Surely it is wrong to put a date on a gift card, its money spent - just found two gift cards with probably £30 on them but mislaid them and only found when re-decorating daughter's room and emptying all drawers, had got stuck down behind drawer but they are HMV gift cards and dated 2006

could it be for fraud and acount purposes? ie if someone so happens to take a £50 voucher from 7 yrs ago.... their system accounts will b unbalanced and untraceable

I agree they shouldnt be dated - but its a nice little earner fot the companies concerned. Maybe they hope a certain percentage will be mislaid or forgotton about.

It appears if the expiry date was not pointed out at the point of sale then the unfair terms and conditions act may come into play!

He says a retailer must tell the customer conditions apply to the vouchers and be prepared to answer questions about them. "It is not good enough to simply include terms and conditions in the small print with the voucher".
Mr Sidkin says: "Customers would need to show it was not a term included in the contract at the point of sale. If you ask yourself 'was there a time limit pointed out at the point of sale?' and the answer is 'no' then you have a reasonable argument to say the rules have been breached.
"Although the sums are often small, I'm surprised no one has taken a case to court yet," he says.

they never used to stop you spending them no matter how old they were at hmv but i think since fraud has increased they have to bring in some constrictions

write to head ofice and im sure it will get sorted,companies like hmv have generally good customer service

try addressing your compaint in the right way instead of just whinging

142 wardour st, london if memory is correct
