What stops people from stealing these games?! My co worker uses those Simon gift cards and keeps the games!! There has to be a way they track this kind of stuff

pretty sure they made it where you can't use disposable credit card/gift card things

Not only that, but I've read they make paper cut-outs of said game and do the same.

Anyways, ya, you can't use 'prepaid' or 'reloadable' CCs, I've tried :p
To get a movie you have to swipe a card so you can be charged for late fees and such.

Yea, but there's not really anyway that they can prove that the last person was the one who did it

The ones that are reloadable that have your name on them are different. I meant the reloadable cards you can buy at places like Target or Walmart(those prepaid visa cards you can get and place money on whenever you want), not one that has actually been issued to you.
