Do their gift certificates expire? There's a stamped date on it but doesn't say expiry... just wondering if anyone have experience with these?

I believe there is a law that forbids the expiration of gift cards. I recently used an old one from a mall, 5 or 6 years old that had a expiration date on it. There was no problem using it.

In BC, gift cards (a.k.a. pre-paid purchase cards or gift certificates) are not permitted have expiry dates or fees except in certain circumstances.

Some of these exceptions include:

Mall cards are allowed to have expiry dates and charge fees.

Gift cards for a specific service or item (as opposed to an amount of money) can have expiry dates.

Telephone cards, pre-loaded credit card or tickets for events are not considered pre-paid purchase cards (or gift cards).

Also please remember that the law does not apply to any gift cards purchased prior to November 2008.
