Apple gift cards can't be used to purchase iPhones either

TheĀ  other day I informed you that Apple was no longer accepting cash for their iPhones. I wish this were one of those time where I was retracting that statement, however, I only have worse news to bring.

In addition to not accepting cash, they will also not accept gift cards. I guess it would only make sense, as you could use cash to buy the gift cards. It's really a bit disturbing when a company won't even take their own gift cards in exchange for a product.

I really hope that Apple reconsiders their stance on this. I know several people that don't have any credit or debit cards. There's nothing wrong with just wanting to use cash, so is it really worth alienating those customers?
