Can I use the card for the Mac that I'm purchasing?
No you cannot.
Ok. Thank you!
You could probably easily sell it to someone for say $90 though.
Many people sell there's after receiving it, I'd say use it and enjoy the fruits of your promotion.
Are you talking about the gift card you got as a bonus when you bought a Mac?
If so, it depends on which card you have. In previous years, the gift card was for the Itunes/Mac App Store, but this year's promo is for an Apple Store gift card. The Apple Store gift card can most definitely be used at an Apple store or apple.com to (help) purchase hardware (new Mac) or accessories.
But even if it is an Apple STORE gift card, you cannot use it on the device that you are purchasing - effectively taking a discount on the purchase in lieu of the gift card. The gift card will be for a future purchase.
Without knowing for sure what card you are talking about, any answers you get here could be right, or wrong.
Purchase AppleCare separately and use the GC toward that!
It's a bit unorthodox but if you call and say your returning it by mail they will refund the AGC on the spot.
This however only works on orders placed over the phone or on Apple.com after the item has become Prepaired for Shipment.
