When a $200 Amazon gift card is the difference between a happy day and a lousy one
Posted On June 23, 2021
The day Amazon.com’s gift card program went live last month, some of the company’s top executives thought it was a good idea to spend $200 on groceries.
The card, called the Belk Rewards Visa Card, was a major perk that allowed the online retailer to buy products from retailers with its own brand of credit, making it a much more competitive option than traditional loyalty cards.
It allowed the company to take advantage of its growing e-commerce presence and its ability to charge fees for transactions, and it gave Amazon the ability to pay a $300 fee for a $20 credit on a $250 purchase, rather than a $15 fee for $50.
In the past, the company had been reluctant to offer its loyalty cards to its own customers.
And, in some cases, it was willing to pay fees to retailers for those cards.
But after the Belks, it felt it was time to open up its card program to customers, and the company has been very open about how it will charge for its loyalty programs.
But some Amazon customers found that the company was charging them a hefty fee for the privilege of using the card.
In some cases that included the $200 gift card that was supposed to be worth a lot more than it was, according to the complaint.
In a statement to Fortune, Belk said that the Visa Card was a great benefit, but that its “perpetual 30-day free trial was simply a bonus and was not a part of the original $200 introductory offer.”
It also said that some customers had been “misled” into thinking that the card was a way to earn points on purchases, when in fact it was intended to be used to buy other products.
The company also said the card had been used to purchase “other products” with its Belk membership program.
The Belks Card is a good deal, but some people were misled into thinking it was an incentive to buy things from Belk, the complaint states.
It is a big problem.
It was supposed be used as a way for Amazon to earn credit, which it was supposed do for other purchases, but it was used for nothing else, and now Amazon is being sued for not telling customers what was going on.
The complaint also alleges that some Amazon shoppers were not happy with the terms of the card, and that they were unhappy that Amazon was charging for purchases, even if it wasn’t necessary for them to use the card to buy the items on the Belknaps list.
Amazon’s online shopping service has been criticized by consumer advocates and economists for being too expensive and for charging high fees.
In an internal memo obtained by The Wall Street Journal last year, Amazon Chief Financial Officer David Einhorn acknowledged that the online shopping business was hurting Amazon’s bottom line.
“It’s hard to find a company in this space that’s doing anything right and isn’t making money,” Einhoorn wrote in the memo, according the Journal.
Amazon also has been struggling with a growing problem of fraud and misbehavior on its platform.
Last year, a report from the company found that, among a sample of 4.5 million transactions, 3.2 million involved credit card fraud, and 1.9 million were fraudulent purchases.
That report said Amazon is now the most popular destination for fraud on Amazon’s platform.
The complaints against Amazon come after the company, which owns the Belkas brand of online shopping products, was criticized in a recent report by the Government Accountability Office.
The GAO said the company and its affiliates had failed to disclose “significant levels of fraud,” including “sales of goods that were not authorized by the merchants.”
The GAO also said Amazon was failing to adequately track fraudulent activity on its site.
In addition to the Belka lawsuit, Amazon is also suing the online-commerce giant’s competitor, eBay, alleging it conspired to suppress the Belktives brand.
