Then when they took one back it sent her another email saying her gift had been CANCELLED. I'm not going to argue with you people. I have one word for the day and it's ACCOUNTABILTY.
So you agree, then, that no matter what happened, your mother would have known you only intended to spend $50, but you refuse to accept responsibility for it? Kobo could, perhaps, have handled things better, but once you took the whiny tone of "I want free money," I'd have refunded the mistaken transaction, too, since it was clearly a mistake and their merchant service agreement requires them to.
If you're concerned that your mother thinks you're cheap, go back and buy her another gift card. But it isn't about how much she gets, is it?
