Circle K - Gift card but where can I use it!!! Help

    Why does Circle K have a gift card facility and then make it impossible to know where in any of its locations its accepted? I went to Website and its a joke and emailed them .....

    Most likely that only the company owned Circle K garages accepting their gift cards. Big chance that they are bigger sites. You could find locations on their website and filter search results looking for sites with a lounge. I doubt there are non company owned locations with a lounge.

    This. It's very annoying. Add to it the fact that cashiers don't know how much is on the card when it's swiped so you need to have an idea of how much is on it - otherwise it will keep bouncing until it goes down to or below what's exactly on it.

    I had one, it evetually expired after I tried using it in several places without success.

    It did nothing to endear me to Circle K.

    You could just ring them and ask for the closest site address. I found their gift card customer service number by Google in less than a minute.

    However, I agree that this is inconvenient. I suppose they don't have that many gift card transactions to make it worth to invest into their website. But as we know, many places in Ireland are badly managed, people aren't eager for higher standards here.

    Ooh you are 😂harsh. This is the reply I got.

    Thank you for your email.

    !We are very sorry currently the European site locator has removed a number of Irish functions. All of our circle k stations ( excluding circle k express ) can provide circle k gift cards."

    One for all from here on in🤣

    If I assume right, you have asked them for sites a gift card can be used. But instead, they replied where gift cards can be purchased. Basically, they haven't answered to your question?

    I'd be better getting a card from another fuel station. Who's the seconds biggest after the Circle K?

    Also, I'd pick me2you over One4All.
