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.

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.
