What gets me, is that in addition to weak deals, gift cars is not available when picking up the bought item. So if somebody buys 10.5 iPad Pro, they cannot use that gift card to buy lets say pencil, cover or other accessory in the store. They have to wait 24hrs and then they can use that card in physical store or online.
