Gift2go horror stories
Had an unpleasent experience brought on by the use of a giftcard at a merchant who didn't release the hold? Do tell.
Entry for July 17, 2008 Funds still unavailable

In the next few day we will see just how honorable the gift2go card provider and its associated bank are at removing a pending charge that has gone unclaimed. It has been 28 days since checking out on the hotel and canceling transaction with a gift card intended to cover any phone call. No charge was presented by the hotel yet the funds remain unavailable.

Card users are being taken advantage of by a policy of slow refunds. A policy suggested by Visa.   dzp
