Futureshop gift cards for example, can not be used to pay off your Futureshop card. Some gift cards, expire after six months also. As far as I see it. Money given to the retailer in exchange for a certificate should be a binding contract. An individual has given a retailer money in good faith that the voucher can be used for merchandise of the card holders choosing. To put limitations of this is a crock.
Boy, do I hope this law passes!
