Default Bank requested id to purchase gift card

They wanted either a debit card, SNN, or driver's license. They said they don't associate any of this info with the card itself - they said it was to verify that I was an account holder with them, and if so, they wouldn't charge me the usual fee associated with purchasing a gift card (they said the "free gift card" is a service for account members only). Note: this is TD bank, and they never charge me for the gift card except for the money I load onto it.

What's weird is, I've been in there before, and they've never asked for me my ID or anything . But I'm a regular and this guy is new, so it could just be he wanted to check I was really an account holder?


I coulda sworn he said something about "it's how we route it" but at that point I got lost in the bank mumbo jumbo talk.

Thoughts? Is the gift card I bought basically bunk? Or is it still safe to use

Seems like a lot of work for a gift card.

Dont see why youd think the card is no good. Its not like youll be using it to load funds on to it. Youll be using it for a stealth account and theres no way for anyone to know the name of the account holder anyway so I dont see anything wrong with using it.
I agree with MM78 though. Seems like a lot of trouble to get something you could just as easily buy at any convenience store for a $2 activation charge...

Offering a gift card without an activation fee is a perk, I don't see any problem with them checking to see if you are an account holder if you take advantage of one of their perks.

But as MM78 and slokor mentioned, if you are worried, the activation fee is not very high on normal gift cards
