If you do consider making a gift card deal purchase, please make sure to read the full terms. Many of the promotional perks mentioned have to be used by a certain date time frame (typically the first few months of 2015) and/or other terms.
Update: After posting I realized that Amazon is doing Gift Card deals as well part of 12 days of Christmas. It runs similar to lighting deals, so more gift card deals will be posted so keep an eye out on those!
