Bestbuy has these Steam cards.

These work just like regular gift cards for Steam correct? Just throw in code and bam 20 bucks in Steam?

Not sure why you would buy these instead of just paying directly on steam...

Yeah, that's exactly what they are. A redeemable code that puts money into your steam wallet. You can get them at Gamestop, too. The reason they exist is for people who either don't have a credit/debit card, or just don't want to use it online for whatever reason. You can buy those cards with cash, to get games off steam.

I don't know maybe because it is essentially a gift card.
