Nexus 5 - $100 Gift Card


Hey there. I am wanting to get the Nexus 5 with the $100.gift card. Can someone tell me where this.gift card is from or can be used? I see bestbuy had the same offer, but this week they have changed it to some bluetooth speaker. I was hoping to get the $100 bestbuy.gift card and use it towards a new monitor as well. Anyone have any ideas? Im in Red Deer Alberta. Thanks

If you buy from a Koodo shop, it's a prepaid card (not a prepaid [b]credit card ;)) that can be used anywhere that accepts MasterCard (or VISA, depending on which one they give you.) If you buy from Best Buy, it's a Best Buy.gift card, and can only be used at Best Buy. Walmart > Walmart.gift Card The Mobile Shop > PC.gift Card

What's a visa? And what's a Mastercard? They are both credit cards and thus they would be prepaid credit cards ones a prepaid visa and the other is a prepaid Mastercard, they are both prepaid credit cards just not reloadable ones so I don't know why you have a problem with my answer.

LOL MasterCard and VISA are not credit cards. It's because most of their business is in credit cards, people say VISA rather than "VISA Credit" (look, there is VISA Debit!). Here are a few examples of how they are not called [b]credit cards: The Scotiabank®️ Prepaid Reloadable VISA* is a card that lets you... Use Canada Post prepaid reloadable Visa card, prepaid Visa.gift card, mobile top-ups and long-distance minutes. [b]Are RBC Visa.gift Cards credit cards? While they look like credit cards, RBC Visa.gift Cards are actually prepaid/stored value cards. Or you can simply go to VISA and MasterCard's websites and see which cards are actually called credit cards, and which are not: http://www.visa.ca/en/personal/prepaidcards/index.jsp http://www.mastercard.ca/prepaid-card.html There you go. They are not prepaid [b]credit cards, they are just prepaid cards. Also, prepaid and credit are two words that are like antonyms of each other.

Hi Brian, the.gift cards are usually used at the retailer discretion most of which opt for the preaid visa's or mastercard's but multi carrier outlets like best buy, walmart, mobile shops, etc... will use their own stores.gift cards and some some retailers will offer you an in store credit with the.gift cards. So I guess the best answer to your question would be that it all depends on where you get the phone. Hope this helps. 🙂
