I noticed I can't access my ebay gift card codes yesterday. Now this. Not sure what does this mean, but it sure sucks.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I tried to access the Sears card I bought about a month ago to make a purchase. Site is down and now I can't retrieve my gift card number or gift card pin.

Yeah, I know, it's ridiculous. Hopefully, we'll be able to get our gift cards. I'll try to avoid ebay and paypal in the future, this is not how business should be conducted in 2016. Not to mention ebay's change of terms for gift cards without any notice period.

Right, I almost printed mine out when I bought it (wish I would have now).

But I didn't because all the kids telling me I'm old fashion, and that everything is safe "in the cloud."

Wish I would have ignored them and just killed a tree and hard-copy printed the darn thing out.

Same thing there with gift cards purchased about 1 month ago. Should have saved a copy of my code locally. It is not acceptable that the service is down for more than few hours. How is it that a company as big as Paypal can have there server down for days??

I just hope it's a temporary thing so we can liquidate/print gift cards and learn the lesson of never trusting paypal/ebay with our money for more than a couple of hours. Frown

You don't have to print it out. Can screenshot it on PC or mobile phone.

That's why I print mine out the second I get the email that it's available. Do people actually trust PayPal for more than a split second now?

First they restrict us from using them to buy other GCs and now this. What are they trying to pull here? Lose all their customers?

Yeah, I noticed the Sears thread in DT yesterday. What possible legitimate reason could there be for a business with that amount of sales have for just hanging a "Gone Fishin'" sign on the door for a few weeks?

Exactly why I have to see one hell of a deal for gift cards before I jump - and I need to have an immediate use for them. What makes this worse is that PayPal Digital Gifts was the most trustworthy of your sketchy buying options available. Them and maybe Gift Card Mall.

In the same scenario. Was in the middle of buying some items from sears and having points roll over from each purchase. Now I can't even get to my cards... Anyone know if you can call to retrieve your codes?
