Seems this is store specific. I returned an item in February and received the refund on my debit card.

The refund of gift cards to a refund card may be because it allows the franchisee's to easily recover the cost from other stores where the card is used. When the retailer gives you $100 back, that's their cash and perhaps the issuing of refund cards allows them to more easily collect "their cash" back from other franchisees. These refund cards have existed long before gift cards became so popular (the gift cards trees sprouting up at every store) so some of these processes may just be legacy.

I personally find CT is one of the best places for returns and stands behind their store brand products. I have never had a problem returning anything and know of people who returned 10+ year old items with no hassle.

Ah, I didn't think too much about it but I see the difference.
