Was just in best buy, they redid the PC area and they now have steam gift cards in $20 $50 and $100 amounts. Could be good for those that trade a lot of games to swap credit for steam sales.

Edit: Just added picture below!

Finally!!! i was wondering how come BBY never had them before. Probably bought almost $200 worth of steam cards at gamestop already!

I like RZ points more than GS reward points so this is good news!!

Well, Best Buy, I just may pre-order games from you again after all.

Do you get RZ points for buying gift cards like that? Even better, do you get double RZ points for GCU?

YMMV. I've bought Amazon/Kindle GCs and Pre-paid Visas with RZ certs with no resistance so...

They're also at GameStop. Glad to see these becoming more popular in other stores.

Very smart thinking :) Turn a $60 pre order into a new game, pre-order goodies, and an obscene amount of cheap games during the steam sales.

If only Valve realized Canada isn't as backwards as they think and release them here. I guess it might be a bit challenging due to the different currency.

yessssss.

"Your world can end in the blink of an eye. One event, one unexpected twist of fate... and suddenly the world as you knew... is gone. Forever. All that you held dear, all that you held close... is washed away in a sea of distant memory. Life... is cruel. Of this I have no doubt. But life continues on... with, or without you. One can only hope that one leaves behind a lasting legacy. But so often, the legacies we leave behind... are not the ones we intended." -Queen Myrrah

Now we just need to see those go on sale like MSP/PSN Credit/Wii points do and you've got an actual deal here. :)

Yeah, I noticed these while I was at Best Buy earlier today. I'm psyched to see Best Buy carrying them.

This is great news.

I rack up around $250 in RZ points a year by running everything I can through my BB credit card and paying it off each month. The points had previously been used for consoles and the occasional MSRP collectors edition or what have you. I know where they are going now -- free rides through the summer and winter steam sales. Great that they came out with these in B&M stores; I scored $200 worth during the gamestop trade in promo towards them this summer with some 360 games, and still have $100 left from that as well.
