Gift Cards Revisited

Posted in Rants with tags on February 15, 2009 by aliciamureaux

So I blew it.  I didn’t follow my own advice, sort of.  I purchased a gift card at another store without checking to see if buy with store card option was available first.  The notecard included said items will be delivered anywhere from 2 to 5 days.  I can but items online in the real world and have them arrive quicker.  This was another large and very popular store.  I immediately sent the card back to the owner with a note asking to have my money returned.  It is now closing in on 24 hours since I sent it back.  I’ll update to let you know how long it took.  I’m through with gift cards now.  I’m thinking of including the text of the note included with the card since I find it the most restrictive and difficult to use I’ve run across to date.  Again, nothing at the kiosk explaining how the gift card system works.
