This is a relative new user with only 79 feedback.
Seems legit though as all the feedback is from TH gcs recently.

Pretty good deal if legit. Thats a lot of ice cap for this summer. Aside from the petro gas cards seller, ive never had the nerve to try on any other gift cards from any other sellers

I took the plunge on the $100 GC and submitted a Best Offer. Beware that there is a 5% sales tax added that I wasn't aware of. So i really only saved $9 after shipping and tax.

Lets hope this is not a scam, but that is what Paypal is for.

I've never paid tax on a gift card. That's unusual. Still not a bad deal, you've saved 9% I guess.

That's illegal. There is no tax on gift certificates.

Pursuant to section 181.2 of the Excise Tax Act (Canada) (the "GST/HST Legislation), the issuance or sale of a gift certificate for consideration (e.g., money) shall be deemed not to be a supply and, when given as consideration for a supply of property or a service, the gift certificate shall be deemed to be money.

I bought one of these a month ago and it was a physical card. It arrived and worked fine. However I noticed that the history on the card was a bit odd. It was purchased for with a $2 balance and then loaded up with a $98 balance afterwards. Makes me wonder if the $98 didn't come from a legitamte source...
