Lifeexperiences hasnít sent a promo email out since May. Also no updates to social media. Must be going out of business.

Is it possible to use a gift card for a fully prepaid rate? Either at the time of booking or getting to reimbursed and using the gift card at the time of checkout?

Not at time of booking, that I'm aware of, but the hotel will refund your deposit to you upon checkout in order to apply a gift card. I don't do a lot of prepaid rates, but I've never been told they wouldn't on any stay where I asked.

you may want to call in to check on this one. Iím only aware of deposit return and paying by gift card at checkout, not prepaid.

What is the difference between a "deposit" and "prepaid"? Isn't a prepaid booking just a deposit that happens to be for 100% of the cost of the stay? If so, then you can still have that refunded. A good example is the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, who at least during ski season, even when paying the full Daily Rate, requires the booking to be paid in full a few weeks before arrival. They have always refunded that "deposit" or "prepayment" at checkout so I could pay by gift card.

Iíve only personally done it with Ďdeposití so unsure on the prepaid. If youíve had success getting refund with prepaid then I guess it works on that too, but I still suggest to call in to confirm.
