Gift certificates do not exist anymore.
So why did someone seriously pull out a Meridian Mall gift certificate yesterday and try to use it?
It was from December of 2002.
2002. Yes. It was eight years old.
It was a $50 gift certificate. And with the depreciation, it was worth a grand total of $21. Why wouldn't she have used it already? It didn't even start depreciating until 2005! That's more than two years!
I didn't even know how to enter it in the register! There's apparently an option on there for mall gift certificates? I never knew!
