Kudos to Apple - they honor their gift cards!

I found an ancient gift card - has an isight camera as one of the products on the front!

Just placed an order for a new set of beats headphones for my wife, and Apple readily honored the $13.55 left on the card.

So many other companies put expirations on these kind of cash-returns.

Depends on the state.



It is what it is.

Depends on the state.

That is a minimum as to whether a card can expire or not. Many companies with gift cards have better policies on expiration than what many states require, including not expiring the cards even where they could.

FWIW starbucks gift cards do not expire and fees are not taken out. my son's had a few dollars remain on it even though he hadn't used it in about 5 years.

That's why I love C-A.

CA general laws are gift cards don't expire, and they don't get service or dormancy fees.

There are, of course some exceptions, but for most of us they're few and rare.

One exception is non-specific, use anywhere cards, i.e. Visa prepaid debit cards and similar.

Some of these can be issued with an expiration date, but it must be printed on the front of the card.

They can also (and usually do) have dormancy fees and they don't have to tell you they do.

So you get a card and put it in the sock drawer and forget about it.

It's entirely possible the next time one uses it, it doesn't have the balance they expected.

I found a three year old card from Target and from B&H and they spent well, no problem.

So yeah, it depends on the state.
