Is this accurate? (Borders question)

I live in Canada and I received a 505 for Christmas from my husband. Obviously we can't buy books from the Connect store from here. My parents are currently in Florida (St. Petersburg) and my Mom went to Borders today to try to get some Connect gift cards for me. She was told by the employee that the cards are only available online. The employee confirmed this with her manager. Is this true?

I was in Borders on Sunday and I could swear I saw Sony gift cards in the locked display with the Sony PRS 505s.....

I was at a Boarders here in Northern Virginia today and they did have them in stock.

Thanks, AnemicOak. I had read that thread previously but I was wondering if something might have changed and if the Connect cards were no longer available in Borders stores and only online.

I am very disappointed as I was really hoping that my parents would be able to get me some cards so that I could continue to purchase books.

Will they let you use their address for your credit card? 'Cause that would work.

They don't actually live in Florida, they are just on vacation for a couple of weeks.

You could have them pick up some gift cards for you from SonyStyle.
