I was thinking of using Square, but decided to try and run the card as a donation to charity. Then I forgot.

[Yes, it is true that many gift cards never expire. Those are the ones for certain stores or chains of stores. Think Target, Lucky...] Consumer laws in our state exempt gift cards that could be used at a variety of stores. Visa, MasterCard... fall into that category. You can use them anywhere practically, thus the convenience and the danger."

Better than nothing, but pretty shady I think. I called and they charged me $10 too. The CSR sounded surprised that I still wanted them to send a card with $2.01 on it.
In the past, I was able to deposit these types of cards into my bank account. I think because this one said "debit" on it, I was not able to. Then I forgot to use it.

I received two cards, and I put them aside as standby cards.
I went to use them today, and I noticed one expired on 05/12, and the second one is set to expire 06/12.
The sticker on the card reads "Card is sent inactive. Activate at www.mycardlink.
Website gave me an error, and phone activation did, too. I don't know if this is a temporary situation. I did try to use it online, and it failed.
Warning to anyone out there: Use them ASAP.
Now, I have to follow up tomorrow and see if they'll activate, or get a hold of someone at Mastercard and see if they can help. Not looking forward to this. I didn't expect them to be dead in six months.

you will receive the GC in the mail (via USPS). Just wait patiently, and if you did this in time, you should receive it sometime next week.
I received all three GCs (2 for me, 1 for me wife) starting last week. Good luck.
