Default Gift card dilemma

Hello uk peeps.

Had a nightmare trying to locate gift cards at all the usual outlets yesterday, Traveled to the next town and still no joy.

Is it just me thatís having no luck?

Cheers.

Just you I'll guess......

Not that I use gift card these days but they're everywhere on line, I'm not trailing out on a Sunday for a bunch that's for sure, particularly as I'm trying to juggle the Grand Prix, the cricket final and Wimbledon.

They are getting harder to find. Tesco and Morrisons have stopped stocking them. Try W H Smith and Wilko. The last one I bought was from Smiths and when I was in Wilko last week, they had some too.

I'm going to give W H Smith a try, all the others had nothing.

@Dezrfc I do/will, but i liked the cards.

If I do add a gift card, I use up the card balance paying for shipping. When it runs out, there is usually some released funds in paypal to use. I like to mix up the different ways of account creation so as to look different. I know that they know it's a pre-paid card so it really doesn't make your account stronger. In my opinion, a real card SHOULD make it stronger, but who can say 100% that it does?

where do you sell?
Ebay also sells gift cards,and there is no fee.
If payment is withheld in your Paypal account by EBAY(not Paypal),you can call Ebay and ask them to release some money to pay shipping.
I know in USA,it will release x dollars for domestic orders and more for intl orders.
If it is Paypal hold,then nothing you can do
