I have a question to which I don't see an answer to in the FAQ (there's a good chance I just missed it), so I wanted to ask the community.

I have a $25 giftcard to AMC Movie Theaters that I'm not going to use, and wanted to know if I could post it in the forums to trade for credits or a book deal.

Is this a legal move here?  I don't want to do anything against policy.

If it's allowable, where would I post it?

Thanks for any help and advice!!!

Do you know that there are a ton of websites where you can sell gift cards you're not going to use? These are the two I'm familiar with:

when people are selling credits they sometimes say that they would accept a gift card.  Some mention amazon gift cards.  Havent seen anyone mention movie gift cards (but I dont follow it that closely).  You could post/look in the bazaar & see.

Members sell their credits in the book bazaar for cash, gift cards, etc. You will need to see if another member is willing to take your form of currency (the gift card).

What Rebecca said. You cannot "trade" anything but books for credits. You can however buy credits and use a gift card currency to pay for it. This can only be done in the Book Bazaar forum, there is a red sticky thread at the top of it that has some rules and tips on posting in there.
