Giftcard reseller cardpool has made a change to it’s guarantee on purchased gift cards, this went into effect for cards purchased after September 1, 2020.
The Purchase Guarantee is NOT applicable to gift cards whose issuers or retailers are no longer honoring gift cards, whether due to bankruptcy, elimination of their gift card program, or other causes.
This new guarantee is effective as of September 1st, 2020. For purchases before this date, the only difference is the length of the guarantee, which was 1 year. The term was reduced to encourage you to use the card quickly after purchasing it.
Looks like Cardpool might have been sold as well. Obviously you should always try to use second hand gift cards as soon as possible but it’s ridiculous that Cardpool is trying to frame this as a positive.
