Inefficiency in the System

Posted in General at 12:15 pm by Ian

I was looking over the rules for what you can buy with Borders Gift Cards at Amazon (which is magically affiliated in some manner), and came across the following two, rather foolish rules:

  • Borders Gift Cards cannot be used for the purchase of Amazon.com gift certificates.

and

  • Returns of merchandise purchased with a Borders Gift Card will be credited in the form of an Amazon.com e-mail gift certificate.

So, in other words, they can, you just have to be willing to pay for shipping of something, and wait a few weeks. 🙄

I’m sure that makes sense to someone in an expensive suit somewhere.
