Tried to use a $10 gift card at the Sonic Drive-in in Murrieta, CA for a $14.70 purchase. I tried to pay with the $10 gift card and a $5 bill. The clerk said she could not take two forms of payment for the transaction otherwise her draw would show as short. She told me my option was to pay with cash for the entire purchase, but I decided in order to use the gift card, I would remove some items from my order so that the entire purchase did not exceed $10. I still have just under $1 on the gift card. The clerk said she could not give the remaining balance in cash; it must go back on the gift card. The clerk said it was a company policy that came from corporate. I could not believe what she was telling me, and will investigate further! If I find that this is indeed a corporate policy, I will forward a complaint to state and federal agencies. I figure that if 100,000 individuals across the U.S. have a remaining balance of, let's say, 75 cents on their gift cards, that's $75,000 that Sonic is stealing from customers. The practice is illegal!

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!
Update: November 22, 2014
I noticed that a user named "Greg" responded to my posting. "Greg" obviously did not handle my complaint when I called Bass Pro. "Greg" also can not read. As stated, the card was given as a gift in 2012, not 2009. It had NOT even been over a year when it became invalid. "Greg" is correct in that they will re-issue a card. They will NOT however re-activate the card you have in your hand. You MUST wait for them to mail it to you. The reason I was especially disappointed with Bass Pro in my situation, was because bow hunting season was starting in September and there was some gear I wanted to purchase before the season start. By the time I received the card, it was too late. I ended up giving away the card I received in the mail (not as a gift - it was included with a real gift, with the caveat that they may have as much trouble as I had using the card).
As I stated in my posting... This is a HEADACHE! Go with Amazon, and give a gift that will be enjoyed!

Can't use the gift card
I just received a Wal Mart Visa Gift card in the amount of $25. I registered it online, and verified that it had a balance of $25. However, it was declined everywhere I tried to use it.

It would be good card if:
cashier could tell you balance left on the card
if you could find card balance on Internet.
The problem is, if you want to pay by register with remaining balance, you have to know exact amount. The cashier cannot tell you how much you have left on the card, so you cannot really use it when you want. Cashier advises you to check for remaining balance an Internet. But no matter how much time I spent on it, there is no info about A&P gift card balance. In this scenario is the best to spend all value at once. But as a single person, I don't spend as much money for one single shopping and spending $50 card value is for me quite high.
