Why can't I use my gift card to get premium?

I have a gift card, and wanted to use it to purchase a month of premium, but it says it’s invalid.
If I try to buy material (wood and stuff) it’s good.
Why can’t I use it for purchasing premium?

Thank you for asking!

I’m afraid that we accept all major credit cards, but can’t accept Glowforge Gift cards for subscription payments.

The Glowforge gift cards are connected directly to the Glowforge Shop for purchases there. For your security, the credit card info you provide for subscription payments is stored separately, and we don’t currently have a way to bridge those two systems.

I can see how that would be really helpful, so I’ll share your idea with the product team as they plan future improvements.

I’m going to close this thread - if you have any other questions, please go ahead and post a new topic.
