So, I received an apple gift card for graduation from college. It was $500 and I wanted to use to buy an iPad.

The person at the apple store said I was not allowed to use a gift card to pay for more than %50 of an iPad.

My question is...WHY? They got their money when someone purchased the gift card, what does it matter?

I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this issue, or knows why this is apple's policy. It just doesn't seem to make sense to me.
