Additional Notes

Complaint: I test drove a vehicle using a Audi promotion and was issued a $100 ******** ******* gift card. When I went to use the card, the card was refused. When I contacted ******** *******, they said the initial purchaser of the card had deleted the value. I contacted the sale rep, ********, and the business manager, **** **********, who took the card and said that they would pursue the issue with Audi and I would hear from them. It has been six months and I have heard nothing and when I called McGraph/****** ***** Audi, my call was not returned.

Desired Settlement: I would like the $100 gift card to which I am entitled.

Business Response:

Dear Mr. ******,

Let me start by apologizing for the delay in getting this concern resolved.  I was unaware of the issue, and I apologize that our sales manager **** did not return your call.  I am going to give you a call today.  All I need is the gift card # and pin/security code from you. From there I will get you a new $100 gift card and fed-ex it to you or you are welcome to pick it up at the store, whichever is most convenient for you. 

I look forward to speaking with you,

****** *******



Consumer Response:
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me, provided they follow up on issuing the new card. The requested information has been supplied to the business. It would be best if the replacement card is sent to my home address.
