I bought this to give at Christmas (thankfully I didn't). Tried to use it at Canadian Tire and got a read error.
The magnetic strip was damaged so I phoned thinking that was the problem. When I phoned I realized there needs to be a number on the front and it is missing on mine. They said they couldn't help without the receipt. I threw out the receipt but am hoping I can get a copy of it as I know where and when I purchased it.
What a scam.
I will never buy another gift card again. Good thing I didn't give this out.
