Complaint: Location Address: 1058 Keoulu Drive Kailua, Hawaii 96734 Occurred: 09-19-13 8:10pm I went to the mcdonalds store 3845 drive through to buy dinner for my son and i and used a gift card that my wife purchased for me.This card was verified earlier in the day to have a balance of 25.00 on the McDonalds website. Upon handing the card to the cashier, the cashier told us there was no balance on the card. I explained that we just checked the balance earlier in the day, but they said that it was a unactivated card. I had no money with me so i had to use my bank card which i didnt want to use. The next day i called mcdonalds corporate and they said i did indeed have a 25.00 balance on the card and that it was probably damaged and they would send another one to me but it would take 30 days to come. I explained to the person on the phone that the reason i used the card is because my wife was on a trip and she gave it to me to buy my son and i dinner. I need the card now not 30 days from now. I feel pretty mad about this whole incident and should get reimbursed for the 13.16 that i paid that nite. the card itself looks brand new. it does not look damaged to me. This experience makes me unsatisfied with the whole situation.

Desired Settlement: i want to be remimbursed for the 13.16 that i paid. I did everything right. I buy a gift card, use it for a purchase and get denied payment. How humiliating.

Additional Notes

Complaint: SEVERE BURNS INCURRED FROM MCDONALD'S COFFEE even though McDonald's claims that " temperature of their brewing coffee found it to be within the acceptable range to serve to patrons."After taking first sip, she inadvertently spilled the coffee because it was so scaldingly hot. Doctor thought that 88 year old grandmother may have suffered from possible 3rd degree burns on hand, wrist, and thigh. Grandmother suffered great deal of pain due to this injury which took several weeks to heal.McDonald's only concern was to clean up the split coffee. At no time did any McDonald's personnel ask if 88 year old grandmother was o.k.88 year old grandmother notified McDonald's of this possible safety concern so that other senior citizens who frequent McDonalds would not be hurt as she was. McDonald's only response was via a law firm who sent a letter stating: "At the time you called to report your burn to the restaurant, the store management immediately tested the temperature of their brewing coffee and found it to be within the acceptable range to serve to patrons. The coffee cups supplied by this store carry a cautionary warning that the contents are hot."88 year old grandmother has been going to drink coffee at McDonald's in Kahala Mall for over 30 years. She has never remembered the coffee being so scalding hot as the coffee served to her on January 26, 2013.Our concern is that a person can possible be badly burned from coffee whose temperature is deemed "to be within the acceptable range to serve to patrons." We are concerned that this may be a potential safety issue, especially as many senior citizens frequent McDonald's to drink hot coffee. Product_Or_Service: coffee

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Other (requires explanation) Customers are notified that coffee is hot. Warning label on coffee cups may not be a sufficient warning, as it may not be noticed by customers.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 11, 2013/03/13) */ We are pleased to have a conduit such as the BBB to enable the consumer in achieving understanding of a retail situation that arises.
