The most common reasons are that the card hasn’t been activated, the cashier is running the wrong type of transaction, the dollar amount being charged is greater than the card’s balance or the credit card processing machine is bumping up the charge amount to either place a hold on the card or to allow for a gratuity.
What happens if your gift card is not activated?
An increasingly common way to reduce gift card fraud is to require gift cards be activated before they can be used. Check the back of the gift card (or any gift card packaging you have) to see if activation steps are required. A gift card that is not activated will definitely not be accepted at the cash register.
