Default FS: $25 Hobbytown USA Gift Card

Will TRADE!

Need a fail safe, RX packs, nitro rustler aluminum steering bell cranks.

I have a $25 Hobbytown USA gift card. Just called stores nationwide to see if it will work, and sure enough, it will. I'll sell it for $20 shipped to you OBO. Thanks.

28.00? Just kidding. This makes no sense. Please explain. Why wouldn't I keep my 25 dollars and go use it at Hobbytown?

Who knows? Sigh... I wasn't going to question you. If you wanted it for $28, I won't say no!

i just called my friend who is the manager of my local hobbytown and he said that hobbytown stores are locally owned and that a gift card outside of the owners franchise would be worthless.

I called 5 stores nationwide, read them the long gift card number on the back (blurred in the picture) and all have confirmed there is $25 on the card. What's the number to your friend's store? I'll call to see if they see it as valid.

I think this should be stickied. It really made my night.

it might be a valid card, but did you ask if they would honor it as a method of payment? i'm not saying that you're trying to scam anyone, but i'm good friends with the local manager and he said he didn't think it was valid if purchased outside of the owner's franchise.

he said he'd call the owner tomorrow.

Yes sir.. Here's how the conversation went (condensed):

Me: Hi, I have a gift card that I got from a friend who lives out of state. I was wondering if it could be used at your store...
Store: What's the gift card number?
Me: (reads gift card number)
Store: I see it has $25 on it.
Me: So I can use it?
Store: Sure can.

This is what I said to stores throughout the US. But I'll be more than happy to contact whatever store, prior to anyone making a purchase, to ensure it works there.

Everyone should be happy now!
