are you able to purchase the iphone 5 with a best buy gift card or are their restrictions on that?
you can use our gift cards on ANYTHING except for buying another gift card, and as always the gift cards do not expire. This also applies to store credits as well. (yellow cards)

Don't know about Worst Buy, but last year when I bought my iPhone 4s at the Shack, I was asked to pay at least $1.00 on a credit card and use gift cards for the balance.
When I quizzed them about it, I was informed that a lot of people sign up for contracts to get the phone at a subsidized price and quit paying their bills. So, AT&T had requested them to do this to protect themselves.
A couple of years ago, when the 3Gs first dropped to 'free with a 2 year contract' people started using the loophole and eventually AT&T raised the price to $1 or less that had to be charged to a credit card.
