    Hi

    Quick Question (I've already done a search but can't find an answer)

    Can I buy an Apple Store Gift Card (not an app store one, but to buy hardware) in store? So that it can then be used online to purchase items.

    I'm in the UK if that makes any difference. The apple website only talks about buying over the phone and online but I want to get one in store, with cash.

    Thanks

    I've never bought one in-store for this purpose but I can't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to. 9.9/10 times a GC will just have a card number on it, so I can't see why you wouldn't be able to just type those numbers in in the site when purchasing.

    That's what I was wondering, whether Apple Stores actually sell non-itunes Gift Cards. Must do surely! The nearest one to me is some miles away so I guess I'll have to pop in at some point and find out.

    Yes. I have done it many times. I’ve purchased them for exactly the same reason as the OP, as well as for Christmas and birthday gifts.
