  • That the supermarket will only take cash for it, so then I have to ring it up separate as a 2nd transaction! (I usually write a check or use my bank visa to pay for groceries, I hardly ever carry cash!).

  • I usually go through you scan, and you have to wait for someone to come over and activate it. It's not a big problem, but about the only issue I have with it. Besides opno being able to get any amount on them, just what they have available

  • Not being able to put the amount you would like to put on seems they come with a denomination too high or too low.

  • mine is after I spend money on the gift card (often buying several at a time) I then have to spend even more time and money looking for a gift card holder to put the gift card in... the ones they sell near those gift malls are expensive!!!

  • I don't buy them from those stands. I buy them through our school. My biggest pet peeve is having them there at all.
