I would call the store(s) customer service department. They might be able to override the system, so that you can use all of your gift cards at one time. You would have to ask each individual store why they have limits on how many gift cards you can use at one time.

I would call up the customer service and order through them. I know I’ve paid with more than 2 gift cards in store before (lots of Target GC after high school graduation), they probably just limit it on the online checkout form.

We had A LOT of gift cards at one store. I had them transfer the full amount to one card. I can just never ever lose that card.

I pretty sure that with BB&B you can go to the store and have customer service order it for you (even if it’s online exclusive), that way you can use all your cards.

I did the same thing as bakerella.  I went to each store and had them amalgamate all my cards onto one.

I think it has something to do with theft policies- like if you use a million gift cards online, you could have somehow stolen a million of them, and are trying to cash them in.  I guarentee if you call and explain the situation, there is an overide or a solution…  They probably have the online system set to a default to protect themselves… Good luck though- I can only imagine how frustrating that is!

You can go into a BB&B and they can order their online items for you there and you can then used their 20% off coupons too.

@trugem: I’m suprised that Kohl’s is the hard one to deal with on that, with all their commercials saying how ‘awesome’ their policies are!

@trugem: Oh that’s the worst!  I can’t believe he didn’t take it off the cards right away.  I don’t think they are as great as they think they are!
