All gift cards from Smash N Bash LLC (aka: “seller”) do not have a set expiration date. But please be aware that federal and state laws dictate how we handle e-gift and physical gift cards.
Federal law requires that the expiration date of gift cards be no sooner than five years from date of purchase. However, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, cards unused after 3 years are deemed “Abandoned.” Cards with remaining balances will be escheated to the Texas Comptroller after 3 years. All escheated balances may be claimed through the Texas Comptroller’s office at https://comptroller.texas.gov. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to provide proof of ownership to any escheated funds to the comptroller to claim any unused balances.
Gift Card Redemption:
All Smash N Bash LLC gift cards are valid for the purchase of services, add-ons, or merchandise offered by Smash N Bash LLC. Gift Cards cannot be redeemed for cash except when allowed by law (maximum state required $2.50). The maximum cash redemption allowed by Smash N Bash LLC is $5.00. Any cards that are redeemed with a balance greater than $5.00 will not be “cashed.” The remaining balance will remain on the gift card for future use.
Gift Card Maintenance Fees:
Beginning 1 year (366th day) from the date of purchase, we will charge a reasonable fee per the Texas Commerce & Business Code Chapter 604. The fee has been established as the greater of $5 or 10% of the balance of the card as of the 366th day. This fee will be deemed as a card maintenance fee. This fee will continue to be assessed every 30 days thereafter continued maintenance of the cards account until the 3rd anniversary of the cards purchase or until the balance reaches $5 or less (whichever occurs first). On the 1,100th day after purchase, any remaining balance on the card will be declared “Abandoned” and escheated to the Texas State Comptroller. Fees are not eligible for refund if the card is “Abandoned.”
Lost or Stolen Cards:
All gift cards belong to the bearer of the card and are transferable. If a card is lost or stolen, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to notify us immediately for a card to be reissued. If the card has been redeemed, we will need proof of the card being stolen (by police report) before we can reissue the card. Without proof of theft, cards that have been redeemed may only receive the remaining balance of the card (if any).
Physical cards will need to be picked up from our location.
E-Gift vouchers can also be reissued through our e-gift card processor Square, Inc.
