Best Buy Gift Card Glitch [TOP]
Late last night, Best Buy posted what seemed like the greatest Black Friday in July deal ever: a $200 gift card for only $15. This was an obvious pricing error, but humans are humans, and people were willing to put up with an Isaac Mizrahi-designed floral gift card if it meant that they would get $185 in free money. Fortunately for Best Buy, they corrected the pricing error after only a few hours. [More]

We were surprised, last week, to hear about a Best Buy customer who ordered one iPad, then received a box of five. It was even more surprising when we heard from another customer who had the same problem. We keep hearing from more people who have received iPacks instead of iPads. One of them was Eric, who took them back to the local Best Buy and received a $50 iTunes gift card for his trouble. He was surprised to learn from a fellow commuter about our series of posts. Especially the part where Best Buy offered to let the other customers keep the four bonus iPads. Now he feels like a sucker. [More]
If you can't scan your gift card, you can enter the code manually. Make sure you enter the code correctly. Don't use spaces or dashes when you enter the code, and check that you input the correct letters.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) -- Macy's is promising to make good on some bad gift cards that may have ended up with some California consumers. The cards were apparently sold through third-party retailers and tampered with before being purchased.
According to consumer experts, the best way to avoid problems with a gift card is to carefully inspect the packaging before purchase. If it appears that a code on the back of the card has been scratched off, it may have been tampered with.
Although word of the gift-card glitch has appeared to disappear from the Internet, one conversation on a Facebook page devoted to Vanilla Mastercard showed people were still interested in obtaining them.
A Nordstrom gift card can be used to make in-person and online purchases at any Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack location. The card can have any amount between $10 and $500 placed onto it. Moreover, you can encounter errors when attempting to use your gift card online or in-store. This content mainly is about Nordstrom gift card error messages and how to solve them.
3. Card Not Activated: This implies that the gift card has not yet been activated. The buyer of the gift card will need to activate it if you just got one from a friend or anyone as a gift. To check if the card is active, get in touch with the buyer, or ask Nordstrom customer support for help.
If the Nordstrom gift card is active but the value has not yet been applied to your balance, you might also need to get in touch with your shop for assistance in solving your problem. The only remaining option for fixing this problem is to speak with Nordstrom customer care about a potential fix.
However, if you want to decide to sell Nordstrom gift cards in Nigeria, you can easily do so on the most reliable trading platform, NOSH. You can also know what to get when you sell your gift card for naira by using the rate calculator to determine it.
If you see a message that says that your card has not been properly activated, it might not have been activated by the retailer who sold the card. The best option is to go back to the retailer and try to resolve it with them.
For instance, I live in Pennsylvania, and every year, the regional grocery store chain Giant Eagle offers $0.20 off per gallon of gas for every $50 you spend in gift cards. They sell gift cards for hundreds of retailers, like Amazon, Best Buy, Netflix, and Hulu. So, when I bought a TV and an Apple TV on Cyber Monday, I first gifted myself $300 of Best Buy bucks and cashed in a $1.20 per gallon discount.
Disney gift cards are pretty much exactly what you think they are, little plastic cards that hold money to be spent on Disney products. Once Disney gift cards are purchased and activated there are no fees and they never expire.
The actual definition of a discounted Disney gift card is pretty easy. It is simply a Disney gift card that is purchased in such a way that the cost of the card is less than the face value of the card. For example, a $100 Disney gift card which actually costs $95.
As I mentioned above, you can use Disney gift cards to pay for any aspect of your Disney vacation. However, there are some pieces of the vacation you *might* be able to find cheaper in other ways than using discounted Disney gift cards.
Some of this simply depends on how much of a savings you are able to manage on your discounted gift cards. If you average 5-6%, odds are you can find a greater discount at places like Undercover Tourist.
But there are some great uses of discounted Disney gift cards regardless of how much of a discount you bought them at. Any purchases made during your trip when you are a captive audience fall under that heading.
One more very important thing before we get down to business. I mentioned this briefly a moment ago, but stacking deals is a very in depth and often complicated part of buying discounted Disney gift cards.
If any of the categories listed sell Disney gift cards, you can now get an additional 5% off your purchase. This opens up options for you at grocery stores or Target for an easy 5% discount in the form of earning cash back.
As an added bonus, Discover will match all of your 5% cash back earnings in the first 12 months of spending. That means if you use your Discover It card to buy your Disney gift cards during that 12 month period you actually save 10% on those cards. Score!
In previous years, the bonus quarters for Chase Freedom cardholders are gas stations, grocery stores, home improvement stores, and PayPal. These options open up grocery stores and home improvement stores as discounted gift card options.
This little section is more a discussion on how to get a little more savings towards your Disney vacation as opposed to stacking for gift cards, but sometimes these options will also give you cash back towards your gift card purchases.
Once you activate the cashback you simply shop like normal. A few times a year they send you a check for your earnings for that time period. I have a check for $114 in the mail as we speak. That money will go directly into my vacation savings account, which will then go towards buying discounted Disney gift cards.
BJs offers Disney gift cards in a number of denominations, including $25, $50, $100, $150 (3x$50), and $500. Typically, these max out at a 4% discount with the $100 and $500 gift cards as your best options.
The Kroger line of supermarkets is well known to offer 4x gas points as rewards on gift card purchases during promotions. My local ShopRite has offered deals that give me a $10 off coupon for buying $50 in gift cards.
In addition to this, Chase Offers occasionally offers an increased discount at purchases made at Staples. I currently have an offer for 20% off. You better believe I plan on buying Disney gift cards with that!
There are a couple of different ways you can use your discounted Disney gift cards during your trip. The easiest way is to use the gift cards directly at the point of sale. Simply hand over your gift card to the Cast Member and they take care of the rest.
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to attach a Disney gift card to your MagicBand. If you are a Disney resort guest you can opt to charge everything to your MagicBand first, then pay down the balance with a gift card at the front desk of your resort.
I use the discounted Disney gift cards to pay down the balance every couple of days. But if you forget, a Cast Member can easily take the charge off your card and use the gift cards instead. It just takes a little more work and time.
I highly recommend that you mark the 5 gift cards with the money on them clearly with permanent marker matching the labels you give them on the website (i.e. Dining, November Trip, Resort, etc.) and put them in a safe place.
The mysterious hacker did so by pretending the USB thumb drive was part of a $50 gift card offer from Best Buy, according to Trustwave, which obtained the letter from a company client. The letter was mailed in February, and thanks the recipient for being a long-time customer.
1. Plastic Gift Cards: In 2012, the global card industry produced 33 billion gift cards. Most of those cards are made of PVC, which poses serious environmental risks. (Read here why we should recycle our gift cards.)
But if an e-commerce site or airline makes a huge mistake, what are the chances they'll honor it? On Wednesday night, Walmart said it would cancel the orders on mispriced items, giving those customers a full refund plus a $10 e-gift card for Walmart stores or Walmart.com.
quicklist:title: Walmarttext: On Nov. 6, Walmart experienced a technical error that led to mispriced items on its website, including marking items both much higher and much lower than their retail value. Customers thought they were getting the deal of a lifetime, but the company later said it was notifying customers who ordered items with the \"wide discrepancy in pricing\" that their orders were canceled and they will be given a refund. The company told customers it will send them within five business days a $10 e-gift card for Walmart stores and Walmart.com. 041b061a72
