    Next Gift Cards 18th Jun 17 at 10:39 AM
    Mrs Frog tried putting a few gift cards of a tenner each onto her account.....she doesnt want to lose them. It doesnt let her be in credit by more than £15. Online and on the phone.

    So she has a plan. Buy some stuff online. Have it delivered. Pay the cards onto the account. Return the stuff to the shop. Have the money credited to her account.

    Wouldnt it just be easier to accept the cards onto the account in the first place?

    I'd just double check this will work before she does it. Last time I bought something (a different retailer though) with a gift card online and returned it, the balance was refunded directly to the gift card. Luckily I hadn't thrown it away!

    Yeah but this has the NEXT account inbetween the giftcard and the return. Stuff bought on account gets refunded to the account.
