Most Recent Store Reviews for Raise.com
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.
