Gift cards. Use your bitcoins at hundreds of major stores and restaurants.

If you have bitcoins and want to buy something from most stores in the US, online gift cards make this possible. You can buy a gift card at eGifter (http://www.egifter.com) or Gyft (http://www.gyft.com) and usually get “points” toward future gift card purchases of around 2-3%. After you purchase your gift card with bitcoins you can go to the store and when you go to pay just redeem the card and it will show you a bar code which the cashier can scan for payment. EGifter allows you to purchase in $5 increments while Gyft is usually around $25 increments. EGifter is how I pay for things on eBay with bitcoins. I find what I want, order it, then go on eGifter to get an eBay card. This gives me a voucher code that I copy and paste into the eBay payment. The cost goes to $0 but you are still required to login to your paypal account to pay the “$0” payment.

Gift cards are a great go between from current payment methods to the time when retailers accept bitcoin directly. Most major companies have gift cards and they do not care if you paid for that gift card with bitcoins, dollars, euros, or whichever. It is all the same to them. It just allows more people to use bitcoin as their main currency. And eventually the businesses will realize the benefit of a zero fee value transfer system and start accepting them directly. Especially if most of their customers are already paying indirectly through gift cards.

A friend of mine who travels to the US realized that even if he could not get a gift card that he wanted through these sites, he could buy a Target gift card where they sell gift cards. Some people even pay for their gas by buying Shell gas cards at GameStop.
