New Account Type: Gift Card

I would suggest another Bank Account Type called Gift Card. Sometimes I have a gift card balance at Amazon, or a store gift card, and I'd like to categorize the individual purchases and track the gift card balance. I am able to do this with a manual account but it's a bit confusing to choose "Checking" as the Account type when creating the account.

    It would probably also be nice to have an account type for Cash! I use a "checking account" to track my cash spending the same way. I'd even 'file' gift cards under Cash, it makes more sense than to file them under Checking Account.

    I like this idea, and voted accordingly.  The CASH account type suggested by @EL1234 would be even more beneficial though!

    I set up all non bank accounts, such as cash or gift cards, as "Other Banking" accounts and it is working well for me.

     "other Banking" works in most cases for me.
