That would be dumb, after all Ive gone to a store just as it opened on a Sun (1st day of the promo) and low and behold not 1 VGC or MC even in the reserve area. Samething when going to a supermkt when its gas pts week. I simply get in my car and head to another store

Does Staples give a rain check on GCs? Im sure over time as the computers will show that stores sold more then 1 per transaction and more then 1 at a time to the same CC that they will tighten up on things. Got to remember its not the same corp owners as yrs ago and these guys not only want their $$ back ASAP but along with a profit. On the other side of the coin just as Amex has shut down any earnings from Simon, Chase could do the same with Staples
