I purchased 3 Fleming's gift cards on Wednesday with the intent to use all of them on Friday. However, they were all used at Outback on Thursday! I had all gift cards in my possession the entire time. This is an illegitimate company and I will report it to the Florida attorney general office and BBB.

I wish there were an option for negative stars or piles of poop or something. Don't be a fool like I was and do business with this company. Total scammers. 30 day guarantee makes you feel secure in your purchase but it is pure and utter BS. They sold me a gift card to restaurant that had permanently closed. No response after 4 emails. Had to spend 30 minutes on the phone filing a dispute with my credit card company. The creator of this scam should be arrested and sent to prison for stealing.

I had a bad AMC gift card and contacted them via e-mail. I never received a follow up e-mail from this company after I sent 3 messages. Will not use this company again.

Found bargain giftcard through giftcard granny. Got a gift card $50 value, without using it now I checked and says $0 balance, I sent them email and didn't receive any response. Thief, avoid them like the plague if you care about your money.

I've had two orders with them. One for a Dunkin' gift card, and the other one for a Starbucks gift card. Both orders went through without issue, received the cards within a few minutes of the order, and the balances stated were there.
However, given the high amount of negative reviews, I will note that I used the gift cards the second I received them in my email (linked them to my Sbux & Dunkin' account, transferred the balances out to my own cards). Any longer, and the chance for fraud goes up.
Additionally, their payment options does not look very secure (no option to pay with Paypal, no encryption listed at payment time), so I used a virtual account number to protect my actual CC.

I have bought several gift cards through them. Although I somehow didn’t have to send a copy of ID. At least not that I recall. I always use them between the guaranteed dates so something weird doesn’t happen. I once got two empty cards but was sent replacements with an extra 10 bucks free for the inconvenience. I try to dine around what they have available sometimes. Love the savings.

Purchased a gift card 2 weeks ago. I was gonna use it then realized there is $00 balance left. Contacted Bargain Gift Card customer service. No one responds. They owe me $100!!!

Bad experience...multiple times. They will ask for a copy of your ID (via email)...really?
If you do not send it in...they will cancel your order. Nice. Then if you call their customer support number you will get what sounds like a home answering machine telling you the hours of operation and then leaving you to a message that says "memory full".
You will get no response to emails requesting help or clarification of issues. AVOID!!

I was interested in buying gift cards from their site, but I kept getting error messages every time I put my credit card information in. I emailed their support team to find out what's going on, and didn't get a response. I clicked on their Facebook and Twitter links in an attempt to reach out, and their Facebook page has been deleted and their Twitter page is inactive. That's definitely a bad sign that this company is shady. I'm so glad that I found this site and I see that I was saved from being scammed based on the responses. I'm adding a review to also warn others not to use this site. It does not operate professionally.

I bought a $30 gift card for McAlister’s Deli and when I check my balance, it keeps giving me a zero balance. I’ve been trying to reach the support at BARGAIN GIFT CARD - to no avail! Don’t use this site!
Review by Oxera Polloni4 months ago
I came across this site after visiting Gift Card Wiki since they were selling Whataburger gift cards at 35% off so though I would try them out to understand what kind of experience I would have. Upon receipt of the gift card, I checked the balance of the card and found it had only $1.70 remaining of the $25 balance I was supposed to receive. I sent them an email that day informing them of the problem and after nine days I have yet to receive a response.
In terms of a dispute process, sending an email to a company with no return acknowledgment of receipt is rather odd since most companies have a formal claim process. With that said, I have initiated a charge dispute on this purchase to get my money back since Bargain Gift Card claims to have a 30 day guarantee. Rest assured, this will be my last and only purchase with them.

This gift card scammer needs to be SHUTDOWN!!! I purchased a number of them from this guy...YES...it is a "one-man show" and he is NOT friendly OR helpful! What I've come to find is that he seems to like Arby's and Panda Express and will keep tabs on the usage of your cards and use them up after a period of time that he might deem "too long" since you've bought them and last used them...OR he will "test them" with small purchases first to see if you're watching your balances! These cards are like cash and NO ONE should have access to them after you've purchased them...yet he has FULL access to your account & will STEAL your cards back from you if you don't use them in (what he might consider) a "decent amount of time". They're NOT supposed to have expiration dates...yet my last card in my account was just depleted in the amount of $40.59! I paid $31 for a $50 card to Mimi's Cafe and used it only ONE time and now it shows as "not valid" even though, when I checked it a couple of months ago, there was still the total balance of $40.59! If this man doesn't use them...I believe he's given the option to sell them back to the companies in which he's made a deal with to buy them! He only gives a 45-day warranty and you will, very likely, lose the balance of your card(s) if you don't use them up in that time frame!
I agree with some other reviews on this forum...those of us who have been stolen from need to turn this man into the Attorney General's office of his state (FL) for investigation AND be reported to the BBB. He used to have a phone number to call...which no longer works and his ONLY form of response...IF you can get one from him...is by e-mail. He's RUDE, NASTY and CONDESCENDING when you call him out on his practices! I have saved the e-mail he sent me in which he was EXTREMELY unprofessional and used VERY vulgar profanity. I have EVERY intention of using that message he sent me in my report to both the FL Attorney General AND the BBB!!! Stay as FAR away this "business" as you possibly can!
Also, CardFlip is another one that will begin depleting your cards after a certain time. I don't know what that "time period" is, but it's happened to me with this SCAMMING "business", too. So I will NEVER buy from them, again, either! Also, I suspect Mr. BGC and other scammers sell their fraudulent gift cards on E-Bay, as well and will do the VERY same thing...as I've experienced this with gift card sales on E-Bay, too! DO NOT BUY GIFT CARDS ON E-BAY unless they are a very long-term and WELL established business with a VERY highly favorable rating! I...for one...am DONE losing money on gift cards! I can't afford to be losing this money and I SURE don't want to be handing my money over to SCAMMERS!!!

I bought a giftcard that supposedly had an evoucher option but I haven't gotten any verification whatsoever and contacting their support email gets me zero response. I will be filing a complaint with y bank to get a refund through them. This is a scam and Giftcard Granny led me to this site so I won't be using that either.

My credit cards never work in this website. I'm afraid it's a website to collect personal and card info.
Review by Anzar Illik5 months ago
Non-responsive. Call the number provided if you have issues and the message is to send an email. Send an email and they never respond. Making a purchase is impossible with constant error messages. I ultimately got a fraud alert from my credit card company. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Stay away from this! A clear indicator that they are not legitimate is that they want a copy of your ID! They make it sound as though it's to legitimize the buyer. I suspect they're not about selling gift cards; they're probably stealing identities and credit card information

Don't buy from Giftcardwiki. They list a vendor that is out of business (CARDFLIP), so if you buy a card there, you're stuck and will lose your money; simple.
I have sent several messages making them aware of listing an out of business vendor, they never responded.

SCAM!!! The address they are using in Tampa houses a business called "The Fraud Doctor". If these are the same people who run "Bargain Gift Card", they must think they're funny. I have the Tampa Police Department involved.

Tried to purchase cards and the checkout won't work. Have emailed them multiple times with no response. Judging from the other reviews, I guess I'm lucky the checkout wouldn't go through!

Bought 2 gift cards for Landry's restaurants. Only one worked. Bargain Gift Card would not credit me with the other. I have spent thousands of dollars on gift card websites and this is the first time I have lost money.
Will not use them again.
Review by Fakawee5 months ago
This one man show is a scam.
He sells discounted cards hoping that you do not spend all of it within 30 days. After the guarantee expires, your gift card balance will magically become $0 and filing a claim is almost impossible.
Some of the fake 5 star reviews are probably from the the owner.
The reviewer (Sheri) below says that the website is under new ownership??
How/why would a regular user know/care whether the website is under a new owner.
Scam owner writing scam reviews!

Bought over a $100 Walgreens card a month ago. They do not return my emails. Phone leaves a message to email them. This is a crime to use the internet to scam money. We all need to contact the authorities to have this scam site shut down. They are breaking a federal law by scamming people over the internet!
