Activating Visa Gift Cards without Activation Code

Recently, I bought a $200 Visa gift card from Staples and I either threw out the activation code or I lost it and I didn't have my order number either.

I thought I had just lost out on $200.  Manufactured spending has really low margins so if you lose $200 it can take some time before you make that back.

Luckily, I saw that Travel with Grant gave some advice on how to active your gift card before the activation card comes.  I assumed it should work just as well for me.  I called Gift Card Mall and was able to activate the card by talking to a rep who only asked my name and address and the gift card number.  2 hours later my card was active.  Boom!  Thank you Travel with Grant
