My daughters get this card for $100 every year for Christmas from an uncle and it expires at the end of the year. They are very careful with their money and sometimes forget to spend it. I would rather pay the $5 Inactivity fee but the bank takes anything left on the card, usually the entire $100.

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!!!!!!!!!!

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.

There appears to be little trust by Taco Bell management of employees to sell company gift cards.
When I purchased my $10 card today as part of a holiday sales promotion, a manager had to come to the register, approve the sale, go to a safe, unlock the safe, remove a zero value card, apply a $10 balance to the card on a SEPARATE register, then the card was given to the salesperson to hand to me.
I was a bit put-off by the lack of trust shown to employees and the considerable delay it took the manager to provide me with a $10 gift card.

We received a Visa Vanilla gift card for $50 as a gift from a family member. We used it to purchase two toys at a local store for $11. A few days later we returned one of the toys, and the return was processed on the same Visa gift card. Since then, the card has been declined everywhere else. When I called to figure out what was going on, they said the first purchase never went through, but the return did, so the card was deactivated, adn the only way to re-activate is to send them the receipts for both the purchase and the return. Otherwise, teh card is no good and they basically stole $50 from us. In fact, they keep telling us that we have a $58 balance on the card because of the return, which is supposed to make us feel better. But of course, we can't actually USE the card, so this is completely useless.
