ok i tried to use a gift card i was given for my birthday . i went to a tobacco store to buy a bag of tobacco . when clerk tried the card it said declined he repeated same issue .. i left store went hom went online to view balance ect as i had just received this card ..  i then returned to the store to make purchase again it was denied .. so i pull out the phone n call ... i was asked what type of store n purchase was i trying to make which is irrevlant but i told her i was buyng tobacco ... and she repeated question what type store i told her a head shop that sells tobacco .. she said gift cards are restricted from allowing certain types of purchases ... i find this offensive as on front of package the gift card came in and says clearly on front use anywhere .. was a 50 mastercard gift card .. that was registerd to me . now the state i reside head shops are legal as is tobacco ... so how can a credit card company say card can be used anywhere then refuse service due what your buying ?? this gift card is a beare instrument that cash was paid n the credit card is used in lieu of cash ..  when is it legal for anyone to restrict my buying of a legal product ... does this not bear falsehood by the refusal n blocking of merchants because they sell pipes n tobacco ?  needless to say i gave card back to person who gave it to me . they have original receipt for card purchase and are handing it over to their attourney ..  i wanted to let people know mastercard and mygiftcardsite.com are doing this and i find it illegal and offensive that they can garner or control a persons buyign n selling ... they have no legal right n i find it unconstitutional this happens ... i could not use the card for buying tobacco and im 47 years of age ...
