Macaroni Grill Informative - Gift Certificate Error
LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- Last Christmas I purchased my dad a gift certificate to Macaroni Grill in the amount of $35. When he visited in March 2008 (Lancaster. Pa) he attempted to pay the bill with it. I thought his bill seemed higher than it should have. Upon questioning the waitress, she said the certificate was only in the amount of $25, not $35. Luckily, my dad just happened to have saved his receipt where I paid or it would have been our word against theirs. I complained to the manager (who acted like we were bothering HIM), and he never gave us an explanation except to say the computer must have misread the amount. My dad, who works on computers, says that is BS: the card will either read properly or it will give an error. I mean, really, why didn't the card say the certificate was for $100 with that logic? I think they are running a scam.
Do you want to buy a gift card for a friend? Please think twice and get it for the Olive Garden or a steak house!
