This card is a Rip OFF !!
I was given a gift card which has a date of expiration on it for Sept 2017. I call today to activate the card and am told because I did not activate it in a 'timely manner' the card is now Closed and there are no funds available!! My arguement is that the amount purchased for the gift card is 'attached' to This Specific Gift Card # and until I 'Activate' it- it should not have a monthly fee deducted. Once the card is 'Activated' I can understand that there may be a monthly fee deducted for non use. But to deduct a monthly fee when the card has never been activated is beyond comprehension. I think Regions Bank needs to honor the gift card for the original amount. I was told because I didn't remember the original amount they could not ' help' me. Obviously the customer service rep had that information in front of him but was unwilling to make the situation right for a consumer. That's just poor business to me and I am thoroughly aggrevated, frustrated and unhappy with Regions Bank. If they wish to rectify the situation- I will expect an e-mail from their corporate offices informing me I can contact them and they will honor my card. If not- I would suggest not to do any business with Regions Bank.

I give this a 1 star. Doesnt let you register online and doesnt work on ebay. :(
I bought a Visa Gift card a while ago, it got registered online in a few minutes and was ready to work. There were no problems. Now im going to have to use this giftcard on useless items outside, when what i need is on ebay. there goes another 25 bucks. -.-
Im very dissapointed with this card.

TD Bank Scams folks of their gift!
My 16 yr-old just ran down from her room screaming with excitement, finding her bag of lost Christmas gift cards from 2010. One happened to be from Pop-pop & Gramma, issued by TD. Not recalling if she used any portion of them we logged in to find, 1) The card was never used 2) registered to my dad but addressed in ME (we're in NJ, ME is where TD location). 3) did have an insert in the envelope of the tiniest Terms & Conds. Which stated ME issued cards carry a 2.50 monthly fee after 365 days, whereas, NJ issued cards are charged the same monthly fee but after 24 months 4) half her balance was used up bc of the wrong location on the registration. CS line consists of interns or middle school aged kids...none of which, including the "claimed only manager" who stated he reports to no1? Wow some job! 4 calls & all different excuses...when asked to state the fees related & to which state they apply, got nothing but air. Manager, went as far to claim he is the only 1 with access to the date of issue, as previous rep#1 only can go back 12months, rep2 can't access issue date, & rep3 showed account closed, said card was depleted. However, humorous...mgr gave a solid issue date 1st as 2009, then Jan 2009, then Dec 2009, as I continued to argue his claim the 365 days had passed...but card fees started in 11/11, which didn't support his claim. Finally asked him to "Please humor me & count 13 months from Dec 2009. His response, nothing they can do. So I asked for his info, Cary empl #5051, but refused to provide an office location or even state.
I def will take this to bbb, but save yourself the headache or heartbreak of gift loss & get the Vanilla Visa Gift Card, good for 4yrs & fee clock starts with 1st purchase. & have awesome CS.

Avoid Target Giftcards
I ordered 3 for Xmas presents to go to same name and address. They sent an empty box and sent message to return it and to re-order the other 2. How weird? They said 2 cards would be delayed 3 weeks. I called Customer Service and you reach an Asian company that's separate from Target and they can't see your order. Oh - and try to cancel the order since they won't arrive for 3 weeks? No - can't do that. You had to cancel within 30 mins of placing the order. Target lost several customers with that transaction. They should spend some of the millions they spend on advertising on customer service.

Stole money from us
When we bought furniture from Ikea we used this gift card. Not only did they take the $500 from the gift card, but they also took $500 from our bank.
I am never buying from Ikea again.
Every time we call customer service and explain this, every single person tells us to wait 3-5 days for our money to be returned. It's been 4 weeks. They don't seem to care.
