    I really don't want to get out of my house and go there, and they seem to have crappy "sales" online. I don't want to spend much more than $25.

    $25 steam gift card. Then never go back to Gamestop again.

    If they will allow this... yes, definitely.

    Yes they will. I had some things to turn in a month ago. I've been putting it off for years. I got $25 total and I bought League of Legends gift cards. I was like "Yeah, never giving Gamestop another dime!" Then I owed about $3 in sales tax. I was like "FFFFUUUUUUU" Never going to the store ever again.

    I assumed they wouldn't let you do it

    They will. Most stores should allow you to use a gift card to buy any other gift card except Visa. For example if you have a Walmart Gift Card you can also use that to purchase LoL gift cards (which I did at Christmas time), but not the prepaid Visa cards. Reason is they want you to keep the money in the store and not buy a Visa card to spend somewhere else.

    Thats interesting, the few times I have bought Riot cards they have been tax exempt.

    I'm going to go try it out now.

    I'll be pissed if they charge me sales tax on a gift card.

    The ones I bought in Walmart at Christmas were tax exempt I just realized. I had a $20 gift card and bought 2 $10 Riot Points and was done. I don't know all the tax laws. I do 99% of my shopping on base which has no taxes.

    So here's the scam:

    They only offer $20 and $50 steam credits

    I got the 20 and picked up Rage for the 360 for 10. If it sucks, who cares... paid $5 for it.
