so, not a scam, but since some cards do say they can't be transferred, i do wonder about the legality. though i've always found it odd when a gift card says it can't be transferred, since that's really what a gift card is ... me giving something to someone else.
anyhoo, looks interesting, but also looks like too much work for me. i'm much more likely to just regift a gift card for a store i don't use.
