I checked the information on line and someone used his account the day after I purchased it. Vanilla visa said they could do nothing and that I would have to take it up with the company they got something from. The apparently material percentage of gift card value that goes unused creates additional accounting complications.

Gift cards were a huge hit during last year's holiday shopping season, spurring sales at major retailers like Starbucks, where gift card users now account for about 14% of North American revenue, and Barnes & Noble.

One of the gifts (a small fridge) we just wanted to exchange as the one we had received was slightly damaged after we opened it, they wouldn allow it as we had no gift receipt. Some of the gifts the gift giver didn attach a receipt too or maybe in all the commotion it got lost who knows.

Maybe I won't even open it and take it back then, I don't know yet. We made good time, and got there 20 minutes before it opened.
