The $25 giftcard for $15 is cool. For Amazon I'll use the Sallie Mae card.

thats just taking it abit far IMO. i like to actually see the product i'm buying even if its just online before i buy it. Shopping blind feels really awkward, we will jus see how popular it becomes i guess.

Yes. They had an offer to get that for 149.99. I paid 199.99 for mine. That's a nice discount.

My gift card is on the way. I think this is taking the place of the rewards mall.
