Gift Card Laws
With gift cards just gaining steam in the UK, legislation is fairly limited. Only recently have shoppers called for government regulations on gift cards after several popular stores went into administration. While this type of scenario is rare, it's important to have consumer protections in place.
In the United States and Canada, gift cards have been popular for quite awhile. Both countries have passed laws limiting fees gift card issuers may charge and prohibiting expiry dates. Hopefully with increasing consumer demand, similar legislation will be introduced to the UK in the near future.
