Very frustrated by their insisting on me giving them my photo id copies.
Buyers beware ! The raise.com requested me to give them my photo ID copy juts for a $500 value giftcard order,Of course I felt absolutely uncomfortable and denied it.I asked them why they insisted this, their answer is : this is the only thing they can accept.
So, I decided not to buy the $500 gift card from them. But....soon later I found out they suspended my account without noticing me at all , which means they probably do not really care if you can still shop on their website. Frankly speaking, this is truly the first time I 've heard an online website asked buyers with absolutely normal credit card charged by them all the time, to provide a photo id copy. Really ridiculous!! If you don't care about your personal ID security, then go ahead to give them your copy of photo ID just for few bucks savings through gift cards.
First time using Raise was a success!
I was a little leery with some of the reviews on here, but I tried it out and didn't have any problems. I bought a voucher and printed it out and used it the same day. No problems!
!! Horrible customer service. SCAM !! Stay away
I purchased the gift card from raise and it suppose arrive with 3-14days according from their policy. The gift card never arrived after waiting for 3 weeks. Contact the customer service to ask for refund but they told me to wait for the card to arrive. Never purchase from them again. Do not believe any of their Member Protection or Raise Guarantee. Just Scam
Sold me a gift card purchased with a stolen credit card.
The police contacted me today. They said the $250 gift card that I had bought from Raise.com on 4 weeks ago was purchased with a stolen credit card. So it looks like I'll have to return the goods I bought, and the retailer has forfeited the balance on the card. Raise.com customer support is not receptive to my complaint. They say they're a broker not a seller. Apparently I bought the gift card from a third party, so it's my loss. How do I rate them less than 1/5 stars?
Excellent discount gift card site - Buy with confidence
I've been purchasing from Raise.com for over a month now and have been very pleased. I've purchased over $3,000 worth of gift cards. Out of the 30 or so gift cards, 3 of them had issues. A couple of them showed a valid balance, but the card wouldn't work during online checkout. Another one just didn't work at all; the card showed as invalid when checking the balance online. In all cases, Raise.com promptly responded (within 1-2 days) and refunded me the cost of the cards. It's worrisome when you get invalid cards, but they always honor their sales. I always buy with confidence when dealing with them.
Quick and easy - No CashBack this time
I bought a $100 Starbucks gift-card for $84, and then applied a promo code "SLICK60" for $5.00 off. Within 15 minutes I could access the gift card on their website and transfer the balance to my existing Starbucks registered Gold Card. Great deal. There was no cash back offered on this transaction, but that's ok.
Worked for me...1Jan14
I bought two $50 Starbucks egift/vouchers for $42 each. I received an order receipt email immediately. Within 30 minutes I had an order shipped email and another email with the codes that I had no problem adding to my existing card using the online balance transfer. Couldn't have been easier....
I was very skeptical after reading a lot of mixed reviews. I bought Cabela's e-gift cards and they were emailed to me within 40 minutes.
The Cabela's order went through with no problem.
I did pay with my credit card so I could dispute the charge if I encountered problems.
Gift cards for sale at a little bit of a discount allows me to have discounts at stores that normally don't give any!
does not honor cash back from fatwallet
I've been using fatwallet since 2011 for cashback purchase and raise.com is the first store to deny a handful of my purchases claiming the referral came from another site.
I would be weary of using this site if you are expecting fatwallet cash back.
Beware your personal information!
Apparently this may be obvious to some - but it wasn't to me until I actually received my gift card. Raise only brokers a deal between buyer and seller, they do not purchase the cards and then re-sell them.
When you buy a card from them it will be shipped to you directly from the buyer. This means a 3rd party will be given your contact information. They will ship it off a pre-paid label they print from Raise. This label has Raise.com as the return address. In other words, the seller gets your information, but you don't get the sellers. They refuse to disclose seller's info to buyer, but don't have a problem the other way around.
It wouldn't have made a difference to me if they actually stated this in the process of buying a GC, but they do a good job of obscuring this detail. It bothers me after the fact since they don't disclose it. If it bothers you, don't order from them.
I did get a great deal on a GC (16% off), but I'm perturbed at their policies.
So far so good
Have made four purchases and all have gone through flawlessly. I was a bit skeptical at first, but it worked out.
Glitchy website and poor customer service.
The cart said $69 total with a $5 coupon code. Was charged $74 to my credit card and raise refused to give $5 credit to a previous customer! Ridiculous.
Never had a gift card fail from them
I've bought many egift cards and a few plastic cards and none have been a problem. the printouts look odd, but the merchant I used them at didn't even flinch. They were accustomed to seeing them it seemed. It was inconvenient that they had to type in the code and PIN for each instead of quickly being able to scan a barcode. And, some would go through as coupon/rebate and others as gift cards.
But, no problem with any, and I've probably gone through 15 or more in the past year.
