Using a Border's gift card

I received a Border's gift card. Does anyone know if that can be used at the Sony reader store, since Border's doesn't have any e-books.

No, it won't work at the Sony reader store.

I'd note most gift cards won't work for ebooks, period.

I'm glad you asked! I've been wondering the same thing, as I have a Border's gift card taking up space in my wallet. Bummer they don't.

But you can use the Borders Gift Card to buy a Sony Reader gift card and then use that to buy books at the Sony store. The Sony Reader gift cards come in $25 and $50 cards.

I'd didn't see those at the store. Of course, I wasn't really looking. My gift card isn't that much though, but enough to buy one ebook maybe. But, thanks! I'll keep that in mind!

I had a few of these I got for Christmas; I sold them on ebay, then used the money to buy ebooks!

You're quite welcome. Glad to be of help. I've been to a few Borders stores and the gift cards are usually under the display of the demo readers. To be safe I'd call in advance to make sure they have them for when you go. They seem to run out when they give our their Border Bucks rewards coupons.
