Gift cards have been criticized for the ability of the issuer to set rules that are detrimental to the purchaser or card recipient. For example, gift cards may be subject to an expiry date, administrative fees, restrictions on use, and absence of adequate protection in case of fraud or loss.[2] Over time fees may render the value of a gift card zero. However, these issues have been addressed in recent years in some jurisdictions. In the United States, many jurisdictions limit or prohibit all fees or expiration dates for gift cards. Further, because of the negative impact on sales that such policies can have, most merchants have adopted and even advertise a "no fee, no expiration" policy for their gift cards, whether or not state laws require it. In 2011, an estimated 2.5% of gift cards were subject to an expiration date and 2.7% to post-sale fees.[12]

Apple Store Gift Cards are issued and managed by Apple Distribution International and can be applied only to purchases in the United Kingdom from an Apple Retail Store, the Apple Online Store or by calling 0800 048 0408. Gift cards may not be redeemed at the iTunes Store, at Apple resellers, for cash (except as required by law) or for shipments outside the United Kingdom. Gift cards will remain active even if added to the Wallet app on your iOS device. Neither the issuer nor Apple is responsible for any lost or stolen gift cards or use without your permission. Keep them safe; they’re valuable and can be redeemed by whoever finds them. Gift cards are also not for resale. Void where prohibited or restricted by law. Gift card terms and conditions are subject to change without notice and some items may not be available for purchase. Please visit apple.com/go/agc for current terms, conditions and limitations.
