I liked the deal, especially that the GC will last 5 years. However, when I purchased a GC, guess what, it is valid for 2 years only !!!!

Valid thru Wednesday, May 18, 2022

FT, where is the 5 years deal ???

-----------------
Edit
while purchasing, it shows 2 years

when I checked the purchased GC, it showed 5yrs

If you click on the link "View all purchased gift certificates", you´ll see that it expires in 5 years.

The answer to 1984 is 1973 § Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

Interested to know why you would want to invest in a long term GC... In 5 years it will have half the buying power it has today... What am I missing?
It is time we stop accepting the things we cannot change, and start changing the things we cannot accept...

Just order something right now and put shipment on hold.


Personally, I don't like the available denominations. Not possible to collect a store credits for a standard $20 order, for instance.

To satisfy your curiosity : With the purchases I am making and planning (for my friends as well), it is a win for me to get an extra $20 for free with the $200 GC, since I am already going to spend $200

For me this gift certificate deal sounds more like:"Hey guys, we desperatly need some money to pay our bills. Pls lend us some money under the form of gift certificates." Thank you. Hope you understand.
We can't agree on everything.

They probably really need some additional liquidity due prolonged delivery times.
The other thing makes me worry: since this deal is more or less equivalent to sitewide sale (I'd say effectively its 7-8% off) (and if they didn't raise the prices, too) what gonna happen to regular holiday 15% sitewides? Dead as easter bunny?

The thing to do is: get the gc with 10% off and use it during a sitewide sale afterwards. Double discount. I think FT didn't think of that.

MAP and bulk purchases too.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

Bulk pricing is incompatible with coupons.

I'm thinking about 25% July 4th :)
But can FT endure that...
