Yesterday, while my son was sleeping off jetlag, I thought it would be the perfect time to pick up a gift at the Lego store. I've been hoarding their Lego gift cards over the last year and had time to figure out which set had Boromir. (???)
One of the gift cards, bought the same day as the others failed. This is always my fear with gift cards and why I'm afraid to give them. I've had too many Nexxon game cards fail and have to take them back to the store with a receipt. Of course, being a gift, I didn't have a receipt and they wouldn't honor the gift card. That irritates me, and trust me, I let them know.
Are any of you afraid to buy gift cards for that reason? That the money doesn't get on the card? Have you found a way to ensure that it does? Until I can ensure that, I refuse to buy gift cards.
Oh, and DH woke my son up by the time I got home, so he was onto me anyway. Somedays, one should just stay in bed.
