Gift Cards are purchased for a dollar value and that amount can be used as currency for anything on the GiftGator website. Gift Cards never expire and can be delivered two ways. They can be personalized and delivered via email on a specified date or a plastic card can be personalized and mailed to the gift recipient via Canada Post. Gift Cards are not charged sales tax, as taxes are paid when it is used to purchase something, at which time the applicable taxes are applied.
Experience Vouchers are purchased for a specific experience, activity, service or product on the GiftGator website. Experience Vouchers can be exchanged for another experience etc. or for GiftGator Account Credits at no charge. Experience Vouchers do expire after 24 months, and if exchanged the original expiry date remains in effect. Sales taxes are paid on the Experience Voucher at the time of purchase, so if you are purchasing one as a gift, the gift recipient will not be required to pay the additional tax expense.
Additionally, because experiences can increase in price, for the first year the cost of the experience will remain the price paid. If however, during the second 12 month period, the cost of the experience increases, an additional amount will have to be paid to cover the increase. Experience Providers are not required to keep their prices at the same level beyond 12 months.
