Did you know?

days and it goes on sale
some retailers will make
Lost a Gift Card?
Most stores will replace it but
only if you have the receipt. But
if you have already used it your data
might be in your online account.
Planning on giving someone a gift card this Christmas?
Be careful scammers have been copying the numbers off
the cards. Than they'll wait until the cards are activated or
finding some way to activate them on their oswn and take the
money in them leaving your giftee with a zero balance. To
make sure your card hasn't been compromised. Look for signs
of tampering on the packaging and check to see if the film
covering the numbers hasn't been scratched off. If possible
try and buy your gift cards directly from the store or restaurant
instead of at drugstores or supermarkets.

save and given you some safe tips and tidbits during this
Holiday Shopping Season! Happy Shopping!
