is it permissible to purchase a gift card at a discount from its recipient or is the transaction prohibited as Avak Ribbis?

Answer:

This is permitted. A gift card has actual value (it is not merely a promissory note or document of debt), and it is therefore permitted to sell it for any price.

Best wishes.
