Is it safe to buy psn cards at non-videogame stores?

I just never bought them at non-videogame stores like 7/11, Ralph's, etc because....well I thought it was more safe to buy them at a video game store. Then again, I bought a 20 dollar Steam card at best buy that worked, so...

I know, it's kinda of a dumb question.

Not a dumb question.

Think about the actual stores themselves. Do they have good return policies if the cards are bad? Do they have a good reputation?

I wouldn't get one from Walmart, for example.

Best Buy is known for electronics and games so they're trusted quality wise. Target is good too.

They're all PSN cards. Why would they be 'unsafe'? lol!!

Anywhere that keeps the cards sealed behind the counter or activates them at the register is probably safe.
Everyday's great at your Junes!

If it's a store that:

A) You've heard of


B) Has been around for longer than a week

It's fine.

There's not really any way they can be unsafe, unless stores exist where the cards are already activated and just sitting there on display.
