Was shopping for a Christmas gift for my wife at the mall. I bought a Gift Card, then walked out of the store into a jewelry store. Decided on a gift at the jewelry, and went to return the gift card at WHBM. They said they couldn't do that, even with the receipt and the original card. They pointed me to their policy, called the "No Hassle 60 day return Policy" (yeah, right), which states that git cards cannot be redeemed for cash. I told them I am not returning for cash, but credit on the credit card I just used for purchasing the gift card. This policy, which isn't on the receipt or in the store, is only on the back of the gift card (which they wrap and NEVER present to you to read first). I have never seen a store use such unethical practices.

Card becomes "Dormant"
My brother gave me a Bass Pro Gift Card for my birthday in October of 2012. I tried to use it on August 1, 2013, and it would not work. I called the 24 hour customer service, and they said it went "dormant" because it is an old card. The back of the card states its good for 2 years. The customer service said that I would have to call during business hours to try to do anything....So much for 24 hour customer service. This is not a gift, it's a headache. PLEASE do not give a loved one a headache for a gift. Give an Amazon card instead!

Steal scam card
When my son first tried to use the $50 card it said there was a zero balance (embarrassing to him). Then he checked online and there was a balance but it was less than $50. He tried to use it a couple of more times and they said it was 0. I called (now after a year) and it has a balance of 33.08 .... still haven't been able to use it! Called the joke of a number for walmartgift.com and sorry you need to use it online.... where it won't work!!!!!!!! NEVER BUY A GIFT CARD FOR ANYONE FROM WALMART!!! Lesson learned!!
