I saved up $2,062 on an Apple gift card and could not buy an iPad with it because they make the money tied to a credit card. How can I purchase an iPad with this gift card? What do I do? It's my only money devoted exclusively to Apple products.
I'd sell it for $2,000. Nothing less. I'd even pay for shipping.I'll give you $1500 for the gift card right Now!! Lol!! This is just absolutely ridiculous that apple will not take they're own gift card for one of their products! I agree with the other poster who mentioned them charging a dollar on your card to get you in the "system" and then let you use the gift card! Has anyone read apples gift cards terms and conditions? I had a gift card one time and I'm not remembering who it was for but clearly in the terms and conditions it stated that it may be used to purchase any item in their store at any location and online. This may or may not be in their terms and conditions but it's a thought to check though!

Not that it helps the original poster, but you don't need a US card. International is fine.Intelligent solution? Not per se. You could overpay to buy one used.
To buy a new iPad, you need to pay for at least 51% of the purchase price using a U.S. credit or debit card with your name on it.
Yes, I think quite a few people would be interested in that. Put an ad on your local Craigslist and surely someone will be willing to do that. Just use common sense and be carefulGo to an Apple Store
Look for people willing to buy a new MBP or iMac
Offer them the following:
I pay for your Mac with my GiftCard
You pay my iPad with you Credit Card
Or something in that way?
If he puts 99% on a gift card all that is left over is 1% not half.See if the Apple Store will allow you to use the gift card for say 99% of the transaction and your debit/credit card for the other half.
