Fortunately, there is a good ending to my situation. I was able to get copies of receipts from Staples and had card holder services trace the cards based on info from the receipts and will be issued new GC's. #lessonlearned
GREAT!
Were they actually already emptied and someone is taking a loss?  Or were they just lost under a pile of mail at the post office and still had the funds on them?

None were used so I'm assuming they're sitting somewhere in a postal processing facility

If the cards weren't taped dowd they probably ripped the envelope when shifted around in transit
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

When I've sent GCs in the mail, I taped them in place 6 to a paper that was folded in 3.

I just misplaced a few gift cards. I have the receipts from Safeway. What's the number that I call? It was a Visa gift card issuers by MetaBank. The number I found online is only open from 8am-5pm Central time.

this is why staples will stop  selling GC with CC. YOu buy and you lose them and you go to store for refund blah blah.
STop ruining it folks!

When CVS was selling VR with CC, I had one store I was frequenting and  one day the manager has cash only sign with $500 limit. Asked why the sudden change he said some are buying them in thousands and than coming the next day or a week later  to claim refunding for losing them blah blah.
selfish
Dumb people learn from their own mistakes,smart people,from the mistakes of others
