I've been planning on upgrading to a new MBP and this year I asked my family to give me Apple gift cards for my birthday instead of other gifts. Between my family and friends, I received a total of 11 gift cards. So I finally tried to place my order last night and immediately learned of the 8 gift card limit when ordering online, on the phone, or in the store. I went into my Apple Store today and asked if they could somehow combine my gift cards and they told me no. I'm not sure why there's a limit but what I am trying to do is find out if there's a way to work around this. Gift cards cannot be returned so it's not like I can have them return the cards and give me cash instead (plus I would feel like such a douche to even ask them to do that). I also don't want to try to sell my gift cards because I know I won't get their full value and I need as much of that money as I can get. Has anyone ever ran into a situation like this before or know of a possible solution?
