Ratings and Reviews
Purchased some Cabelas Cards for $380. The first payment didn’t go through so I had to resubmit. Even though Raise only shows one completed transaction and one failed, PayPal has 2 authorizations. PayPal dinged my PayPal balance for the first one and my bank account for the second, putting it in the hole. PayPal won’t release the funds until Raise cancels the authorization. May be PayPal’s fault, may be Raise. Either way I’m out $380 for now. The 2 companies have issues with the way they take money and it needs fixed. Right now neither one will fix it. They both tell me to call the other company. Super frustrating.
Invalid cards and no response
I have been using Raise for a couple of years and until recently haven’t really had any serious problems. But a few weeks ago I bought four $25 gift cards to a store and only one of them worked. The manager of the store searched for the cards in her system and printed me evidence that 3 of them were invalid. So I bought 3 more because I still wanted my items and I figured Raise would just refund me the invalid gift cards. Well 2 of those were invalid too! I went to the online chat and it is just a bot that said someone would email me within 24 hours. They didn’t. A few days later I sent an email. Finally got an auto response saying that they are slow because of COVID which is ridiculous because as an internet only company, work at home shouldn’t be that big of an issue. I emailed again and sent proof of the invalid cards. Nothing. I called the 800 number that was in the email and it simply refers me to chat or email. I chatted again (both times I was well within the stated “chat hours”) and again it said someone would email me within 24 hours and again they have not. They owe me over $100 and no one has responded in weeks. I don’t know if they are going out of business and just stealing peoples money or what, but it sure feels like they stole mine! Beware!

To Everyone Using & Developers....
As a former Sr Financial Sales Advisor, I worked in a corporate bank for 11 yrs. I retired after having my little girl. In this age where ppl can buy equipment on the black market (machines & plastic cards) to copy the coding from debit & credit cards, I am sure the next step has been to do the same with gift cards, especially with the popularity of these apps & self check outs. I just caution users (and I use these apps myself) to buy with caution. Buy smaller amts if you don’t plan to use soon or buy just before you plan to shop, which is what I do. Sometimes I’m not able to find what I’m looking for but I’m also not losing money. There are very smart thieves out there. I encountered them everyday. And they are only getting smarter.
Developers...please find a way to protect buyers from this or offer a different guarantee. I read some of the reviews. You can’t offer a gift card that doesn’t expire & only protect it for a yr. All of those ppl that endorsed your app would not endorse it if they thought users were now possibly losing money to dishonest card sellers. Something different needs to be put in place. Maybe a way to trace the cards back? It is fraud 🤷♀️
