Where to purchase sony ebook gift cards in chicago

Hi,
I'm not in the US and I don't have a US credit card so I need gift vouchers to buy books for my sony reader. (grumble grumble grrrrrr..... )

A friend is travelling to Chicago in a weeks time and can buy some cards for me if I can tell her where to go and what to get.

Do Borders bookshops still sell them? Their website only refers to a regular Borders gift card which I'm afraid won't work on the sony site / reader software.

Do regular Sony stores sell them?



G.

Or you could ask one of the friendly members to buy them for you and you pay them with paypal. That is how I did it
Pilotbob or Alphapheemail were ready to help me out (just keep in mind that you have to pay a bit more than the value as paypal keeps some of the money...)

cheers,
kaas

Yes, I think Borders sells them. Make sure to get the Sony connect store gift cards and not the Borders gift cards.
