So I just recently received a bunch of amazon gift cards for Christmas. I have family that will be in town until just past New Year's. In the past they have given us department store gift cards and we then go to the mall and pick out whatever it is we want. We do this while they are here so they can see what it is that we chose with their cards. Our pool is being installed late march early April. Should be completed by Mid to late June. I was planning on using the gift cards to get various items for the pool including the Taylor k 2006 kit. Question is would it be premature to purchase the kit now with the gift cards? I doubt they would go bad by summer 2016, or am I wrong?
