This, sadly, is a real possibility given the number of stores that are going out of business. They just can't compete with the convenience of online shopping and the low prices that sites like Amazon.com offer.i like giving gift cards just worried that some stores will close by christmas.

I made the expensive mistake last year of picking up a couple of Visa (or maybe they were American Express) cards for my nephews - 2 cards, $50 each, and there was a $9.95 service charge to activate them for each one! My first experience with this type of transaction, didn't know any better. Just found out my bank makes the Visa cards available for just the face amount. I'll be picking them up there this year.I guess you can give the "vanilla" visa cards that can be used anywhere.
Honestly, we're planning to shop at THEIR store, or go to one of THEIR events - why would they even consider asking us to pay more? LOLPamela, I am tired of service charges on things. Bought movie tickets online recently for my DrillDance team, Needed 7 tickets and they put a $1.50 service fee on each ticket even though I did it all in one transaction. An extra cost of $10.50. Some of the gift cards here have a service fee so you do need to watch.
