I think it depends a lot on the person doing the gifting.
On one hand, I completely get where you're coming from. Being able to get gift cards to use to apply for bigger purchases makes a lot of sense. Kind of like how every Christmas my mom gives my wife and I a dozen gift cards to different restaurants for like $10-$20 each. I mean, I appreciate it, but great, now I need to spend more money, because that $10 isn't going to get me very far at the Olive Garden. Not a perfect metaphor I suppose, but you get what I mean.
On the other hand, I think it sort of goes against the spirit of this subreddit. The point here is for people to randomly gift other people random things. It seems to me that half the fun is for gifters to look through your list, and find something that they know you want or need, and that's in their price range. And the other half of the fun is for you to see that Amazon logo on a box on your front step, and tear it open like a kid on Christmas to see what you got. How boring would this place be if the posts were all "[GIFTED] $10 to kyzen!" and "[THANKS] for $10 bro!". I have yet to gift or be gifted, but I love reading this subreddit just to see the random crap people are sending eachother.
Instead of asking people for money and risking upsetting anyone, perhaps Contest runners should state in advance if they're willing to offer up a gift card.
Or, better yet, just follow the rules - and put the item you want on your wishlist.
So why won't this work?
Select an option like Amazon.com Gift Cards - In a Gift Box
or Amazon.com Gift Cards - In a Greeting Card
And then when I go through all the way to the final screen: "Review your order", there's a spot that says "Gift cards & promotional codes" where I can enter a code, even though I already selected a credit card/bank card on the previous screen..
So what happens if I enter a code I got from Perk there, it won't work? Or if I didn't have the proper Perk code amount I wanted, couldn't I just email an electronic gift card to myself from my accumulated Amazon gift card balance from Perk, then enter that code into the "Gift cards & promotional codes" section?
I would think that would work, but everyone else is saying no.
