Yes the cards themselves expire 5 years after their printing date – regardless of if they have been loaded with funds or not.
Q. What happens if there is money left on the cards after they expire?
75% of any funds left on the card after expiry are returned to Why Leave Town Promotions. These funds are then returned to the commissioning organisation of the individual programs to do with them what they want. It has to be said that these funds are diminishing yearly because cardholders are becoming far more aware of expiry dates simply because of the constant exposure they have because of the Chain Stores unceasing promotion of gift cards.
Q. Who holds the money when a card is loaded up?
All funds that are loaded onto the cards are stored within a separate trust account. No funds are held by Why Leave Town Promotions, the commissioning organisation or the participating businesses.
Q. Will the cards work on my system?

They are made to the same standard as any of the bank issued debit style cards, we have never found an EFTPOS terminal that could not accept our cards. These cards will not work on Square, PayPal or similar Card Readers. Only EFTPOS Terminals.
