Just a buyer beware warning here for those that purchase Gift Cards this time of year. My 10yr old niece went to spend her Gift4all gift card only to find the £10 she thought was on the card was now only £2.80. 18mths after the purchase of the gift card the card issuer takes 90p per month off the balance until it is zero. My then 8yr old niece had initially lost the card received from her great auntie, and having a good clear out at the weekend it reappeared, and as there is no expiry date on the card she went to spend it thinking she still had the £10. She was very upset to find she hadn’t as obviously being a child and a recipient she didn’t read the T&Cs prior to purchase!
I don’t know of any other Gift Cards that operate like this, most have expiry dates clearly on the front, but you may wish to double check the T&Cs if you have bought Gift Cards, and make sure the recipients know about anything like this.
(I’ve given cash this year!)
