Starting on 7/22/2010, we no longer allow auctions for prepaid credit cards (or money gift cards) from American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa. This rule was put in place because these cards are very much like cash, which has never been allowed on the site. Up until now, they have been sort of a loophole in the no-cash policy. However, this rule does NOT affect other kinds of gift cards. All other gift cards (Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc.) are still allowed on the site at this time.
We realize this decision is a bit controversial and we have received lots of feedback, both positive and negative on this change. As such, we are definitely interested in hearing your opinions. Feel free to open a ticket to let us know how you feel if you have not already. Thanks for everyone’s continued support!
