Doubtful, they usually tend to have clauses in all the fine print that they can't be used to buy other gift cards and what not. American Express may be different, but I doubt it.

Also, why would not be able to use a pre paid card directly? They're designed to be used just as regular credit cards for the most part.

Heck, I have one tied to my Paypal account so my bank transfers go through immediately *laughs*

You can confirm it yourself, just use it on Gamefly, if it works, it works, if not, you get nothing. Either it goes through or it doesn't.

You're not getting this, it is impossible to waste the money on the card. Either it approves when you try and use it, or it declines entirely. So either it works, or it doesn't. You either get the Gamefly stuff, or you don't. Simple as that.

I read your post just fine, thank you.

You seem to be under the impression that your card can be charged for something and then the gift card you buy with it won't work or something.
