I bought this gift card, so I could use it right away, sent it to my email and within 5-10 minutes was using it. Very easy and quick. I have purchased e-gift cards many times, without any problems at all. I also buy e-gift cards and send them to family, friends etc... for b-days. As it is not safe to send gift cards in birthday cards etc... anymore. I have never had an issue when using this method and would highly recommend officialreseller.com to buy cards.
