Is there any way I can spend money off a HMV Gift Card bought instore to buy HD DVDs from their website.

Any help would be appreciated.

If I went instore is there any way they could swap it so I could use it online ?
o ryt, sorry i read wrong!
I asked this the other day. Apparently its because of security reasons.
'Due to legal reasons, we are unfortunately unable to accept HMV Gift Cards as payment for purchases through the web site. They can only be used in one of our High Street stores. In future, why not ask for an HMV EGift certificate which can be purchased and used through the hmv web site.'

Legal reasons lol.

I know, the 2 HD-DVDs I want online cost £4.99 each but instore they are £20 - £25 each
Why not ask if you can buy from the website in store. They might allow that.

Are you trying to get your money back off the card to spend in a different shop ?
Basically, if you've got a gift card, you have to spend it instore. They're not going to offer you an alternative.
Your best bet is to sell it at a small loss and then buy from the website, will actually save money that way! Is wrong that you have to do that though, the prices should be the same or you should be able to chose which of the 2 places you spend them

Well ideally id like to get a refund on the card and use the money somewhere else, but that doesn't seem to be an option open to anyone.

Ill prob just sell the card or buy something instore.
I was given an HMV gift card as a present, shame, if I cannot use it on their website toward the cost of a purchase and have to make a 30 mile round trip to an HMV store to use it. Most shops and stores in the UK have a mail order set up for customers who wish to shop on line. I am told that HMV do not have this facility.
I think there are sites online that you can sell giftcards on. Maybe worth selling it?
There should be no reason why you can't you can't use your hmv card online it has its own bar code act, I want two films where I have 40 quid on my card but I have to come into Worcester, I have had my card since Dec but I'm too busy at the moment and don't expect to get into there until april at least, it's stupid! Sort it out HMM!!!!!
