New minimum expiry dates for gift cards

November 04, 2019

All gift cards bought from now on will automatically come with a minimum three-year expiry period.ย ๐Ÿ‘

Even if traders state an earlier expiry date, it will be invalid, and consumers will be entitled to the mandatory three-year period.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

It will also be illegal for traders to charge post-purchase or administration fees that will reduce the value of the gift card.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

This applies across Australia.ย More info here.
