My husband got several B&N gift cards for Christmas. Generally, I just put them on his account so he can use them for Nook books. This time, he says he might also want to buy some DTBs. If I put them all on his account, can he use them at the store for paper books, or does he need to hold onto the physical cards (and not have them on his account)?
The cards can still be used in stores. I would also advise you to hold onto the cards even after putting them on your account. There have been some instances where something happened to the web site and the gift cards no longer showed up. The easiest way to get them back on or to make sure you still have their value is to keep the cards until they are drained.
