I sign a lot of leases because I frequently move around, so I thought I would try this Rent.com reward $100 Visa card deal. I’ve experienced this same odd issue that seems unreasonable, at the very least. By the time you get the card, it’s basically expired. I’ve never heard of a Visa card that expires in such a short time, almost too short to use it!
In my case, this was no fault of my own, and I had planned on saving it to use it a month or two later. After all, who expects a Visa card to expire within 1-3 months of getting it? Who knew? They don’t tell you up front. Unknowingly, when I went to use it, about two months later (because I like to save money), it had already expired. The card had the entire balance on it/was never used. I’ve contacted the company to see if they are willing to resolve this. I feel this was no fault of my own and misleading. I’m confident they will do the right thing, though. –Ben, CEO of Emera Media, Inc.
