Are you aware of the new gift card laws?

Gift cards. They’re the no-stress, safe bet, guaranteed to love gift. And they’ll no doubt be in high demand from your customers this Christmas. But have you considered if your terms and conditions reflect the new gift card laws?

From the beginning of this month, the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) was amended to provide protections for gift card consumers across Australia.

The specifics include:

  • all gift cards must have a minimum three year expiry
  • gift cards must display expiry dated
  • most post purchase fees on gift cards are banned
