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!

I'm a huge fan of the this gift card. I shop at Amazon.com a lot so there is a good chance I'll use the card and get something I like. It's also convenient because I can order from home and Amazon has such a large selection. I'm going to add this as one of my favorites.

I wouldn't even give this one star to be honest. If you are going to buy any type of prepaid gift card, I would suggest Visa. Hubby and I have had nothing but problems with any Amex cards we have purchased. We tried to use it on walmart.com for baby stuff....declined. Tried to use it on a cosmetics site...declined and told they don't accept prepaid cards which is odd because I've used prepaid visas on that same site for 3 years now with no problem so it has to just be amex cards. Tried to order off of Amazon...declined...TWICE. It's not very convenient when you have to call to register the card after you purchase it. Especially since we have never had to register any Visa cards we have purchased and if we did, you can do it online in a matter of seconds. I would seriously suggest skipping these cards and going with Visa. Period.

Who doesn't like the gift of travel? US Air gift cards are great for the frequent adventure seeker on the East Coast, very convenient airline with a lot of choices. The GC never expires and I never have trouble redeeming them

Who doesn't love an Amazon gift card? I buy them for my parents and friends all of the time. Amazon has everything!
