City Coupons Inc. dba eCardExchange Sold Bogus Gift Card; Refuses to Refund Money Internet
*Consumer Comment: eCardExchange is the number 1 gift card reseller in the country
Purchased gift card that was sent with zero value, never activated. Noticed outside of "30 day guarantee" ... company will not refund my money.
On November 3, 2012- I purchased online a Tractor Supply Company gift card for $162.14 from the third-party: ecardexchange.
On May 27, 2013- I went to Tractor Supply Co. Store, it was declined. I immediately contacted ecard about the issue. Spoke to "Jeff." He told me they would research it extensively, if necessary refund the money.
On May 30, 2013- I received e-mail from "Sarah" that the card was in working order.
Then-I then contacted the local Tractor Supply store manager and enlisted her assistance the gift card. The local store Manager ... who researched with her supervisor ... all who confirmed this was a "bogus" card, was never activated and has no value, never did. I e-mailed Ecardexchange these findings.
Furthermore- I contacted Ecardexchange's 800#, spoke to "Jeff" again. Explained the situation. He promised a full refund. Told me just reference his name in the e-mail. I would be refunded the money.
On June 3, 2013- I sent a follow up e-mail to Ecardexchange about the status of my refund.
On June 4, 2013- "Jamie" of Ecardexchange replied that her research said the card was good.
I then replied via e-mail- with the fact it was a BOGUS card. No value on it. I wanted a full refund, as already promised via phone by "Jeff" on May 30th.
On June 5, 2013- E-mailed back & Forth with "Steve." Now offering store credit. Citing policy, profit margins, trust issues (did I already use it?) etc.
When I said that was unacceptable- he rescinded the offer and closed the case without resolution.
