It has come to our attention that many fraudulent Escondida gift certificates have been illegally sold or, in some cases, given away. Please be advised that all gift certificates will be checked against our master list and against our credit card records and that no gift certificates dated prior to April 1, 2017, will be accepted without proof that Escondida received funds for those certificates. Please note that Escondida does not offer no-cost gift certificates for charitable organization fund raisers. If you are in possession of an Escondida gift certificate that was provided under such circumstances it is almost certainly a fraudulent gift certificate and will not be accepted.
