Best Buy Makes Sure Gift Card Arrives Safely, Sends It Packed In Air Cushions

The gift card arrived safely.

The gift card arrived safely.

Kevin took advantage of a totally amazing Best Buy deal where he could buy a $100 iTunes gift card for only $80. The card came in the regular old mail instead of being virtual, though, and Kevin assumed that it would arrive in some sort of envelope. What with it being a small, flat object and all. But no! Instead, Best Buy sent it along in a cardboard box filled with air pillows.

“Lo and behold, a dented box shows up at my doorstep a week and a half later filled with four air packs and a gift card,” Kevin writes. “To their credit, the shipping guys at least chose a box labeled ‘Little Box,’ and not something bigger. I guess that’s progress?”

Is it?

At least those air cushions and the thick corrugated cardboard box protected the package from shipping damage. It could have been dented or something.
