This card is absolutely horrible and barely even works. WTF! It is impossible to try and find your balance or even apply it to a purchase. WORTHLESS - DO NOT BUY THIS CARD!!!!!!!!!!

Works well if you spend all amount of value on very first shopping. If you use just partial amount from whole card value, its impossible to find remaining balance for next use.
Register will not tell you, how much money is available on the card and register cannot process it unless you say the dollar amount you want to spend on it. So you can keep trying to guess (if cashier has patience enough)
Only good thing is - never expires.
I bought it (and also received one) as a Christmas gift. First time and last time.

You can not check the balance...followed their instructions kept getting error message. Now account reads "locked".
Called the phone support number and it will not recognize the 16 digit number on card.
Card is issued by US Bank...call hangs up without the "correct" 16 digit number.
Results: Absolutely no help, balance is still unknown and of course it can not be used for over the balance so i'm kinda left in the dark here. Thanks for nothing!

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.

I ordered a visa gift card with a photo of my friend on it for her birthday. When I received the card it looked great, but I noticed that I made a huge mistake and spelled her last name wrong on the card. I emailed to see if anything could be done and the owner of the company actually replied to me at 10pm at night and said he'd have it taken care of. I had a new card in hand within 4 days at no extra charge. I love to see when a business owner goes above and beyond to take care of their customers.
