Cigarettes
-Gas for your car
-Coffee mug
-Etc.

Have fun

PS It's lame that you can't add money on it because I'd say add a few bucks and then give it to a friend as a birthday gift or something
