I received an Amazon.com $50 gift card from my daughter on December 25th.  She purchased it online on 12/18/2012.

On 2/4/2013, I scratched off the cover off the gift card claim code in order to use the value of the card.  Upon entering my claim code on Amazon's site, it was stated  that the card value had already been redeemed by a person not known to our family.  I immediately called Amazon's Customer Service. The representative took all of the pertinent information and said that she must forward it to the Gift Card Department and I would hear from them soon.

Three additional lengthy phone conversations and two weeks later,  Amazon has done nothing to resolve the situation.  The Gift Card Department insists that it must talk to the purchaser of the card, even though they received all of the purchase data (date of purchase, order number and purchaser's name).  There has been no meaningful attempt to replace the gift card or find out why it was redeemed by another individual whose name and account information is known to them.

In my opinion, this is a blatant rip-off and fraudulent business transaction done by Amazon.com.
