Blackhawk Network, Inc. Reviews (581)

I called customer service after trying several times over a period of time to deal with merchant who took payment and did not deliver merchandise. We submit claim to who we thought was VISA only to find out it is a third party using the VISA name. They turn down our claim saying that based on our agreement (WHAT AGREEMENT THIS IS A GIFT CARD) we must submit within 60 days or basically we are on our own which is exactly what happened. Customer service reps horrific. I ask for addresses of people of phone numbers and was told we are not allowed to provide that. Are you kidding? They basically ended the phone call. It is the thought of a consumer that is buying a product with the VISA name you will have their help and the security of your purchases. This only happens within 60 days and then your money is lost. What a scam. Give people cash or a name brand store gift card. My poor child basically was scammed out of of her 50 dollar gift by not one but two people. I am going to make it my personal mission to inform as many people as I can that companies are only using the VISA name and give your business elsewhere.

On February 10, 2015, a check for the full amount of $1000 was issued to Mr. [redacted] at the address to which the account was registered. Mr. [redacted] should receive the check very soon if he has not already done so. The check [redacted] arrive in a "postcard" style format.

RE: [redacted]
Dear Ms. [redacted],
On October 12, 2015, Blackhawk Network Inc. ("Blackhawk") received a...

complaint from [redacted] with respect to five T-Mobile Prepaid Visa Cards. Blackhawk is the program manager for this card on behalf of the issuer, The Bancorp Bank.
On August 8, 2015, Ms. [redacted] purchased five T-Mobile Visa Prepaid cards and loaded $500 to each at the point of sale. On August 11, 2015, Ms. [redacted] attempted to register two of her cards, but failed identity verification on both. A cardholder cannot load additional money to these cards until the cards have been successfully registered (including passing [redacted] verification). This is a requirement of federal law.
Ms. [redacted] could have spent down the funds on these cards by using them anywhere in the United States that Visa Debit is accepted. She chose not to use the cards in this manner and refused to attempt to register the other three cards. On September 22, 2015, Ms. [redacted] requested a refund for all five cards.
We apologize for any inconvenience that Ms. [redacted] has experienced. On October 8, 2015, we processed a refund for all five of Ms. [redacted]'s cards. Although it generally takes about 30 business days to receive a refund check, a check was issued on October 9, 2015. Ms. [redacted] has received and cashed this check.
We consider this matter closed. Please, reach out to us with any further questions.

card.  “Reloadit” is actually a brand name; not a company.  Blackhawk Network Inc. is the program manager for this Visa Gift card on behalf of the issuer, MetaBank.
 
[redacted] has requested a replacement card on three different occasions because she has never received them.  We are unsure as to why they are not being delivered to her as her address has been verified.  Since we are unable to issue a replacement more than three times, we have issued a check for the remaining balance on [redacted]’s card.  She should receive it in 7-10 business days.
 
We apologize for any delay or inconvenience that [redacted] may have experienced. We have reached out to her to inform her that the refund check is on its way.  It will arrive in a “postcard” format.
 
Accordingly, we consider this matter to be resolved. Please reach out to us with any further questions.

I think it is ridiculous for the card to clearly state "FUNDS DO NOT EXPIRE" but after the valid thru date you have to pay $15.00 to get a new card. Why can't the original card be reactivated for free if funds aren't expired. It's just a way to make more money in addition to the $3.95 maintenance fee. What is the maintenance for because it's not keeping the money on the card active. I've never had a card with fine print like this and plan to never use one again.

respect to an unauthorized charge on his Visa Gift card. Blackhawk is the program manager for these cards on behalf of the issuer, MetaBank.
On February 3, 2015, Mr. [redacted] contacted customer service. He stated that his wife had purchased a $300 gift card on January 18, 2015. When Mr. [redacted] tried to use the card, he discovered that there was only $1.26 left on the card. A $298.74 purchase from Walmart had been made on January 19, 2015.
We asked Mr. [redacted] to provide a completed dispute form, a copy of the front and back of the card, the activation slip and a bank statement showing the purchase.
Mr. [redacted] provided the form, the copies of the card, and the activation slip, but failed to provide a copy of the bank statement. Nevertheless, as a courtesy, we credited Mr. [redacted]'s Visa Gift card with the disputed amount of $298.74 on June 5, 2015. Mr. [redacted] may now use his card to spend the available balance.

Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 10, 2015/06/10) */
(The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)

I purchased 3 [redacted] cards at my local grocery store. I put amounts on the cards in order for 3 family members to be able to use funds while we were on vacation. In attempting to register the cards, two of the cards were unable to be registered. I called their customer support to attempt to resolve the issue. This is when all the trouble began. I dealt with 4 different customer service employees. To a person they were rude, unhelpful, and basically combative. Each assured me they had fixed the problem and each time they hadn't. The funds were never available for the trip on the cards and to make matters worse, I was unable to get the money off the cards in order to use in a different manner.
This company is TRULY a nasty company. They charge for services that don't work. While my money was stuck on their card and I was on vacation, they were charging service fees on the money!!!! I attempted to use an ATM to find out the balance on one of the cards and it wouldn't give me the balance and yet when I finally got access to the statement of the card, they had charged me for attempting to get the balance from the ATM.
I am not one who writes reviews. I cannot express to you how angry, frustrated, and simply blown away I am that a company that is this inept, unfriendly, and unhelpful can exist in this day and age. THEY ARE THE SINGLE WORST BUSINESS EXPERIENCE THAT I HAVE EVER HAD. At this time, I have resolved 2 of the 3 cards and am working on getting what's left of my money off the other card. It is now 3 weeks since I've returned from my vacation. They made sure to charge me service fees the entire time.
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY'S CARDS. THEY ARE OTHER ALTERNATIVES THAT WORK MUCH BETTER.

Revdex.com:I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. I have received, and deposited, the $100 check on August 25, 2017 and am awaiting the $5.95 refund check's arrival.Sincerely, [redacted]
