Our Policies

Issuer and Affiliates may provide Card purchasers with information about the redemption status of Cards. Cards cannot be returned, resold, transferred for value, redeemed for cash or applied to any other account.

Fraud

Issuer has the right to close Card accounts and may request alternative forms of payment if Issuer believes such Cards have been fraudulently obtained. In general, and in the interest of protecting you from fraud, we recommend that you do not purchase discounted Cards from third party resellers, including online resellers. They are NOT authorized resellers. Often these Cards are purchased with stolen credit cards and may be closed at any time.

Not for Promotional use

Cards may be used as personal or business gifts, but may not be used in connection with any marketing, advertising or other promotional activities (including without limitation via Web sites, Internet advertisements, email, telemarketing, direct mail, newspaper and magazine advertisements, and radio and television broadcasts) unless you obtain Issuer’s prior written approval. Such approval shall be conditioned on, among other things, execution of and compliance with Issuer’s gift card license agreement. If you are ordering the Cards in bulk or are interested in using the Cards for any promotional purpose, please call the store. From time to time, Issuer may issue or award “rewards”, "promotional gift cards", "credits", "vouchers”, or similar physical or electronic gift cards (collectively, "Promotional Cards"). Generally, these Promotional Cards have the same terms and conditions as the Cards described here, however, they may have expiration dates, delayed activation dates or may be subject to additional restrictions or exemptions as provided on the Promotional Cards themselves or any packaging or other written materials that accompany such Promotional Cards or any applicable law.
