Sams Pkg 4 x $15 iTunes Cards Not Activating

On sale for $48, 20% off, but they didn't activate at the register. No indication of the fault at the register. I got a rejection when redeeming the 1st card on iTunes. Sams people were nice trying to help but even trying to activate a card from a different pkg of 4 resulted in the same rejection upon attempting to redeem in iTunes.

Got my refund without issue.

Did you enter the barcode-number or did you enter the scratcher-number?

(The right one is the scratcher-number. Scratch off the foil coating to reveal it.)

Scratch off number
When it didn't work at home I went to Sams and demoed the issue using iPad.
Next Sams people got a different pkg of 4 cards, "activated" the pkg set, opened the pkg and scratched off a number which I tried and it failed to redeem.
Frustrating as it was a good sale - 20% off.

They were helpful but baffled. Also said they'd report the issue to their management.

Hmm...

Sometimes the activation-server gives temporary erroneous errors, but it appears you've got that covered by trying a different network some time later.

Sucks.
