This week we received the following question on our blog from a consumer. Check out our video below for the answer!

Jeremy asks:

“Do the {BC gift card} laws only apply to the kind of gift card that is plastic with the magnetic strip?

My manager got me a gift card to a local restaurant (a general card for food and/or drinks), which is just a folded paper card listing the amount of the gift, who authorized it, etc. I recently found that it had fallen in-behind my bookshelf, but it is now 2 years past the expiry they wrote on it. They refuse to honour it. Do the laws still apply to local business gift cards? Or do they only apply to the plastic ones with magnetic strips? Thanks!”
