Gift cards and gift certificates can be frustrating sometimes.
You’ve been given a gift card for your birthday to your favorite store, in the amount of $100. You’re on a busy schedule, so some time passes before you finally make it to the store. When you finally get there, you make your selections, and when it’s time to pay, you find that your gift card is worth much less than $100. You find out they’ve been charging you a monthly fee.
In the state of California, this is illegal. It is unlawful for a gift card to incur service fees, including fees for dormancy. It is also illegal for gift cards to expire. They are also redeemable in cash for their cash value.
