    How to lose $400 worth of gift cards

    Or, anyone want to go to Disneyland?

    Found these gift cards in my shopping basket. I'm guessing they're paid for. Probably someone bought these for their grandkids. No way to figure who bought them, or is there?

    The cards are free, if anyone wants them. LOL. Yeah, right. Actually, they'll only cost you a hundred bucks. Seriously though, I hope whoever bought them can deactivate them, then re-buy cards again.

    Thought about trying to see if they are activated, but the next thought was: Then someone might be able to track me down and say I stole them from some ol' lady.

    Oh well, would like to do the right thing, but don't think I'll ever be able to figure out who the original purchaser is/was.
    A skilled Tech would solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    Disney customer service is top notch. If whoever paid for it in cash, then there is probably no way to tell. If they paid with a credit card (most likely), then Disney may be able to trace that back to the transaction when it was activated.
    Who knows, you may get something back... at least some good karma!
    At a minimum, they should be able to tell you if they have been activated or not.

    I agree, maybe there is a number on the card somewhere that you can call and at least try to find the rightful owner.

    How do you write off something you didn't pay for?

    The store would be able to cross reference the purchase in their computers.

    Should be able to check online. Most cards will have a url for that.

    Which brings me to a pet peeve, and that is gift cards. I get them for places and things i have no interest in and "activation" usually is a pita. If you want to give a gift, use some imagination and buy or (gasp) make one or in lieu of personalizing, get a card and enclose cash or a check!

    There's no phone number or URL on the card.

    No way to see if they were activated.
