Target gift cards do not expire, and they have no fees associated with using them, according to Target. Target uses a sales motto in association with gift cards that reads, "No fees. No expiration. No kidding.®" It is a registered trademark of the corporation.
Target's policy goes above and beyond what federal regulations require for gift cards, which state that gift cards must not expire for at least five years after the date issued or the last date reloaded, according to the Federal Trade Commission. The company's gift card rules are also more generous than federal requirements, which permit the issuer to charge inactivity fees after only one year.
