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!

Never ever buy this credit card (Vanilla Mastercard) . I purchased a $100 card last week. When I was trying to use it I found out it was not working . I contacted Mastercard and I was told the card did not get activated at the time of purchase. The company received all the info from me including : Name, Home Address , Card Number, and of course a lot more information from my receipt ( spent 40 minutes on the call) . I was later told that I need to wait for 3-5 buisiness days so that they could investigate it. After 5 days, I called them back again inquiring about the status of my card . Guess what, I was told again that the investigation might take a couple of more days.
So right now I am not sure how long I need to wait before this card gets activated if it ever gets activated.

I buy these cards mainly to pay my bills online (I dont trust putting my bank card info out there)Never had a major issue with this card. only issues ive had was returns going back to card take 3 days to clear (alot of times if you let the teller know it was a gift card and you just thew it away they can issue a credit in some other form IE- store credit or manager can over-ride and give cash). some places will not take the card IE= gas stations (pay at pump)if you dont register the card with your zip code (best to pre-pay inside),same with if you try to make online purchase's. you can avoid alot of headach if you go online and register the card.

The theatre I live near gave me two free tickets out of kindness. Still no communication with the main office though about the gift card i bought online.
Suggestion: If you want a gift card from this company, go to the theatre and buy one instead of trying to get one online.

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.
