    I got a 36.xx$ Visa gift card that I need to spend on something. Well, it was for 50$ but then I bought a case for my iPhone. There is no music/DVD's that I want, or don't have currently. No apps for iPhone either. I already have a 80$ BestBuy gift card so no video games or anything. No clothes.


    Any thoughts?

    I'm 14, don't think any alcohol or tobacco would work. I was kinda in the mood for recieving something fun and gadgety in the mail with this :rolleyes: but I guess that won't happen.

    I don't pay my cell phone bill.

    Put it towards a iphone alarm clock. I'm eyeing the Sony and Logitech units that now work with the 3g.

    If it doesn't expire, I'd keep it until you see something that catches your eye. $36... You could just go see some movies like firestarter suggested... Browse thinkgeek for something, buy something you've always wanted but never really wanted to spend money on. Save it for a tank of gas when you get a car :p

    Buy an itunes giftcard with it and just have that for when some new music catches your eye :] Or a best buy gift card and tack that on to your current $80.

    The LED umbrella is something that I've always wanted but it would be too weird to carry it with you.

    How about a backup battery for your iPod touch or other MP3 device? You can get a good one with lithium batteries that will extend your playing time by 15 hours or longer. I got the APC Mobile Power Pack for $14 on sale at Fry's Electronics, and they also have them at low cost on Amazon. Its wonderful to have this backup when you are away and can't get to an electrical outlet or USB for a recharge.

    I'm 14. All I do is go to school and come back home. Plus, I don't really need to listen to music every second of my 5 minute WALKING trip back home. :D I already ordered the Orange Box, and yeh. Hopefully it'll be here soon.



    Thanks everybody.

    Save it until you find something to buy.

    Why waste it?
