Show me a gift card that doesn't expire or at least start steadily losing money after a certain amount of time.

Interesting... In Canada it's illegal for companies to expire gift cards since they are paid for with money that doesn't expire.

Promotional gift cards can expire. Normal gift cards shouldn't

At least in California, gift cards or gift certificates can not expire by law. I don't know if these are promotions - which would be different - or not.

The money originally spent doesn't expire, but its value does depreciate over time against inflation. I don't think cards should expire, but gradual depreciation after a yearlong period is fair play AFAIC since it simply subjects the card to conditions that are similar to real money. Gift cards aren't government bonds, people.
