Yesterday Andrew & I went to the Park City outlets to do some Christmas shopping and have dinner with Drew's brother & gf. We were making the loop of stores and Andrew insinuated he wanted to walk in American Eagle. He saw this really great hat he wanted for skiing and for the cold in general. *It is a good looking hat for sure.*
Anyways, I remembered I had a gift card from American Eagle that was given to me by one of my friends from high school--Jason. (I called him after this little experience and we decided it was freshman or sophomore year that he gave it to me--so 8 years ago.) But I haven't been in AE for years. I cant remember the last time I even walked in the store. But I have managed to keep up with my gift card, and when we went to check out I remembered I still had it.
For starters, the girl said the card was so old school that she has never even seen one like that. Then she went to swipe it and there was no money on it. I promised her that there was. She then read the fine print on the back that said, "After three years, a dollar every month is removed from the card." Ha! My card had basically expired. Lamo! I kept the card anyways for good times. I might take a pic of it and add it to the post.
Everyone in the store had a good laugh about it. Moral of the story: don't sit on your gift cards too long!
Like his hat?
