I received a Amazon gift card and when scratching of the cover

Resolved Question:

I received a Amazon gift card and when scratching of the cover on the claim code I scratched too hard and now can't read the claim code. I took it back to the store and they wouldn't help since the claim code had been scratched off. HELP... What can I do now. It is for $50. Thanks for your assistance
