Thread Details

A week or so ago, I had purchased a Walgreens gift card at an 11% discount from Cardpool for a balance of $49.92. Got the card in the mail but I don't think it's an actual "gift card" per se. It says "Store Credit" on it but it's plastic like any other gift card.

Well I went into my local Walgreens today to pick up cheap milk for $2.69 a gallon. Machine would not read it and cashier would not accept. Figures....Now I'm stuck with a $50 card that apparently I can't use to buy milk on every few weeks or so when they run discounts on it. Mad

I believe depending on the type of gift card, only the red gift cards with 'Walgreens' on the front are like cash. Other gift cards cannot be used on alcohol, dairy, cigarettes, prescription drugs because of vendor contracts.

Yeah Walgreen"s sucks lately. They want to squeeze every single dollar out of everyone and move their Corporate headquarters to Switzerland. I'm spending the majority of my time at cvs, Target, and my local grocery store. Consider it a blessing and buy your milk from your local grocer.
Wags sucks lately. Frown

That sounds like a "W" card to me, and W cards are a no go on eggs, milk, cigs, and guns like nuffsaid said.

Do I have a case against Cardpool to return the card and get my money back? After all when I went ahead and purchased this "return card" I thought it was a gift card as it states on the site.
