I've been a proponent of CardCash (and ABC Gift Cards same company) for years. I've always defended them in many forums and among friends and family. I've purchased over $15,000, probably closer to $20,000, from CardCash in the last 5 years. Whenever, I got a card without any funds on it, they would refund my money within 5 to 7 days. However this time I got burnt and I got burnt bad by CardCash. So much so, my family and I will probably have to postpone our dream trip to Disney!

Back in September we purchased 3 Disney gift cards worth $250 each ($750 total). We paid a total of $702 for the cards. In order to safe guard them, the 3 cards were entered and registered in our Disney account. Several weeks ago, when checking our account we noticed that it was short $750! I quickly contacted Disney and the customer service rep stated that the cards were removed from our account because the original purchaser had bought them with a stolen credit card!

I contacted CardCash about the situation and got the same, "Sorry, past our 45 days guarantee". After some pleading, I was told they would not refund my $, but would give me a $100 credit. This just isn't good enough!

I believe there's a reason why CardCash's guarantee is only 45 days. A consumer can take up to 90 days to claim a fraudulent charge on their credit card. Then it can take several more months for the banks to investigate the charge. This puts buyers like us at a disadvantage since CardCash only guarantees their cards for 45 days. There are several other secondary card sellers with much better guarantees...Raise - 1 year, Cardpool - 1 year, Giftcard Zen - 100 days.

Look elsewhere people....I am!

Agreed. The 45 day guarantee practically encourages fraud.

customers who refuse to use their gcs before 45 days encourages fraud also. but i don't see customers changing their habits either. entitled americans always want to put the burden and responsibility on somebody else. if you KNEW going into the purchase that you only had 45 days to stay protected and that you take a risk after that, why would you allow yourself to be the victim? i don't blame cardcash for limiting the customer's time but they haven't put a limit on themselves and how they deal with fraud. they put the limit on you, just trying to weed out lazy customers are more likely to be victimized because they're sitting on risky cards too long.

if you buy a burger king gc for $50 on january 1st and it is reported stolen on march 1st, if you already ate $50 worth of food by february 1st and sh*t it out, then you have nothing to do with the problem; nobody is going to get that $50 back out of you. cardcash is just trying to remove the end customer from the equation so they have less to deal with. between cardcash, the bank/credit card, the "real" victim, the thief....last thing they need is a lazy customer claiming they lost $45 because they only at 1 hamburger in 2 months.

if you don't like 45 days, it if doesn't suit you, don't buy it. if you need a gc for 60, 90, 120 days, pay the security fee for it (it's called full price). for christ sakes, who funds their family vacation for nearly $1000 using a 3rd party online vendor (where risky, second-hand gift cards are bought off the street) for next summer, clearly past the protection period? you spent $20,000 in the past and thought you were just damn lucky and you played the odds and you got burned, that's all this is. yes we all feel sad, nobody should have to be ripped off, but c'mon man! use your head use your head!

and stop putting gift card into the online account. those places are becoming less and less secure by the week. they are hacked into and the numbers are stolen or used while they are attached to the account and the merchant still won't honor the security. you're just posting your gcs online to be stolen when you enter them into the online database. keep the gcs in your pocket until you are ready to use them and enter them at the last minute if you must for whatever reason. people are eating off my restaurant gcs because i store them online and they break in my account, order food, and by the time i get the "thank you for your purchase" email, there's another "thank you for picking up 6 pizzas last hour" email right behind it and my gc is nearly drained; used at a restaurant across the country. one merchant reimbursed me, 2nd one didn't; learned my lesson, stopped putting big balances in the kitty.

Oh the "entitled american" argument...well I do not feel entitled, however I am a consumer and as a consumer I have rights. All consumers have rights....and purchasing products that were not originally purchased with stolen credit cards falls well within those boundaries!

Well this quote says a lot about you kensteele. So I guess you are saying you have no problem buying a gift card that was originally purchased with a stolen credit card, just as long as you use it all before being caught having to pay anything back. Wow! I can assure you that I would not have purchased those 3 gift cards if I knew they were purchased fraudulently. And I'm sure most slickdealers would not purchase any gc's if they knew they were originally purchased illegally. People on this forum are here to save a few bucks, not stick it to other people.

When I bought my original 3 gift cards there were about 12 others at $250 each left. I'm sure that the families that bought these remaining gift cards probably haven't used all of them in the first 45 days. I'm also sure than many of them are holding on to those gift cards and don't even realize that the balance on them is now $0. But according to you kensteele, it's their own fault since they're lazy!

You obviously have never visited any Disney forums. Many, many families fund their Disney family vacations this way. If they can save an additional 10% off their vacation, then it was well worth the effort. Even bloggers have written how to save money on a family vacation using secondary market gc's.

This is your opinion, however many people register their gift cards in an account to protect them from the original dishonest purchaser from using them. Also they are protected if you lose them. The one thing it won't protect you from, as I found out, is if they were originally purchased illegally. Now I understand why merchants are starting to require customers input a credit card even if their redeeming a gc, this way if the gc was purchased illegally, they'll charge your cc.

If your having people hack your account, then maybe you should be using tougher passwords and changing them more often..."c'mon man! use your head use your head!"

Thank you to "the CardCash Crew."

I had a problem with an e-card that I purchased to use at Dunkin Donuts.

I sent an email, and the problem was resolved within 24 hours.
