ebay Gift card -> other store credit

I was able to score the ~25% off ebay gift cards from Target last month and decided it was finally time to use it. I was under the impression I could use the ebay giftcards to purchase Nintendo Account credit (ie: eshop) but to my horror, ebay revoked the ability to use ebay gift cards on other store gift cards in 2016.

My goal is to purchase digital versions of Nintendo Switch games with ebay gift cards. Unfortunately, it seems there aren't very many digital versions of games available on ebay for the Switch. It seems right now my best bet is to:

1) Purchase "stuff" on ebay for stores that sell digital versions of the products I'm looking for
2) Receive those items in the mail
3) Return products to B&M for Store Credit

For step 1 it seems Bestbuy and Target have ebay "storefronts" so I think I can use one of them.

I'm concerned about step 3 as I can't find clear-cut return policies for the BBY Storefront. Target has a much more generous return policy which actually surprised me: "Most purchases can be returned to a U.S. Target store, just bring in your item and the packing slip that came with it to the Guest Service Desk for a refund or exchange. All Paypal purchased items that are returned to a Target store will be refunded to cash."

Anyone have any thoughts or feedback before I attempt this? It seems an ebay giftcard is a form of Paypal credit, so I think Target is the way to go here.
