Gift cards tips for the giver & receiver
So you know, under the new Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009, unless the expiration date is clearly disclosed, gift cards and other similar cards cannot expire within five years from the date they were activated.
- Check the expiration date. Read the fine prints.
- Save the card's ID number and customer service phone.
- If your card is lost or stolen, report it to the customer service number immediately, supply the ID number, and request a replacement.
- Spend the value on your card before the maintenance fees start.
