When I deposited on Bodog I don't think I was given a fee when I paid through a gift card, in fact bodog gives a 10% deposit bonus right off the bat. Just be careful of the gift card you buy, you should contact bodog support to make sure you get the right one. It can't be one of those vanilla gift cards, it's got to be one of the international visa ones I think.

THe 'fee' on GiftCards is pretty small - only around $5 on a $100 card (that's pretty decent imo). Couple years ago I made deposits using epassporte and ended up costing me alot more than that.
5% seems pretty cheap. There's guys in my area who will pay 20cents on the dollar to purchase money on poker sites.

Walgreens has these cards called gift2go cards, they come in smaller increments but they do work, that's what I used to deposit on dog.

re: Poker & bodog poker deposit
General question... Last time I deposited anywhere was maybe 2 years ago, and I have enough of a BR for my needs everywhere I play. But if I recall, he only places I've ever deposted on was Full Tilt and Bodog, and was able to use my Visa or Mastercard (cashing out is a different story of course). Has this changed? No credit cards?
