My company uses gift cards for employee incentives on a yearly basis. And I will tell you that when you buy in bulk as a company, the $25 GCs (Visa or Amex) are really pennies, not dollars in cost.
And since Simon has this set up for companies, I imagine that they do a pretty good business in legitimate GC business.
(and I haven't heard of anyone complaining about getting one )
