@shebang: I don’t think your embarrassment is worth a 100 dollar loss to the company..no.

I think having them cancel the card and issue you a new one is sufficient. Let your friend know what happened and I’m sure they will understand.

@shebang:  I personally think it is because this was their fault. Yes, you returned the gift but it isn’t your problem they sent the giftcard back to the gift giver. It should have been in your hand before you left the store and if they couldn’t do that, then they should let her keep the store credit and give you one too.

BUT I don’t think they will do that. So I’m sure your friend will understand…it might be slightly awkward but she maybe has already called the company if the card arrived, wondering why she now has a $100 store credit to her house from them. Ya know?

@shebang:  I know another bee had a problem with something like this with Macys or somewhere else where they refunded the amount to the givers credit card. let me find the post to see what happened there but I would recommend that you both get issued the amount for the gift, they should have a protocol in place for wedding gift returns.

I think you should let the $100 go.  I know you would have liked to have it but I think at this point, it looks bad to cancel a gift card the gift-giver receives and the store isn’t going to care enough to give you an additional $100.  I think it would be super rude to ask for the gift card from the gift-giver.

I wouldn’t ask the gift giver to send you the money, that’s quite tactless. If they want to send it to you they will, if they don’t want to they won’t.

They will get the whole story when they call anyway, asking them about it will be awkward city.

Wait….West Elm has a registry option?


Cause I want to register there, but haven’t been able to find information about it on their website.
