I heard the noise of it trying to spit the card out, but nothing happened. Then all of a sudden it asked if I wanted a receipt. I usually say no, but this time I was sure to get one. Ball game over.
So I was standing there like an idiot with a line of people behind me thinking, “Now what?”
I could see like 1/8th of the card sticking out of the slot. Not enough was sticking out for me to grab a hold of it. It I had some pliers or something, I could have probably yanked it out.
So I stepped back and let the next person try. Of course, I said it just jammed up for mine, but they were willing to try anyway. Same thing happened. I was hoping it would spit out two cards (mine then that guy’s).
I gave up and went to a different machine and bought another. $164 later, I got one monthly card.
Luckily, I got that receipt. But now it’s like a freaking nightmare to get reimbursed for the one that didn’t come out. One woman on the phone was trying to give me a hard time about how she couldn’t deactivate it until it had been used at least once.
I said I don’t care what you do, just give me my $82 back, or send me another card and I’ll just hold on to it until next month.
