I haven't lost anything, but if I had read the restrictions on use I would not have bothered to buy gift cards. The offer was two $5 bonus cards for a $50 gift card purchase. Since we meet friends at a restaurant a couple of times a month, I thought it would be a good deal. The problem is that the bonus cards can't be used with any other discount or coupons. Regular coupons are normally worth more than $5.
