And speaking about gift cards…….yikes

last month

We decided to keep a $150 gift card that I purchased for a gift for ourselves. It is a Visa Vanilla.

I bought it in August. We went out to dinner and it was declined.

We thought maybe it had to be activated.

Long story short, the entire amount was spent at a Target in Arlington VA in September. So, a month after the purchase.

I am most perturbed how difficult it was to talk to someone. Luckily I had the CVS receipt as front and back of card the receipt needed to be sent for refund.

I'm guessing store gift cards are the same.

Kind of puts a damper on what to buy.

I am so curious as to how this happens.

Was it the clerk at the CVS? It would have to be when the card was loaded.
