Ever Bought Discounted Gift Cards?

Ashley Grimaldo has agreed to live on discounted gift cards for the month of March. To me, that’s a challenging proposition, given that you have to spend quite a bit of money up front and attempt to live on it the remainder of the month. However, I do like the idea of buying a $50.00 gas card for $45 or so.

Anyone ever had experience buying discounted gift cards to spend on regular purchases later?
