Beware CardCash Gift Card Website

I bought two gift cards from CardCash as Christmas gifts for my elderly parents.  Unfortunately, when my parents went to use the cards, they discovered each had a zero balance.  These were electronic, printable cards, so there is no excuse for this.  CardCash hides behind a 45 day return period and refuses to make good on worthless cards.  So beware -- it is highly embarrassing to give a gift card and have the giftee find it worthless.  Looking at the BBB website it is clear I am not the only one scammed by this company.

I think they are the only ones in the industry to offer a 1 year warranty on gift cards.

Did you use the cards within 45 days?  I presume not.

Discount sites like CardCash aren't good places to buy gifts - they're best for buying cards for your own use.  Maybe you should have paid the extra 10% and bought the gift cards directly from the merchant?

Exactly, don't say they hide behind a 45 day return period if you didn't familiarize yourself with their rules before purchasing, then whine when you get left with a worthless card and want resolution 6 months later.

You know it could be 6 months guarantee and this guy's post would still happen.

No matter how much guarantee there is, if you don't monitor your finances, they can get stolen.

Yes, but if the card is drained within their guarantee period, you have recourse. To come here 'warning' everyone there is no excuse for this, when the 'no excuse' lies with the purchaser for not reading terms, yet thinking it's now cool to blame the company for his/her own failing.
