Red cross sent me a letter stating that if I gave blood platelets by the end of march that I would have a choice of a $25 gift card at many different restaurants. I spent 2 hrs giving those platelets on friday, [protected] and proceeded with the instructions to get my $25 gift card. I had my heart set on outback steak house. When the instructions said that I had to call giftcertificates.com customer service at [protected], I did just that. The lady that answered said that all they had was gift cards for $20 for home depot and that was what I was getting. I told her that I had no need for that gift card but I got it anyway. I called to complain, so yesterday I got a gift certificate for $5 to outback. Rather than fighting over this, let this be my request for you to remove me from all donor requests. If you can’t keep your word to me, then I can no longer give blood.
