    What are you asking exactly - its awkwardly worded and I'm unsure what the question is. :confused:

    If you're asking about using apple store gift cards to purchase a Mac on Amazon - you cannot do that. Amazon does not accept apple gift cards as a payment.

    Are you trying to buy a gift card in Amazon to pay for a Mac at an Apple Store?

    Amazon does not sell Apple gift cards.

    Apple has 2 types of gift cards. Apple Gift Cards which is for buying from the Apple store and iTunes gift cards (in various guises) that is only good for things (Music, Movies, Books, Apps) from the iTunes store.

    Why not just buy the Mac, why buy gift cards to use for a Mac for yourself?

    i would assume the intention was to combine the total amount of gift cards into a value that can be used entirely at one store or the other.
