Yeah I'm guessing it had more to do with the card being dormant than anything to do with Gamestop. Especially with as shady as Ebay is, they probably have it in their agreement that any gift card not used in 90 days becomes "inactive" and you have to jump through hoops to reactivate, or something similar.

They did tie the $200 to my ebay account, so I did get the money back. No explanation as to why it was frozen.


I guess my original point was even if a GC shows $0 (on ebay at least) it may just be dormant or suspended. I wonder how many other companies do this. I know I have some old target GCs I bought just to get the collectible GC (like the pez dispensers, coins, etc) and I am wondering if I actually did clear them out or if they got the same treatment.



And to the other posters, I do normally immediately check the balance of GCs, but I was going to give this one as a gift. I gave the Southwest one as a gift too.

When did you purchase your eBay gift card? I thought they killed off using GS credit to buy eBay gift cards years ago.

3 years ago. Luckily I still have the receipt. I think my only other GC from those days is a southwest airlines card. I'll have to test that one later.

Been out of the game for a while, but I figured I would pass this along:


If you cashed out GS credit for a giftcard, you may want to check the balance. I have a $200 ebay GC that I went to use and it shows a $0 balance on the ebay giftcard balance page. Called ebay and they said in their system it shows $200, but the card was "frozen". To get it usable they need a handwritten note, photographed with the back of the card and the purchase receipt.


Not sure if it is only ebay GCs that are the problem or if it applies to others as well.
