Best Buy Gift Card doubles as speaker

Okay, so we told you about a Target gift card yesterday that doubles as a digital camera. And it was pretty cool. You could take a picture of the recipient when they receive it and it's a pretty cute idea. But now Best Buy is offering up a gift card that doubles as a speaker!

The gift card is a mini speaker that sports a 3.5mm jack. It can be connected to just about any music player, including the iPod, and will play your tunes on the spot. Okay, so the sound quality has got to be pretty poor, but it's still a fun idea.

This special speaker gift card is available to those that want a card worth $50 or more. If you order online, free shipping will also be included. Not too shabby. Though I can't help but wonder what the point of it all is. I mean, when else are you going to use a mini-speaker gift card than when buying something with it or during that first five minutes of listening to a flat, raspy song through it before the novelty wears out?
