Spent $160 on gift card. Doesn’t work. No response. No help.
by CumbersomeGap on 2020/06/04 18:33
I bought a Autozone gift card on Raise. It cost me $160. The seller of the card kept the numbers off the card and went online and spent the remaining balance. I confirmed this with Autozone customer service. The police can’t do anything. They said I have to literally travel to the crooks home state and sue him in small claims court. What a joke. Raise has not returned emails. I desperately needed those funds to repair my car. Now I have no money, no car, no job. Don’t buy gift cards on this site. You will be sorry.
Never ending server error...
by 2Ria on 2020/05/30 23:46
Every time I try to use the app, I get a server error (on Raise’s end) and cannot log in. I’ve had no issue with the website or with Raise. A few years ago, I purchased a DSW gift card that was reported as fraudulent. Thankfully DSW honored it. I contacted customer service and told them of the fraud issue, but the rep didn’t seem to care. I didn’t want my money back or anything...just figured I’d make them aware in case they received other fraudulent gift cards from a batch or something. Anyway, I’m rating the app as one star since I can’t use it for searching and purchasing new gift cards.
Useless App
by Merely Martha on 2020/05/18 13:26
I’ve installed and uninstalled the app countless times. It’s updated. Though I buy gift cards through the website, I’m tired of getting a message that there is a connection error on your end! Fix it or trash it!
Has gone downhill since last year
by Justwaldo on 2020/05/12 14:41
I had a great shopping experience until they decided to kick me off the site because they thought I was making multiple accounts. When in reality I was spreading the word to friends and family but I guess they didn’t want me getting any rewards or free money. Very sketchy customer service is non existent and you’re better off using other places that sell gift cards for better prices.
Love raise
by DrCaviar on 2020/05/02 01:33
I love Raise because they always have great gift cards in stock with decent savings. I like that they give out extra promo codes to save even more $!
Scam. Stay away from this business
by NOUBN on 2020/04/29 04:22
Updated: Barely replies to emails even after replying back to this review. When they reply to emails it’s like a robot wrote an automatic message Nothing is refundable here even though their policy states otherwise Coupons don’t apply
I have saved over $1,700.00
by MarPamKy on 2020/04/23 20:54
My wife and I use Raise to buy cards for the Nutrisysrem program we are on. Since February 2019 we have saved $1,726.29. We live the Raise program and highly recommend it for not just Nutrisysrem but so many stores and services. You can’t go wrong with Raise. MS, Kentucky
Nutrisystem cards
by Pat from PA on 2020/04/22 22:02
I’ve been using the Nutrisystem card for, at least, a year. If it wouldn’t have been for Raise there is no way I could have stayed on the program. I Christmas shop for Raise gift cards to pass off the savings to my family.

$50 iTunes card had zero balance when purchased
by KEB64 on 2020/04/16 03:12
Don’t buy from them! I bought what I thought was a great deal, but what seems too good to be true usually is and this was. I went to redeem it and it had zero on it. DONOT BUY FROM THEM!!!!
Great app overall
by Justin's Belieber . on 2020/04/08 22:44
The idea of saving money through purchasing discounted gift cards is incredible. The instant delivery is amazing in theory, though at times the gift cards deliveries take a while. It could take hours depending on the gift card chosen even if it says delivers instantly. If dining at a restaurant, make sure to purchase your gift card before you arrive to ensure that you have it before having to pay. Delivery time needs work but otherwise, it’s a great way to save money!
Gift!!

I purchase Play Station Cards for my Grandson...... I love how easy it is!!
Great but customer service is very disappointing
by Monibon29 on 2020/04/03 12:52
I love this app for the discount on gift cards. I am a true believer of every penny counts, the reason why I use this app. Do NOT believe their advertisement “100% money back guarantee”, this is a LIE! I purchased two 5 dollar gift cards to Dunkin’ Donuts and I tried to add one of them to my Dunkin app and it said sorry already used. Yes, I only paid 4 dollars and some odd change for the card but it’s the principal. I reached out to customer service via email and I was told to reach out to Dunkin. Like what were they going to do?! So I sent another email out asking if they could just credit my account with five dollar raise cash. I was emailed back the same response, “unfortunately we can not, please contact Dunkin’ Donuts”. Long story short use this app with cautiousness.
Wonderful

Warning They Will Steal Your Gift Card Balance
by Racadam on 2020/03/15 17:37
I uploaded a P.F. Chang’s gift card with $25 on it. I waited for the next day after they said it was pending to be listed. Then I checked the gift card balance and it was used up $0.00 on the card. I’m sick of these scamming companies they care about the cash than the customer. I hope this company loses revenue in the future.
Customer's aren't their first priority! Take forever to process refunds!
by Shayzinger on 2020/03/15 17:32
I write this review hoping that it helps someone. I've been using this app for awhile now. Most times I purchase a gift card expecting to use it immediately. Most times I do receive it immediately after purchase but it was 2 cases (IHOP & Applebee's) where I purchased and it says it will be sent immediately but I didn't receive it for almost 24 hrs later. They refuse to issue a refund as in the fine print it states it may take up to 24 hrs to be sent to you. I was a bit mad because they advertise it as available immediately but it technically wasn't. So fast forward to my most recent issue. I purchased a Xbox gift card. I've purchased many before this situation. Well, I received the card immediately after purchase and go to use it in the Xbox store, only to get an error that there is no money on this gift card. I try multiple times to make sure I'm entering the code correctly. Still no funds. I contacted customer service online and via phone and they ask me to send proof of the funds not being available. I email a picture to support and then this is when things got completely ridiculous! They told me it would take at least 14 BUSINESS DAYS aka 3 WEEKS MINIMUM to investigate the situation. So you guys send me a card with no money BUT also make me wait 3 weeks minimum to investigate and issue a refund....... That's RIDICULOUS! I paid my money and have to wait. They didn't try to give any credit for the issue and honestly this is enough for me to stop using the app. They cared more the seller of the gift card than the purchaser. It shouldn't take 3 weeks to resolve an issue like that. I emailed support one final time and they sent an update saying they would process the refund but it would take 3-5 days.... Even after waiting over 3 weeks. So if you don't mind risking paying for a gift card with no money and having to prove you received it without funds then go right ahead! I only rate 2 stars because it's a legit company but no way will I ever purchase anything else again. That 1 year guarantee isn't good at all!
Good app
by YTTERBERG on 2020/03/13 13:51
Yes I sold my gift card and the payment process should be a little faster but other wise then that it is a great app and they really do pay you. Other down side is that it takes a little long to verify my gift card when I post theam up other wise then that great app
Must be cautious
by Bahamamama117 on 2020/03/11 16:17
Can get good deal however I have twice purchased GC that ended with a value less than advertised AND have received NO help retrieving two gift cards purchased and sent via email after not being received by the recipients. Overall, like most things; buyer beware!
Locked out
by SIM PLAYER 777BJ on 2020/03/05 02:32
A couple friends and I got locked out for no freaking reason without a reason why. How do you get locked out of a app when all you do is buy gift cards!?
I bought a gift card and was given a voucher
by ink789 on 2020/03/05 01:22
This is misleading information, if I wanted a voucher, I would’ve bought one.

Great resource. Which more companies would participate.
Make me go back to web base
by RockieAngel on 2020/02/27 19:42
This app is making me go circle when I tried to sell a gift card, from the app took me back to web base and when clicking it gors around and around. Not user friendly at all. Will not recommend anyone to use it. Bad design
DO NOT GET FOOLED
by Shun214min on 2020/02/13 02:43
A friend told me about this App, made it look great. So I got it and made a purchase. A digital one. Supposed to be quick and easy. Unfortunately they charged my card and then decided to cancel my order. Now I can’t get what I ordered and I’m missing money. Trying to get customer support is impossible. NEVER MAKING ANOTHER PURCHASE AGAIN. Don’t get fooled. Apps like these are too good to be true anyways. Any reviews saying how great it is must be fabricated or something because there’s honorably nothing good from losing money and not getting what you ordered.
App won’t let me log in
by JLNDMOM on 2020/02/11 21:57
After I changed my account information on my computer, I was no longer able to log in to the app. Ever. Even after customer service tried to fix it.
“Cancelling a Refund” Nonsense
by Ginger 45678 on 2020/01/28 20:29
I bought multiple cards from this app with no problems until I ordered a physical card from Cracker Barrel. Cashier tried to run it multiple times and printed a receipt out saying it didn’t work. No prob let’s use the money back guarantee. My refund was issued. I think everything is all good and great. Now, three weeks later they are saying they are cancelling my refund (which basically means charging me again) and that Cracker Barrel basically called me a liar. Why would I lie about one card worth less than $25 and not about the $100 plus cards I got from Walmart? Because the CARD didn’t work. Now I’m set to overdraft from this new unexpected charge. Never again ordering from here or Cracker Barrel for that matter.
Customer Service is great!
by basejumping-abbeygbaby on 2020/01/28 17:37
I have been using this app for years now. Along the way, I’ve saved more than $300 for buying gift cards for places I was already shopping. If you like saving money, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Raise platform for purchasing gift cards! In response to all who have marked the app as one-star for customer service, I decided I needed to share my story. There have been a couple of minor issues along with the hundreds of purchases I have made with the Raise platform. Every single time (of at least 3 I can count), I have immediately contacted customer service and they have come alongside me to help rectify the situation. I have used both online/e-mail support and have phoned in, and both ways, I have been treated very well, and the rep obviously cared and wanted to help. Once, it was an issue with me inputting my husbands credit card account on my account (the name didn’t match, so for security reasons my account was frozen). Once, it was an issue with the new gift card not having the full balance on it (I returned the faulty gift card and they refunded me the full amount in a very timely manner). And once, it was an issue with a $10 off promo code not working (I called and the customer service rep immediately added a $10 credit to my account). These guys are not “out to get you.” They try to run an honest business. Give them a chance!
don’t buy on sunday
by Steimling racing on 2020/01/26 16:36
don’t buy on sunday. not open. that is ok but if they cancel your purchase on for whatever u can’t get it settled until monday. i get the feeling their system thinks everyone is fraud and cancel your purchase. that is the answer i get when this happen to me before one time they thought i was buying lowe’s cards for other people. not sure what to think. like now i have to cancel my shoe order that was on sale today and tomorrow not on sale. wish they would get the bugs out. thanks.
Surprisingly poor, fails at every step.
by mpaulsonco on 2020/01/25 21:56
This app is crap! Doesn’t work, I purchased a $25 gift card and they canceled it and said to call support. Every time I tap “Help” in the app it freezes! What terrible a experience and low-quality app.
RUDE and unhelpful CUSTOMER SERVICE
by Brutal B on 2020/01/22 19:43
I just got off the phone with Raise😩😤🤯🤬😭😳 the woman I spoke to not only Did absolutely nothing to help me she was one of the rudest disrespectful, unhelpful and unhappy customer service reps I have ever had the displeasure of having to speak to! I am not using Raise and going to CARDCASH Because I knowTHEY ARE POLITE AND HAVE BETTER Customer SERVICE! I am completely disappointed in Raise ! I get that my account was confusing as I was trying to tell her I had a old roommate who messed with a bunch of my accounts and the customer service chick was so just mean and Ownry ... she had the nerve to tell me my name wasn’t me! I just at that point told her I was done and she didn’t have to be mean ! Raise u just lost an extremely good customer! Your customer service needs major attention and major attitude adjustment! Card cash here I come ! To the lady on the phone u really need to get whatever issues u have worked out because u sounded extremely sad and unhappy from the first word u spoke to me!
Fix the app
by Jonnytrackstar122456 on 2020/01/21 00:48
WHY WHY WHY do you have an app, but not allow the selling of gift cards on the app. So stupid that you have to do that through the mobile web. Fix this ASAP.
Charged me twice
by perexxa on 2020/01/19 07:02
I just made a purchase and the total was suppose to be 40 dollars and the first time I payed it was with Apple Pay and it said it dint work so I put my card and everything on and then made the purchase after that I check my banco account and it says they charge me twice I need help with.

Don’t expect money back
by jb21894 on 2020/01/12 05:15
All in going to say is don’t expect your money back.ive shown the proof screenshots even and they reply with the same email every single time.so just be careful
Good customer service
by DaveM1985 on 2020/01/07 01:57
One of the gift cards I purchase wasn’t valid and it was promptly refunded when I inquired. Trust is important with this kind of merchant, and they stood by the purchase.
Signed up through referral and DIDN’T receive $5 promised
by matros@89 on 2020/01/04 15:14
Every time I tried to claim my referral the app forwarded me to the website and told me I had to verify my phone number which I did and still no $5. Why offer something if you can’t fulfill it!
Can’t use card
by Alyson850 on 2020/01/03 21:24
I bought a $25 iTunes card on 1/1/20 right after midnight. I got the card but iTunes says it was not properly activated. Apple said RAISE is not an authorized dealer so they can’t help me. So far all I’ve gotten is a BOT response from raise asking for order number etc. provided that and nothing since. I want a refund or an activated card!
Total scam
by QueenTeeira on 2020/01/03 03:48
Don’t use. I paid people to sign up and I had money on my account than they took it. Saying I had another account when I never made one. And my friends emails are not even close to mines. Emailed them and they never reply. Don’t waste your time and go use another app. Will be telling all my friend/family to uninstall
Account Frozen!
by bsbsbsthisgame on 2020/01/03 00:09
Just buy a gift card,but get a error “you must enter a valid code.” when I try to use it. Then I tell them give money back. Right they give me back but account frozen. And I wont try to get my acc back, because it's not my fault that your gift card no use. Now just uninstall app, and give 2stars for give money back. And bye.

I’m all for saving money where I can. After having a baby I’m not able to clip coupons and keep up with that much saving. Well this app is easy to use and helps save money. The gift cards are easy to redeem! I’ve saved $30 on places I was already going to go! Thanks raise!

Sells cards with no funds and will not honor guarantee
by Former raise customer on 2019/12/22 17:06
Buyer beware. I have been using raise consistently without issue until now. I reported a problem and was treated like someone incapable of comprehending how to use a gift card.
Watch out

Cards doesn’t work
by Sudhir.123 on 2019/12/19 10:47
The cards doesn’t work and when you call them they say it’s been used already I purchased a $100 card and was trying to use it 4-5 times in different purchases and locations, which the card was not working and I was under impression that I was doing something wrong (didn’t knew than the card was not working) So finally I reached out to Raise Cust care where they said that the 1 year period is completed so they can only refund back 10% of the amount for which I said NO I don’t want it, they can keep the amount. Very frustrating *
Don’t sell here
by shanky1689 on 2019/12/14 17:26
They charge 10% to sell which was fine but they charge another 30$ to mail cheque. They did not mention this anywhere before selling. Very disappointed.
Why don't you guys have amazon

Not if You’re a Seller
by BrianDeanLewis on 2019/12/10 15:09
Do NOT use this app if you’re selling a gift card. When you go to cash out your payment it will take a minimum of 3 business days and they will then push it back multiple times without explanation. Customer service is poor for sellers so you cannot obtain any answers. Only when I showed them screenshots of the payment date changing did they pay attention. AVOID AVOID AVOID
Dosent work

A fraud business model
by Gift card victim on 2019/11/30 18:35
I purchased a Delta airline gift card two weeks ago. And I got an invalid redemption code that I called the Delta airline customer service and confirmed it was invalid. Reached out to Raise, they refused to refund me instead they said they had to go through internal investigation for up to two weeks. This is ridiculous already, I did not ask for more I just want my money back if it’s an invalid card. Now, two weeks later, called in again, they still have no answer to my case. I truly suspect they just randomly throw these invalid gift cards and collected the cash, and started this long investigation period while they can use our money. Total fraud business.
Easy. Fast Savings!
by Miss DAB on 2019/11/24 22:58
Really easy to use and savings can add up quickly.
Please add ‘edit’ option to My Cards screen!!!
by PowShredder5280 on 2019/11/22 16:51
Very cumbersome to delete used cards from My Cards tab on the app...have to touch “...” then “delete” for each one and when you have 20 to do, its not fun. How about an “edit” or “select” option similar to how a photo library works so you can quickly select multiple cards and delete in one tap. Otherwise, I love Raise!!!

TERRIBLE “SUPPORT”
by Kerrbear1028 on 2019/11/20 18:25
I sold a physical gift card three months ago. All of a sudden, a couple weeks ago i get an email saying that the buyer reported that there was a “zero balance.” I know that this is 100% false because I checked every single gift card before listing them. I contacted the support team immediately and never heard back. I have contacted them several more times since too and still never heard anything, not even an acknowledgement. This is complete crap. Very unhappy with this site and will never use them again. Beware!
Do NOT Use !!!!! They freeze your accounts!!!!
by Brendanwrecks12 on 2019/11/14 12:16
Do NOT use this worthless app they will freeze your account!
Charged without order going through
by drek880 on 2019/11/12 21:29
The app keeps telling me to contact my bank and use another payment method, yet the funds were removed from my bank account not just once but three separate times.
Dependable

Annoying
by Xococo on 2019/11/06 16:44
I downloaded the app after swing it on insta I had to download the app then give it my cell phone number for no good reason then I had to confirm my email then I had to go onto the website to use a referral code the most basic thing that should be in the app or in the sign up but wasn’t. So the I have to re confirm my phone because “it didn’t recognize this device” then I find out you can’t even use all the 5$ you can only use 4$. So I can’t even test out this app or a 0% discounted Starbucks card before having to then give my credit card information. Too much run around for my taste and too much information to have to give to an app. Why does it need my phone number and why do I need to confirm my device on the web browser and why can’t I enter the referral when I sign up like literally every other site ever. Deleted.
Fraudulent sellersRaise doesn’t honor their safety guarantee.
by Lost.Jen on 2019/11/05 08:01
I used raise heavily without issue for almost a year and then I got my first ‘bad’ card. I was refunded almost immediately. Then a few months later I get hit with 2 of 3 $100 Domino’s cards (we loaded up with so many to give us options while my wife was fighting breast cancer since while I used to be able to cook, nowadays it’s asking for a breakdown and major hand tremors). I filed my claim. It seemed to be taking a while, but I wasn’t worried and grabbed $50 [2*25) for AMC (one of her first outings after chemo and radiation). We had problems, but I though it was the app. Unfortunately it turned out the cards were empty. I filled this claim. Then I had to follow up on the $200 as its return was late. Finally much later than their policy I was refunded the discounted price for the 2 cards on the 2 transactions. I thought all was well until Raise sent an email saying since they’d double refunded, they would just automatically charge my card. They DID NOT double refund. They just took the guarantee money back. After getting that email I see that they have already charged my credit card without my consent. Immediately I called the card to report an unauthorized use. The bank was great I was given a new card and number for security and they removed the charge while they investigated. Unfortunately, Raise lied to the cc company about receiving permission for the charge so it’s back. Stay away, stay far away!

Love the app for buying discounted gift cards but they keep freezing my accounts. I made a second one since my first one was frozen for no reason and the second the same thing happened! I had to make a third, Hoping they don’t freeze it. Sometimes the payment doesn’t go through for a couple of days so you don’t get the gift card right away which is frustrating if you need it the same day.
Very friendly customer service
by vijaya deepthi on 2019/11/03 01:57
I have tried calling the customer service many times. But all the time the response from them is very disappointing. They are ready to hear what i have to say. I dropped an email asking to close my account for good and as expected haven't received any response to that too..
App Not Working
by redzone36 on 2019/11/01 03:47
App continues to crash. Unable to open. Attempted to uninstall/reinstall—now I’m unable to even install the application. Been using Raise for years. Come on y’all, this has been a problem for almost a week. Fix this.
Extremely easy to unintentionally order
by brianchu5 on 2019/10/31 09:22
The button to make an order is merely labeled “Continue.” This makes it very easy to unintentionally submit an order when I merely wanted to check what my final price would be.
Digital cards take forever to deliver
by Christofury on 2019/10/29 00:15
It should be instant. I’m constantly unable to use my cards at the register because the app hasn’t loaded them yet.
No longer works with Apple Pay
by Mikey8199 on 2019/10/28 16:20
Seems to not accept Apple Pay after last update. I can pay using my linked card, but the Apple Pay option seems to not do anything.
App Won’t Load
by Kteach75 on 2019/10/26 21:16
With the latest update, my app won’t load. I loved Raise until this started happening. Now I have gift cards that I can’t get to. Please fix it!
Recent update is awful
by faux5 on 2019/10/26 18:32
Recent update is doing some crazy processing on my phone m. I try to launch it, it freezes. If I let it sit, the phone will get white-hot and not function until I do a hard shut off. No idea what they possibly changed that’s causing this issue. It only happens with Raise, all other apps, and the phone function as expected so long as Raise is not used.
App crashes after update
by akdjrndik on 2019/10/26 17:51
I’ve had no problem with my Raise certificates in the past but after the update every time i try to log in the app freezes. So I’ve been unable to get to my certificates. I hope you fix the glitches so i can use my gift certificates!
Freezing
by vtwong on 2019/10/26 15:45
Latest update has been freezing constantly. I can barely add anything to the cart without it crashing. I still haven't been able to checkout after attempting 5 times.
Please fix the latest update
by Notimetolearn on 2019/10/26 15:25
Worked perfectly before. But with latest update, the app keeps frozen on me as soon as I tab on the “back” arrow. Unusable.
Holding $500 hostage for more than 2 weeks now
by AllySharpe on 2019/10/26 12:03
Used to love the app, but two weeks ago I bought a bad gift card for $500. I reported it immediately. I was supposed to get a response within a week but I had to reach out. They then said they would issue a refund but another week has gone by and no refund. This has cost me more than they ever saved me and have lost a regular customer!
Latest Update Locking Up
by acemanawc on 2019/10/25 22:26
This is major....Please fix. On my iPhone 11 Pro Max, 256GB and running iOS 13.1.3, it locks up after a few seconds. I was barely able to login to my account, but shortly after it just freezes after selecting a tab at the bottom or typing. Thank you.
Fraud - no value in the card
by brethart7 on 2019/10/21 22:05
I bought a Walmart gift card from raise. It was suppose to have 103$ balance. I didn’t check until I wanted to buy something online only to disconcerted I have 0.01$ balance. I reported to raise and they promised me refund but It’s a sheer waste of my time and energy. I can’t recommend unless they fix these type of issues.
Great but Glitchy
by DC05401 on 2019/10/20 19:25
I love the app for the savings but sometimes there’s serious delays with the delivery. Even the instant pay is sometimes delayed a lot.
Bought iTunes cards for cheaper and they worked
by DogeyDogeyDoge on 2019/10/13 14:46
And the interface to do it with isn’t bad either. Good app
Love it!
by Norma N. on 2019/10/11 16:40
This app is great! You get gift cards with a discount. On top of that, you can also use promo codes for even an additional discount. You also get cash back. So you are always saving! I recommend!
New feature request
by khaate on 2019/10/10 02:44
I wish I could set up email or notification alerts for a particular or a set of gift cards that I am waiting for to reach maximum discount
Seriously!!
by cece16-3 on 2019/10/08 05:43
I love this app... when it works. I can login in perfectly fine on my laptop but when I try to open the app on my phone, it doesn’t allow me to login in. I don’t understand why this is happening but it’s annoying
TOTAL SCAM
by Qu1ntillian on 2019/10/04 15:42
I spent $50 on an iTunes gift card only to have it continually say it had already been redeemed. It was never redeemed!! I never got to attach it to my iTunes account. When I called their support team they basically told me “too bad.” They completely stole my money from me. DO NOT USE THIS SCAM SERVICE!
Slow and unresponsive customer service
by Jin H on 2019/10/02 21:16
Only good when you have no problem with the gift card, they are selling iTunes gift cards from other countries that won’t work in the US. After more than a month, multiple phone calls and 10 emails back and forth their customer service still can’t solve the problem,I end up disputing the charge on my card before 60 expires Really really really bad customer service for these days standard.
Love the ap!
by Smokey1972GB on 2019/10/01 20:46
I always look to see if I can get a discounted gift card thru raise before I enter a store!
High Fees - Inflexible and Difficult
by a.kelly on 2019/09/30 21:58
Raise has generally been inflexible and difficult to work with as a seller. Additionally, the seller fees are outrageously high. Would not recommend for anyone considering.
Irritating
by A_Fyfe on 2019/09/21 19:18
Great until you get a registered card and can’t use it. Don’t let their guarantee fool you. Trying to get it taken care of or your money back is not easy. Won’t be using again.
I love Raise
by Snoopychick75 on 2019/09/21 15:40
If you want to buy stuff from a store and plan on paying cash for it why not get a gift card for it and save $ while doing it. I want to buy $75 worth of Kohl’s clothes and went to Raise and purchased a gift card for $46 that’s worth $50 and now will apply it to my cart on checkout at Kohl’s and save more! I love Raise! 💗
Don’t buy Starbucks gift card from this app
by donnej on 2019/09/20 15:03
They won’t let you link Starbucks card to your app so you can’t get stars when using gift card and the gift card isn’t worth the few cents off I received
Great until a card doesn’t work
by Joey Jo Jo Jr. Shabadoo on 2019/09/20 13:28
This had been a great app/service right up until the point that one of the codes I received was invalid! I’ve contacted support through the app and through email multiple times over the past two months. In all that time I’ve received only one response, asking for a screen shot of the code not working. Immediately after I received this, I received an second email saying my support ticket was closed (despite nothing being resolved). I still sent the screenshot, but haven’t received a single reply since despite me sending several emails. I think this is a great service when it works, but the complete and total lack of resolution or communication when they send you an invalid code makes me very hesitant to continue using it. So much for their “guarantee”.
Awesome way to save money!
by Itsforjulieee on 2019/09/20 12:17
I love to stock up on gift cards I know I’ll be using, especially when Raise has a sale! I’ve been using the app for about 3 months and saved about $75! The stores I tend to buy are: Ulta (usually 10% off), Fandango (usually 15% off), and Forever 21. Combined with Raise sales that can go up to an extra 7-9%, you can see that the savings stack up! I tend to use the gift cards on myself so I can’t say on the experience of gifting, but it’s a gift to myself!
Ripped off

Lost faith in the company
by Jbev4 on 2019/09/17 00:35
Having several friends who worked here and watched their growth and sputtering on several fronts I deleted as I feel the company has lost their way. Same rationale on why I deleted Uber - if a company leadership team can’t be a good employer or corporate citizen I’m just not going to give them my business. Too many good, young companies out there trying to do the right thing for their customers and employers to spend my money with one I no longer feel good about. Bye bye
Fast buy
by Dr* Chaos on 2019/09/14 16:46
Fast, easy- what’s not to like...
Not anymore
by Harryoler on 2019/09/12 02:50
I was a big fan of Raise for over two years, purchasing many gift cards, but when I purchased a gift card that ended up having a $0 balance, I started wondering if their “1 year money-back guarantee” is a crock. I’ve tried several times over the past two months to contact them with no resolution. Now I’m afraid to purchase gift cards out of fear this will happen again.

To Everyone Using & Developers....
by Bakery Story/Team Lava on 2018/10/09 09:50
As a former Sr Financial Sales Advisor, I worked in a corporate bank for 11 yrs. I retired after having my little girl. In this age where ppl can buy equipment on the black market (machines & plastic cards) to copy the coding from debit & credit cards, I am sure the next step has been to do the same with gift cards, especially with the popularity of these apps & self check outs. I just caution users (and I use these apps myself) to buy with caution. Buy smaller amts if you don’t plan to use soon or buy just before you plan to shop, which is what I do. Sometimes I’m not able to find what I’m looking for but I’m also not losing money. There are very smart thieves out there. I encountered them everyday. And they are only getting smarter. Developers...please find a way to protect buyers from this or offer a different guarantee. I read some of the reviews. You can’t offer a gift card that doesn’t expire & only protect it for a yr. All of those ppl that endorsed your app would not endorse it if they thought users were now possibly losing money to dishonest card sellers. Something different needs to be put in place. Maybe a way to trace the cards back? It is fraud 🤷‍♀️
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME- POTENTIAL SCAM!
by Jooshaa11234 on 2018/12/24 15:03
Thought I’d get a simple process m. Purchased two PlayStation and Macy’s gift cards, but couldn’t send as a gift. Had to screenshot the cards to send. Later discovered a Raise cash section and noticed that here was space where you could purchase and send as a gift. WHY??? Why are there two places/methods to purchase gift cards, one for Raise cash and one just in general. What’s sense does that make? Of course I want to purchase a gift card and receive a reward or cash back, isn’t that the purpose of the app??? To add insult to injury the initial Macy’s card I purchase I still have not received, says it may take up to 24hrs. Why? Still haven’t gotten it. Tried to purchase the Macy’s card to other way via Raise cash, would not process. Got a response, “Could not process, please check your account before submitting again.” Terrible! Now I can’t even log back into the app to follow up with my purchases. Great idea but it’s currently being poorly implemented. Feels more like a SCAM than a service! I’m done.
Belated and Inpractical Guarantee
by OB-DB on 2019/02/26 15:51
My wife bought 2 gift cards for whole foods and both failed in a pretty embarassing fashion at the in-store check out. We applied for refunds and were told to wait for up to 7 - 10 business days for the process. It has now been more than 20 days and no feedback at all... We therefore had to call the customer service - as if we have no better thing to devout our time to - and they shamelessly told us that they were aware of the problem and yet, they were still waiting a response from the gift card supplier (which is whole foods). We then were simply told that they have nothing to do and that we have to wait. With this cheap attitude how do they think their ‘business model’ could survive if they cannot even handle a glitch with their b2b partners and shift the entire risk to their customers. Cannot wait to see their situation if there is a more systemic issue stemming for example from frauds and scams... Not considering to use this platform again!
RUDE and unhelpful CUSTOMER SERVICE
by Brutal B on 2020/01/22 19:43
I just got off the phone with Raise😩😤🤯🤬😭😳 the woman I spoke to not only Did absolutely nothing to help me she was one of the rudest disrespectful, unhelpful and unhappy customer service reps I have ever had the displeasure of having to speak to! I am not using Raise and going to CARDCASH Because I knowTHEY ARE POLITE AND HAVE BETTER Customer SERVICE! I am completely disappointed in Raise ! I get that my account was confusing as I was trying to tell her I had a old roommate who messed with a bunch of my accounts and the customer service chick was so just mean and Ownry ... she had the nerve to tell me my name wasn’t me! I just at that point told her I was done and she didn’t have to be mean ! Raise u just lost an extremely good customer! Your customer service needs major attention and major attitude adjustment! Card cash here I come ! To the lady on the phone u really need to get whatever issues u have worked out because u sounded extremely sad and unhappy from the first word u spoke to me!
Double charged.
by Coletrane07 on 2019/01/06 20:17
Purchased some Cabelas Cards for $380. The first payment didn’t go through so I had to resubmit. Even though Raise only shows one completed transaction and one failed, PayPal has 2 authorizations. PayPal dinged my PayPal balance for the first one and my bank account for the second, putting it in the hole. PayPal won’t release the funds until Raise cancels the authorization. May be PayPal’s fault, may be Raise. Either way I’m out $380 for now. The 2 companies have issues with the way they take money and it needs fixed. Right now neither one will fix it. They both tell me to call the other company. Super frustrating.
Easy way to save money
by PacificRy on 2018/09/27 01:56
For buying gift cards at a discount, the app is totally easy to use. Apply Pay makes it extra easy and secure. I wish there was Passbook integration, and the way to copy gift card numbers isn't intuitive. From a sellers perspective, there seems to be a lot of hoops to jump through. You can’t even sell gift cards through the app... the website is needed. And cashing in after selling cards could be smoother. To get available funds, I’d prefer getting a paper check but they charge a fee of $30, which seems outrageous. Still, overall it’s a great app, especially for people buying gift cards (instead of selling). And it will probably save you tons of money in the long run.
Been loving it, now losing my favorite feature..
by Theodore J Huff on 2018/09/19 14:26
You used to be able to search for a card and then select dollar ranges to grab specific kinds of cards. I’m not really excited to save 6% off 200 when I can save 5.9% off 25. Some times I might be, but I’d rather have that filter control back. I worry they took it away because it made it easier to compare raise cash vs the discounted cards. Either way I’m spending money on the platform - now I just feel like I’m being deceived through inconvenience. At the same time, I’ve saved about $60-$75 a month/average on this app for the last three months. Would like to continue.
Great but customer service is very disappointing
by Monibon29 on 2020/04/03 12:52
I love this app for the discount on gift cards. I am a true believer of every penny counts, the reason why I use this app. Do NOT believe their advertisement “100% money back guarantee”, this is a LIE! I purchased two 5 dollar gift cards to Dunkin’ Donuts and I tried to add one of them to my Dunkin app and it said sorry already used. Yes, I only paid 4 dollars and some odd change for the card but it’s the principal. I reached out to customer service via email and I was told to reach out to Dunkin. Like what were they going to do?! So I sent another email out asking if they could just credit my account with five dollar raise cash. I was emailed back the same response, “unfortunately we can not, please contact Dunkin’ Donuts”. Long story short use this app with cautiousness.
Used to be better
by themanoffewwords on 2019/06/24 00:15
The deals used to be better as were the daily discounts. Also until now I had never had problems but today was charged 2 times without checkout completion and now have to get my bank to refund it. Also you can’t use the in app or website contact info, when trying to send them an email from the link it only says unable to send message. And how am I supposed to have an order number to give as reference when my order didn’t go through but I was charged anyway?! It was nice while it lasted but I’m probably done with this service for good. 2 stars cause you can still save some money if they don’t charge you falsely
“Cancelling a Refund” Nonsense
by Ginger 45678 on 2020/01/28 20:29
I bought multiple cards from this app with no problems until I ordered a physical card from Cracker Barrel. Cashier tried to run it multiple times and printed a receipt out saying it didn’t work. No prob let’s use the money back guarantee. My refund was issued. I think everything is all good and great. Now, three weeks later they are saying they are cancelling my refund (which basically means charging me again) and that Cracker Barrel basically called me a liar. Why would I lie about one card worth less than $25 and not about the $100 plus cards I got from Walmart? Because the CARD didn’t work. Now I’m set to overdraft from this new unexpected charge. Never again ordering from here or Cracker Barrel for that matter.
Super Convenient!
by Kjwells94 on 2018/10/28 21:42
The app is really easy to use, and you get the gift cards almost right away. We just decided to go to Burger King, so I opened the app to check for gift cards first. I was able to find some that were 14% off! Just like that, we saved almost $2 off our trip that would normally be close to $10. I like that you can manually adjust the balance in-app (so if you have some money left over on the gift card, you will know how much is there).
Awesome way to save money!
by Itsforjulieee on 2019/09/20 12:17

0 balance in the card
by iqoooo on 2018/03/11 00:29
I purchased a $100 gift card 1-2years ago, and finally want to buy something from this store. When I use it, the cashier told me there s no balance inside of the card. And when I go back to raise and ask them what’s going on, they refused to solve my case, the reason is the purchase date is over one year. But when I purchased this card, there is no such plan. And gift card cannot be expired, so I just keep it until I want to use it. They also told me this:”Even though we do verify the balances of these cards before delivered to your account, we cannot guarantee you won't have an issue with a pre-owned product.” ......... very disappointed purchase
Waste of my time
by Raptor_4 on 2019/08/31 16:54
I’ve attempted twice now to purchase gift cards from this app and both times my transaction has been stopped and I’ve been told to call customer service. Against my better judgement and after talking with someone else they recommended I call and resolve whatever the problem was the first time so I did but was given no explanation as to what the problem was when I called. Now the second time I have attempted to buy I got yet another message to call customer service. I value my time far more than the few dollars I will save by buying cards from this app. Definitely will not ever recommend this to anyone and highly discourage its use.
BUYER BEWARE!!!
by PimpDintHavMyMoney on 2018/04/10 21:39
I have encountered problems with purchasing electronic gift cards, verifying the balances only to find that they have a zero balance when I attempt to redeem them. I lost out on several hundred dollars recently when I was told by Raise that several cards I’d purchased from different sellers (according to them) had been used in the same location in store—somewhere I’d never set foot. They refused to honor guarantee because the cards I’d purchased 3 months prior were “in my possession” at the time of redemption. Their guarantee does not cover unscrupulous sellers and merchants don’t cover cards bought via a third party, so I was basically screwed and I no longer use this service.
Didn’t receive my order.
by MathHound on 2019/08/03 12:53
I order two itunes E-gift card each worth 50 dollars. I never received my order and the email said e-gift card are usually delivered in few minutes after the order is been placed. Even after a day I didn’t receive my order. So, I contacted the support and I never received any help. Please be careful people, they charge my card and I never received my order. This is a scam app please avoid using it.
Check Raise First
by Andykin on 2018/02/07 05:09
If you're going to buy something somewhere, why not check Raise first? Gift cards are as good as money and you're basically buying money for LESS money?? I'm sure this sounds like an ad but I've had a 100% great experience with Raise. I've only had issues once regarding one of my payment methods, and support was very accommodating. I've never sold a card, only purchased, but thus far I have no complaints whatsoever.
Great app overall
by Justin's Belieber . on 2020/04/08 22:44
The idea of saving money through purchasing discounted gift cards is incredible. The instant delivery is amazing in theory, though at times the gift cards deliveries take a while. It could take hours depending on the gift card chosen even if it says delivers instantly. If dining at a restaurant, make sure to purchase your gift card before you arrive to ensure that you have it before having to pay. Delivery time needs work but otherwise, it’s a great way to save money!
Great customer service
by mlsanleandro on 2018/04/05 15:00
I have been a buyer over 5 years they do have great customer service and will guarantee their cards if within the year. I have saved so much money with them. Yes I have gotten a card that had a zero balance that they had no problem refunding me, this may be because there r dishonest people who use stolen credit cards to purchase the cards (that was the reason in my case).
A little disappointed...
by RJ Sly on 2018/06/23 14:21
I just downloaded the a few days ago and was anticipating my first purchase. We needed a recirculating hot water pump for the house and I found one at Lowe’s. Raise had been sending offers to my email, so I thought why not try to get a $200 gift card to save a little money. I transaction went extremely smooth and I was so happy and proud of myself that I shared my experience with several coworkers. But not even 10 minutes went by and I received a cancellation notice. The explanation was vague, something about an internal server error. Needless to say my very first experience was a disappointment.
Never ending server error...
by 2Ria on 2020/05/30 23:46
Every time I try to use the app, I get a server error (on Raise’s end) and cannot log in. I’ve had no issue with the website or with Raise. A few years ago, I purchased a DSW gift card that was reported as fraudulent. Thankfully DSW honored it. I contacted customer service and told them of the fraud issue, but the rep didn’t seem to care. I didn’t want my money back or anything...just figured I’d make them aware in case they received other fraudulent gift cards from a batch or something. Anyway, I’m rating the app as one star since I can’t use it for searching and purchasing new gift cards.
Cards doesn’t work
by Sudhir.123 on 2019/12/19 10:47
The cards doesn’t work and when you call them they say it’s been used already I purchased a $100 card and was trying to use it 4-5 times in different purchases and locations, which the card was not working and I was under impression that I was doing something wrong (didn’t knew than the card was not working) So finally I reached out to Raise Cust care where they said that the 1 year period is completed so they can only refund back 10% of the amount for which I said NO I don’t want it, they can keep the amount. Very frustrating *
Why does the app kick me to the Website?
by joedavenport on 2018/03/15 16:28
I’m trying to sell a card and once I select “Sell a Card” in the app, Safari launches then asking me to install the app. I tried using Safari to complete my profile and add a card but only received errors or non-response on the website. It seems like the app would be used for this action. Maybe a popup blocker that I have on Safari interferes, but that is also why it makes more sense to keep users in the app.
Hit or miss
by starrgzr99 on 2018/07/13 14:28
I’ve had several transactions seemingly not go through due to “card error” or “check with your bank error” only to receive confirmation email that it worked and I was charged. I’ve only ever done the lower dollar amount purchases for restaurants, but glitches like that make me real hesitant to get a larger dollar amount. Other times it works great. Deals lately have been rather disappointing though. No more than 2%.
It's illegal for gift cards to expire. That's a fact.
by ooceanblue22 on 2018/05/16 03:29
Years ago legislation was passed making it illegal for a company which has sold gift cards to put an expiration date on it. The giftcard must be accepted no matter how much time has passed. The reason is that the gift card is money. It's legal tender. Just as money has no expiration date, gift cards as well have no expiration date. It doesn't matter if the company policy says their gift cards will expire, it's completely illegal. Developers, please do some research into this matter and you'll find the truth in my my statement. It's the law. If you don't honor gift cards, no matter how long it's taken someone to use it, you are doing something illegal, and unless you change that policy, you're risking lawsuits and the ruination of your business. The money paid for the gift cards never expires, and neither do the gift cards which represent that money.
Brilliant idea...
by Jedi1122 on 2018/02/06 21:20
So often you get a gift card as a gift but most likely aren’t going to use it it’s nice to know there is an option of having it converted to cash & even though there’s a small fee... money is money! Not to mention who doesn’t want to get a gift card that costs less than it’s worth... like I said, brilliant idea
Glitches
by patricia.ale98 on 2019/11/03 04:39
Love the app for buying discounted gift cards but they keep freezing my accounts. I made a second one since my first one was frozen for no reason and the second the same thing happened! I had to make a third, Hoping they don’t freeze it. Sometimes the payment doesn’t go through for a couple of days so you don’t get the gift card right away which is frustrating if you need it the same day.
App works great...website not so much!
by FrenchHorn12/25 on 2019/03/22 13:55
I went to Raise website during a sale and the items in my cart did not reserve, so another customer bought one of my reserved items, but the website did remove or indicate which card was no longer available. So I went to app and it worked flawlessly.
Best customer service!!
by ceebee24 on 2018/07/06 13:17
Unlike most of the other gift card sites, Raise actually has a phone number to call where you can talk to a human to answer any questions you may have. And they are super nice and friendly. They do a great job of verifying the gift cards so you won’t end up buying a dud.
Raise has saved me hundreds dollars!!!
by KricketsKornerShoppe on 2018/02/22 00:52
I am a coupon and saving queen! Also an entrepreneur Who helps people make money #Cre8tiveSouls - Raise saved me at least $600 In a year! Silly not to use it just my personal opinion! I mean if you don’t like save money or make money then of course don’t use it but if you do then I think the answer simple!
TERRIBLE “SUPPORT”

I sold a physical gift card three months ago. All of a sudden, a couple weeks ago i get an email saying that the buyer reported that there was a “zero balance.” I know that this is 100% false because I checked every single gift card before listing them. I contacted the support team immediately and never heard back. I have contacted them several more times since too and still never heard anything, not even an acknowledgement. This is complete crap. Very unhappy with this site and will never use them again. Beware!
Not bad but...

it did take a little longer than I would like to receive my card than similar apps I have used which are instant and I would also like if they added a password protection before purchase so I could stay logged into this app without having to worry about my kids making purchases on it.
DO NOT GET FOOLED

A friend told me about this App, made it look great. So I got it and made a purchase. A digital one. Supposed to be quick and easy. Unfortunately they charged my card and then decided to cancel my order. Now I can’t get what I ordered and I’m missing money. Trying to get customer support is impossible. NEVER MAKING ANOTHER PURCHASE AGAIN. Don’t get fooled. Apps like these are too good to be true anyways. Any reviews saying how great it is must be fabricated or something because there’s honorably nothing good from losing money and not getting what you ordered.
I love Raise

If you want to buy stuff from a store and plan on paying cash for it why not get a gift card for it and save $ while doing it. I want to buy $75 worth of Kohl’s clothes and went to Raise and purchased a gift card for $46 that’s worth $50 and now will apply it to my cart on checkout at Kohl’s and save more! I love Raise! 💗
Great app but.....
by MnKJ on 2018/04/25 23:05
Just switched over from gyft, so far ok but a couple of suggestions if possible. Add the ability to add notes to a stored gc ie: be able to put date purchased amount used and when used etc. also manually sort or sort by new name, I use Home Depot a lot and a couple other ones but but it comes up as the Home Depot and is located at the bottom under t. Still a great app though, thanks...
You must try this if you haven’t already!!!

This app saves you $$$$ every time you buy a gift card! I have saved hundreds of dollars buying and redeeming gifts so far! Buy a gift cars before you shop or before you eat!! Buy a gift card as a gift for someone else.. Don’t pass this up!!
Good app
by YTTERBERG on 2020/03/13 13:51
Yes I sold my gift card and the payment process should be a little faster but other wise then that it is a great app and they really do pay you. Other down side is that it takes a little long to verify my gift card when I post theam up other wise then that great app
Best app
by happiernow99 on 2019/12/28 11:33
I’m all for saving money where I can. After having a baby I’m not able to clip coupons and keep up with that much saving. Well this app is easy to use and helps save money. The gift cards are easy to redeem! I’ve saved $30 on places I was already going to go! Thanks raise!
Slow and unresponsive customer service
by Jin H on 2019/10/02 21:16
Only good when you have no problem with the gift card, they are selling iTunes gift cards from other countries that won’t work in the US. After more than a month, multiple phone calls and 10 emails back and forth their customer service still can’t solve the problem,I end up disputing the charge on my card before 60 expires Really really really bad customer service for these days standard.
Unbelievable terrible customer services
by tzhang4673 on 2019/08/27 17:07
I have been using Raise for a couple years, but the drama of this frozen account ruin my entire experiences. Firstly, they froze your account for no reason, when you called them, they never answered your phone call. Secondly, I tried to send a email about my account and then whoever replied want me to call... if you have endless time and wanna know what a closed loop as a totally disaster is. Be brave and try! Now I am truly worried about my bank account info.
why you remove the sort option
by flutothesky on 2018/09/21 23:39
Used to be great , i can easily sort the gift card by value or discount, also allow me to screen the cards by value, the recent update just remove this VERY VERY USUFUL feature, please bring it back! Thanks!
Nutrisystem cards
by Pat from PA on 2020/04/22 22:02
I’ve been using the Nutrisystem card for, at least, a year. If it wouldn’t have been for Raise there is no way I could have stayed on the program. I Christmas shop for Raise gift cards to pass off the savings to my family.
Lost faith in the company
by Jbev4 on 2019/09/17 00:35
Having several friends who worked here and watched their growth and sputtering on several fronts I deleted as I feel the company has lost their way. Same rationale on why I deleted Uber - if a company leadership team can’t be a good employer or corporate citizen I’m just not going to give them my business. Too many good, young companies out there trying to do the right thing for their customers and employers to spend my money with one I no longer feel good about. Bye bye
BEWARE: they sell bad cards and don’t refund your money
by mrlibretoyou on 2019/07/01 14:14
I bought 2 TJ Maxx cards as a gift for over $100. The person took them to the store and the balance was zero on both (complete waste of time). Immediately reported this to Raise and didn’t get a response. I had to call to get them to look at the ticket (more time wasted). Almost a month later and they still haven’t refunded me and won’t even respond to tickets even though they admitted the cards were bad.
Only App That I Trust!!
by Nicoleh336 on 2018/09/11 03:05
Out of all the discount gift card websites/apps, RAISE is the only one that I trust!! I have used a few other sites and there is almost always an issue or double billing or something.....but I can ALWAYS count on Raise. They have been fast & correct every time.
No refunds for accidental purchases
by bkpeschel on 2019/06/14 17:02
I accidentally hit a buy now on a $50 Krispy Kreme card which had zero discount (full price) and immediately contacted support - days later they respond and say they can’t help me because I have the information which is automatically loaded. So I am out $50 because of an accidental click of a button and no help from the support team and no refunds - they did try to tell me how to use the full price gift card I neither need nor want - but that’s the extent of it. Otherwise you can find some good deals but there is a strong buyer beware here. I am pretty unhappy since I don’t have $50 to waste on unneeded Krispy Kreme cards. Sad about this because I actually thought this site could save me money but now has cost me money I can’t afford.
$30 check out fee or your SSN
by Mo38285829 on 2019/02/19 02:08
Know that if you sell your gift card with this app the price to get your money is $30 for a check to be sent to you. You can check out if you have a verified PayPal account or your Social Security Number to do direct deposit. 100% would not feel comfortable putting my information in a site that says nothing about how they’re going to keep it safe. Took the loss and got 10 check two 25 dollar gift cards.
App is good but Customer Service is horrible
by rain2usa on 2018/11/30 02:52
Been trying to get help with my account for 2 weeks now and can’t get anyone to actually answer my questions or try to help me. As long as you don’t need the CS, everything else is golden.
Hopeful
by SheGeezer on 2018/05/28 19:33
First time buying here so I’m hopeful it works well. Savings can be pretty substantial or none at all depending on cards needed. Problem I have is trying to add PayPal. You can’t use it online, are supposed to be able to use it on the app, but I could never get it to accept it as a listed payment method.
