Okay so I was walking to work and on the ground was what looked like a credit card so I picked it up and took it inside. It was a Visa gift card but it wasnt signed and no name on it. There's 44 bucks on it and no pending transactions. Should I keep it? I mean I have no idea how to track down the owner unless I talk to the grocery store and see if they can see on the camera outside if someone dropped it and maybe catch a license plate. Just seems weird to keep it because its a Visa. If it was a target card I don't think it would bug me so much. What would you do?

Yeah why not. You're not going to be able to track down the owner.

If it's weighing on your conscience, use the it to buy food for the homeless or something.

I've had issues just activating Visa gift cards. No way you're going to find the owner. Don't feel bad, just spend it as you would cash you found on the street.

If it makes you feel better, put it in your savings account.

All that the Visa means, is that it can be used anywhere instead of just Target.

I mean, what you could do, is turn it in to the police. And then after an allotted amount of time, if no one claims it, then they will give it to you....

But honestly, I would just keep it. I mean if you found $44 cash, would you try and track down the owner?

The giftcard is essentially cash...

As with any found money/valuable..

1. If you can reasonably find the owner - do it
2. If it was found in a reputable establishment (business/restaurant/etc) take it to a manager of the business in case someone returns for it
3. If it is public, untraceable, and in a large quantity - take it to a local police station
4. If it is none of the above, keep it

In this case, I say feel comfortable using it.

Put that money to work by funneling it back into the economy by buying yourself a nice dress.

Yeah, you better talk to the grocery store and ask them to check the cameras for the several hour period before you found the card.

You'll probably see yourself on tv at some point
44 dollars exactly being on the card is just too convenient
