A reader has raised concerns about the value of gift cards, but they’re a common source of income for many Americans.
Here’s what you need to know.
article Posted October 18, 2018 09:14:21 The gift card is a form of payment that the USPS accepts at their facilities.
Gift cards are also called prepaid cards and they are accepted at most locations, including some supermarkets.
But they are not guaranteed to be worth the $10 or $15 you pay.
The U.S. Postal Service has a rule that allows gift cards to be used only once and not to be exchanged for cash.
The USPS has a website where you can ask them for their policies on gift cards.
If they won’t provide them to you, you can file a complaint with the Postal Regulatory Commission.
The rule applies to all gifts received on or after April 1, 2019.
You can get the gift card in person, by mail or online.
Here are some of the ways you can get one: The giftcard will cost you $10 to $15.
For the purpose of this guide, we’re going to assume you already have the giftcard, which is valid for one year.
Here is how you can redeem it: First, fill out the giftCardPurchaseForm.
The form asks for a name and address.
Next, fill in the required information.
You’ll be asked for your zip code and a photo ID.
If you don’t have one of those, a valid driver’s license or a government issued photo ID will do.
The credit card will be charged $10.
You may also be asked to provide a phone number and a username and password to access the service.
The card will then be delivered to your address.
If it’s a prepaid gift card, the card will not be mailed.
You won’t get an email notification about it.
The next step is to call the customer service number listed on the form.
You will be asked how much the gift is worth and will be directed to the receipt or receipt message that comes with the gift.
If the gift has already been paid for, the credit card holder will be billed $10 and they will not receive the card.
Here we go.
You now have $10 worth of giftcards, and you can use them.
The giftcards are not redeemable for cash, so you need a phone bill or a receipt for each transaction.
You must complete the giftForm online, which takes about 30 minutes.
You don’t need to use a gift card to make a purchase, as the money will be deducted from your bank account.
If a gift is a gift, the seller must include the date and amount of the gift, along with a note stating that you should not pay cash.
Once you’ve gotten the payment, the USPS will return the giftcards to the credit cards you’ve used to pay for it.
You do not have to keep them.
You might want to return them to the sender if you haven’t used them in years.
You are responsible for any additional charges, if any.
Here again, there’s no money-back guarantee.
Here, the recipient’s address is on the receipt.
You get the card back for the amount paid.
You’re still responsible for all taxes, fees, or other charges incurred.
Here the recipient pays the full amount and gets the card without getting a receipt.
If, at any time, the issuer refuses to return the card, you have two options.
You could pay the full $10 upfront and keep the card or you could pay it back later, and pay for the rest later.
The sender must also provide a statement of payment.
You still need to pay the rest of the balance, which includes taxes, if you have one.
It’s not necessary to give the sender your bank statement or any other documents that would be required by the postal service.
If both options are rejected, the sender can either ask the USPS to return your card or give you a new one.
The recipient gets the new card, but has to pay $10 for it and you don.
There’s no interest to be paid on the balance.
The issuer has 30 days to return or give back the card in the event that the recipient doesn’t give it back.
In the case that the card is returned, the customer is responsible for paying any taxes, customs, or fees that may have been imposed on the card by the sender.
Here you can see the receipt with the card that the sender paid for.
If your gift card isn’t returned, you should call the USPS and ask if the sender is responsible.
If not, you could file a claim with the FCC, which has an online complaint form.
The FTC can also help you.
They have an online form you can fill out.
