By law, gift cards cannot expire in less than 5 years, but there may be non-use fees. In 2009, President Obama signed the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act (a.k.a.
The law states that a gift card or general purpose prepaid card may not expire any earlier than five years from the date of activation (or the date when funds were last added to the card) and that if there is an expiration, the terms and conditions of that expiration must be clearly disclosed prior to purchase. Once the gift card law went into effect, companies complied and, in many cases, just eliminated expiration dates altogether.
Several states also subsequently passed even stricter state-level gift card laws that made expiration dates illegal. To avoid confusion across state lines (e.g. our gift card can expire in Arizona but not in California), most companies adopted the no-expiration rule for all of their stores in all states.
If you don’t find it, chances are good the card will be valid as long as the store remains solvent. (If the store goes into Chapter 11 bankruptcy, then the gift card may be impacted for a different reason.
Though I’m speaking generally here, it’s a good idea to check the terms and conditions for your card to see if the expiration date applies to your situation. Gift cards are now exempt from dormancy, inactivity or service fees unless the card has gone unused for a year and the non-use fee terms are clearly disclosed prior to purchase.
Use any remaining value quickly to stop further inactivity fees from being charged. The next time you go to the store, pay with the promotional gift card.
If you don’t find the answer, call the issuing company. When you give or receive a gift card, the last thing you want is the balance to disappear because the issuer has deducted fees slowly.
Finally, consumers must be made aware of all gift card fees. These rules apply to retail gift cards and Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover gift cards.
The Federal Reserve says that some states already have rules that limit fees on gift cards and restrictions on gift card expiry. The state law is effective when it provides greater protection than the federal law.
You have 21 days after the end of the billing cycle to pay the balance in full to avoid any interest charges. Customers will pay $5 or 5% of the amount of a balance transfer, whichever is greater.
Remember that rewards are most valuable to people who don’t carry a balance. You can easily pay more in interest charges than the rewards are worth.
Second, don’t make purchases solely to earn rewards. Saving your money and investing it will always win out over spending for rewards.
