I bought a £20 giftcard online and I've received 2 of them but only paid once. Its not for a shop its for the cinema. I've been checking my bank account for the past few days to make sure I definitely was only charged once. Wwyd? Keep the second one or tell the cinema?

I'd like to think I'd tell them but, if I'm being completely honest, I'd keep them both.

I'd tell them - they'll probably tell you to keep it anywY.

You may actually find that one is cancelled when you go to use it.

If the mistake is flagged at their end. Assuming it's a plastic card and not paper vouchers.

Not sure what I would do to be completely honest

tell them. What dilemma?

PurpleTreeFrog Tue 24-Nov-15 14:37:27

Normally I'd say don't tell them. But in this case I think you should call up and enquire about the mistake... Not for moral reasons, but because they might not both be activated.

Pass the second onto someone less fortunate ?

OnlyLovers Tue 24-Nov-15 14:42:15

In all honesty, I'd keep it.

But be prepared for only one of them to have been activated/to work.

If they DO both work, use one to take a friend who needs a treat. [not v moral]

Giraffe why the hmm face?

I'd keep it. You might very well find it's been cancelled but if not enjoy.

the hmm is because there is another incredibly similar thread in chat

Another situation where I think MN world is very different to real world. I would keep them and use them - but I would be prepared for one of them not to work...

Binary is that therefore a roundabout way of calling troll?? I can imagine these things happening especially more so in the run up to Xmas, or am I just very naive?

Keep it or gift it.

Giraffe well spotted! I didn't make the connection even though I was on that thread. I'm also now hmm

The scenarios are not the same. The other poster had already contacted the shop to tell them of the mistake and was asking if she should sell the second one or give it to charity.

I've been sent 2 shampoos by an eBay seller, 2 lip glosses from an online chemist, and 2 makeup sponges by Bobbi Brown website all in the last year.

Am I a liar too?

I don't know you so can't say.

You could have just made that up though. grin

Last Xmas Amazon sent me something I hadn't actually paid for. It had been in my basket at one stage, but I had removed it before paying. I wasted time on 3 phone calls trying to explain to the company who sent it. With no delivery note or proper reference they were unable to deal with the problem.

In the end I gave up and just donated the £25 item to a charity shop. Not really because of a particularly high moral stance, but I had already bought another similar gift (for a family member) and had no real use for the item.

LilyDaisyPoppyRose Tue 24-Nov-15 15:44:36

WTf that other thread isn't me. My worry is they'll charge me for the second one.

What's the dilemma? It's not yours to keep, it's obviously a mistake as you haven't paid for it. Don't be dishonest, it will come back to you.

I'm zure dozens of mistakes happen every day, more so in the few weeks up to Christmas. It would be positively weird if some of them didn't happen to MNers. We had one today as well.

I would get them checked to see which one is activated. Be a bit embarrassing if you give a card as a gift and there is no money on it.
Personally,..I would contact the place I ordered it from and tell them. I wouldn't keep it.

It's stealing. Are you a thief?
