$25 Gift Card Giveaway

Tyler: Hello! How may I help you today?
You: I have a gift card. How do I complete the online order? There doesn't seem to be a place to enter in the information.
Tyler: Gift cards are in store only
You: I live near Seattle. How can I use the gift card?
Tyler: Sorry but thats a in store item only you can only use it in a local advance store 
You: Ridiculous.
Tyler: I am sorry you feel that way but it says when you buy it in store only 
You: It was a gift to me...hence the name: gift card.
Tyler: Well people buy them because they think they are accepted online and never read the details 
You: Perhaps you should instigate a change in the company. Every other store on the planet with gift cards accepts them for online purchases.
Tyler: Every other store just not us at this time sorry 
You: Does the value of the card ever expire?
Tyler: I dont think so it should say in the front if it does but I dont see why 
You: Okay. What states are you in?
Tyler: Sorry but there is not store in Washington at this time. At this time only in the east coast and Texas 
You: Thanks.
Tyler: Thank you for chatting with Advance Auto Parts. Join us on FaceBook!

I want you to know that I had to work for the card in question. I got it last year at the Driving School Association of the Americas conference after I participated in a focus group for Advance Auto Parts. I was cleaning my desk today, found it and decided to go online and finally use it. How was I supposed to know its limitations? 
This is what I wanted. It's only $14.99. But with $8.66 for shipping, it quickly ate up the card's value. HmphI didn't really want to organize my car anyway.
