Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. Complaint - Gift Card Scam
I purchased two pairs of sneakers at Dick's online site. At checkout step 1 asks if you would like to redeem a gift card - I had one for $50 to use. Step 2 asks for a credit card for the remainder. I liked one pair of the sneakers but not the other. On accepting my return Dick's credited $50 to my gift card and kept my credit card money. The whole point of my purchase was to redeem the gift card. They claim they return money in the order it is paid but you have no choice in the order you pay. This is a huge scam to get you to spend money over and over with them.
My credit card company said they can not help in a dispute because it's technically a gift card issue. DO NOT SHOP AT DICK'S.
