How do eGift cards work?
eGift cards are electronic gift cards that are sent and delivered via email. To purchase an eGift card through our website, click here. This will take you to our partner site, who will take the order, process the payment and send the eGift card. Once the purchase has been processed, the eGift card will be sent to the recipient within a few hours or at the time or date of your choosing. The recipient can print out their eGift card and use it at any Selland Family Restaurants location.

How are eGift cards different from plastic gift cards?
Plastic gift cards can be purchased in-store or sent via mail. eGift cards are electronic gift cards that are sent via email and can be printed out.

How long does it take for a recipient to receive their eGift card?
If you choose your eGift card to be sent out “Now,” it may take up to 45 minutes to an hour for the recipient to receive their eGift card in their inbox. You may also select your egift card to be sent at a future date.

The eGift card recipient hasn’t received their eGift card. How can it be resent?
If your recipient has not received their eGift card, please email help@sellandfamily.com with the four-digit order confirmation number and we will resend the eGift card to the email provided in your order. Please note, eGift cards are often mistakenly deleted by recipients, organized into different inbox categories or get caught in spam/junk folders.

If I live out of the country, can I order an eGift card?
Our system currently does not allow payments from sources outside of the United States, but we do have Mail a Gift Card option that does.

Why am I receiving a Fraud Alert notification when I’m trying to submit an eGift card order?
This will happen if your credit or debit card was declined, usually due to an incorrect billing address, insufficient funds on the account, etc. If a charge is declined, please check with your card issuer before making additional attempts. If there is an issue that still needs to be corrected, attempting to place the order again will likely result in additional failed orders and pending transactions.

Why is there a pending charge on my credit card or bank account when my order did not go through?
If your order was not completed or declined due to a fraud alert, you may see a pending charge on your account. Your bank will release the hold on your funds typically within 1-3 business days, depending on your bank’s timeframe policies. Your card will not be charged for incomplete or declined orders.

Why am I seeing a “double charge” on my bank account after I re-attempted to purchase an eGift card?
If you re-attempt the payment successfully, the pending charge from the first attempt may appear to be a “double charge.” This pending charge will be removed when your bank releases the hold on your funds.

What is the difference between a pending transaction and a posted transaction?
Pending transactions occur when merchants need pre-authorization for a purchase or if a transaction was made after bank hours but have yet to clear your account. Posted transactions are purchases that have cleared your account. Once the transaction posts to your account, the pending transaction will be removed within a few business days, and you can use the funds again.

Where can I use my eGift card?
You may redeem your eGift card at all Selland Family Restaurants except for Selland’s at the Golden 1 Center.
