Why moan? Just fix it. Think the bank doesn't have procedures in place for what has to be a common incident?

Boost has got it right. if anyone has ever used one of these, they know these gift card debit cards have a website on the back for activation. unless it's an actual checking account that the uncle opened for OP, which I doubt because that's a lot of work for a birthday present

How do you know he actually put $1000 in there? what if he just forgot to get you a present and got a card and made up that story? like that song: ai ya yai its christmas and i dont know what to do! i dont have a gift for YOU!

So? How does that help? If the bank were willing to just activate a card by placing money on it, then there'd be no point in having an activation code.

activation codes are there just to get them more money from the people who are stupid enough to forget to activate it.. seriously why else would there be one otherwise

Yep, the bank staff take free vacations all the time on money obtained this way. Best profit spinner ever. And I should know.

Unless he gave them to you, because you were in need.. I wouldn't call this an FML. You'll eventually get them, and this will have been a simple inconvenience. YLIA
