Why are ebay gift cards overprice?

shalimarshalima 10 January 27, 2009 at 02:57 PM
It baffles me everytime I look. Amazon, itunes, best buy, etc gift cards are sold over their card value.

Does anybody know why?

It cant be from Live's Cashback because that does apply to credit cards and right now, it is way to low to compensate for the markups I am seeing. It also cant be from over anxious bidders buying on impulse or the "urge to win" because these bids are over the card value days before the auction ends.

Oversea factor maybe?
