Note that there is a service fee of $3.95 per gift card.
This is also valid for Amazon.com gift cards, maximum value per gift card allowed seems to be $300. So you would be paying $273.55 for a $300 value gift card. That works out to be a net discount of about 8.8%
The checkout process got bumpy while adding the gift card to the card and registering new account but glad that I was able to complete the purchase. Thanks OP! btw people, check your Spam folder. Gmail sent the order confirmation to its spam folder.

Its a decent deal. plus 1 percent back or points from your credit card company. What am I going to do with a $300 Amazon gift card? I know. I just bought 300 bucks of stuff from AMZ and probably won't need to for another 3 yrs.

EDIT - It is back up.
It's having trouble with all the traffic. It took my several tries because I kept getting the error. When I was the end of the checkout and confirming my order, it took about a minute of refreshes before it finally went through. Just keep trying.
This is only a good deal if you are going to use the card immediately. Buying $600 worth of gift cards to save 8 percent only makes sense if you are going to cash it in, not save it for two years. I don't do enough business with Amazon to justify it. Maybe $100, but you are talking about $6 discount .. whoop de doo.
I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon, pretty much things you usually purchase from the groceries. - Toilet paper, paper towel, air purifier filter, pur water filter, vitamins, lotions, breakfast bar/power bar, potato chips, detergents, movie rentals, etc.
I agree it is scam. It's not fraud probably, but I feel their business model is simply take orders, charge the customer and then try to acquire the goods via whatever channels they have. If they manage to do it, they will deliver but if they can't turn enough profit they will sit on the customer's money until they find a good deal.
You can and probably should contact BBB although that is unlikely to help much. I think the best bet is disputing the transaction. It is not unusual to request a signed (and possibly notarized) form in such cases if they claim they have shipped out and you claim you haven't received but if I had to do one, I would rather send it to the bank and not to these guys.
