Well... There I was, ready to use my 25$ BestBuy gift card, the only thing I had to do to complete my purchase was to scratch the security strip/glue thing off that covers the account numbers. I tried using my nails, like every other strip I ever had to remove. That didnt work, at all. So I found a penny to attempt to remove it, this still did not work, next I used the blade of a knife, trying to be careful still. I managed to get it off, but in the process I lost the first four digits.
I found several others who have had this unfortunate event happen to them also and I guess it can be resolved, please shoot me a private message if that is the case.
Also, why do you guys put such strong security glue stuff on it? I imagine this must happen fairly often.

If you are the original purchaser of the Gift Card, and you have the receipt Best Buy can help with this issue. Otherwise, if the original purchaser is someone else, they would need to create an account on the forums for privacy and security reasons and request a replacement of the card. If they have the purchase details that is.

Welcome to the forum!
Will you please send me a private message with the remaining gift card numbers, your full name, phone number, and e-mail address? Also, was this gift card purchased, or a bonus with one of your purchases? If it was purchased, was it purchased on our site or one of our stores, or at a different retailer?
