Additional Notes

Complaint: A few years ago (exact date unknown) an individual came to my workplace and was selling the Smart Circle card. I purchased this certificate for $49.99 which was supposed to be valid for a "promotional discount vacation" offer. The website listed on this card as the sponsor for this offer is no longer valid, and when I contacted Smart Circle several months ago, I was told this offer was no longer valid, even though the expiration field is blank on this card which implies that there is no expiration to this offer. Since I was advised that this card was no longer valid, I requested either a refund of the purchase price, which was $49.99 or an exchange for a VALID card which I could use, and was denied. I believe that I should be refunded the $49.99 because this Smart Circle card is now just a useless piece of paper and I have been conned. Please contact me to assist me in resolving this issue. Thank you.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of the $49.99 that I paid for the Smart Circle card since it is now useless.
