    Can merchant refund to an expired credit card? 2nd Jul 08 at 1:18 PM
    Credit cards expire all the time, of course. If I need to return some goods to a merchant (someone like Marks and Spooky, with a clear, easy refund policy), and I'd used a now-expired MasterCard to buy those goods, will the merchant be able to issue a refund to that card's account? Let's assume I still have the intact, but expired, credit card in my possession.

    Furthermore, what happens if I've destroyed the expired credit card in the meantime (when it expired)? That sounds more problematic, because the merchant has nothing to stick into the terminal.

    Thanks for any clues. I've asked the card issuer too, but haven't been gotten back to yet.

    Warmest regards,
