aren't gift cards nice? they take something like cash, which is used anywhere, and make it useful at only one place

Did you ever think that whoever gave you the gift card got it for free after the company went out of business? My Xmas bonus at work was a $10,000 gift card to Circuit City :(

Lala, I believe that is what #1 said. His point being that if it was cash, she could've gone to another salon. OP, why did you wait so long? Are there other locations? Gift cards are a huge scam. I think companies make millions a year in unredeemed cards. FYL

yea... gift cards suck.... I remember I got one a while back and it was only redeemable online... this was after I picked out what I wanted and handed it to the clerk... but seriously, just give cash... might not be as personal but just say something corny like "I got you a gift card to the world"

There are also such things as visa gift cards. so instead of handing cash to someone you can pretty much give them a card that's usable everywhere.

I paid $400 for a year gym membership, then froze it after a month to go on vacation, came back and they're out of business. mine is worst, no?

really is this an fml about you not being able to use a gift card the tackiest of all gifts? if so then you my friend are lame. I'm pretty sure your life is just fine whether you can use the stupid thing or not.

I think the op should give it back to the person who gave it to her when the next birthday comes around. chances are that gift card was reused. or she waited too long.

they get away with all kinds of stuff I once had $150 gift card and they made it impossible to make an appointment (lots of things happened on their end like the electric went out and they were short on staff etc) and then it expired. they refused to honor it after that. But in the end I heard the owner that I yelled at for such poor customer service died a year afterwards. guess what comes around goes around.

agreed. like honestly? it's $45 to a hair salon, not the end of the world. then your life would really be fucked. haha

okay obviously its not and what does california have to do with anything seriously? and i didnt even think it would get on fml actually the rest of my day consisted of getting cussed out by a black guy for doing nothing and then getting accused for stealing at a store and the alarm going off. but i couldnt fit all that in.

actually it's more of an "your life is saved" because there's got to be an underlying reason they went out of business...

It is impossible to call ahead and see if the card is valid...that goes against the laws of perpetual imbecility...
