I don't know if it's okay to ask for this kind of help but this is my wish for the month. I have several $20 Barnes & Noble gift certificates that I had my family buy for me when it was a deal on Groupon. Anyway, I got pretty busy preparing for wedding and other usual everyday concerns that I haven't been able to use up all of them. I was really hoping I could find a few people who might be interested in buying these GCs from me so that the value doesn't "go to waste". The $20 value expires on April 10. After April 10, the value goes down to $10, except where prohibited (I'm not sure what this means. i think it may pertain to states where GCs don't expire.) This means, you will need to use the GC before April 10 to be able to use all $20 value. If anyone at all is willing to help me out, please PM me and I can give you my paypal email address to send the money to. Barnes has a lot of bargain books and until today, March 6th, Kids and Teens books are Buy 1, get 2nd 50%. If you're already a member, you get free shipping. The GC covers tax, too, for as long as the total is within $20. Thank you so much for your time and I really hope I can get some help! :) It's my wedding wish! :)

I see that you live in California. According to California law, gift cards cannot expire or go down in value due to nonusage. If those cards do go down in value, I would complain (loudly) to groupon or B&N.
