Amazon Gift Cards Are a Real Pain...

So the other day, I did a website usability study in Manhattan. The compensation was a $50.00 Amazon Gift Card, which didn't exactly thrill me...Here's Why: I discovered the hard way after filling my online shopping cart that items from third-party vendors like sheets, towels and wine cannot be ordered with a gift card. Amazon's call center is in India, sigh, so I had to deal with a huge language barrier...I wound up ordering some books I've been wanting to read instead.

No more Amazon Gift Cards for me--will give them as gifts next time.
