All gift cards bought from now on will automatically come with a minimum three-year expiry period. 👍
Even if traders state an earlier expiry date, it will be invalid, and consumers will be entitled to the mandatory three-year period. 👍👍
It will also be illegal for traders to charge post-purchase or administration fees that will reduce the value of the gift card. 👍👍👍
This applies across Australia. More info here.
