Can you pay for things at Best Buy online with a gift card?

I didn't see the option for it, and its greatly disappointing since I can't find this certain item at any store.

Thanks!

No. The back of the card says so.

Man how stupid.
Anyone know if it works for phone orders?

P.S. I don't have the card yet - otherwise I would hopefully be able to read it, assuming I'm literate.

BestBuy Giftcards are managed by AmericanExpress Stored Value systems. Perhaps they (Amex) have not allowed BestBuy to connect their system with their website or BestBuy doesn't want to go through the trouble in connecting them together. (Based on some of their past experiences, I'm not sure I'd want to see the hassle that trying to get money credited back to a Giftcard with their online unit would entail!)

As far as phone order, I believe the card is valid only in-store.
