Default Re: $530 BestBuy Gift Card any suggestions?

hmm... for that money you could have a nice 32" 720p tv. Then talk your parents into the receiver, speakers, and dvd player (blu-ray basically won).

I wouldn't get the xbox for the HD DVD because its not going anywhere.

Hmm.....I don't know about that, but it should say on the back of the card when it expires, or you can call the number on the back and it should tell you.
